Kevin Durant Might Have Hinted He Will Return To Warriors While Talking To Klay Thompson

Warriors Owner Joe Lacob 'Confident' Team Can Re-Sign Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson

Kevin Durant’s times as part of the Golden State Warriors could not be ending in the near future after all as KD might have hinted his intentions to stay with the franchise talking with Klay Thompson during the Finals Game 6 when the shooting guard suffered an injury and had to leave the game.

Durant is also injured and now both players could miss the entire 2019-20 season while rehabbing from major wounds. The big question now is how they will do that, each one in a different team or as teammates. Thompson will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and Durant is expected to decline the final-year option on his contract.

After Thompson suffered a torn ACL in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, his father Mychal told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that Klay had received a call from Durant.

“I heard them talking,” Mychal Thompson said. “But I don’t think they’d want me to divulge it.”

Even with his hesitations, Mychal let us know some things that were discussed between the two stars; he could have been paraphrasing the things that were said, but Mychal revealed Klay and Durant were talking about having “unfinished business” together.

“They were encouraging each other to come back strong,” Mychal Thompson said. “They got unfinished business.”

The actual meaning of those words remains unknown; they could have talked about their eventual free agent deals, but everything seems to point out that this was Durant confirming he was going to come back with the Dubs.

Despite their injuries, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported on Friday that the Warriors intend to offer Durant and Thompson max contracts. However, they aren’t the only team that doesn’t care about these two’s injuries since more teams are believed to try to make a run for any of them or even both.
