At this point, it would be the shock of the century if Kevin Durant doesn't sign with the New York Knicks this summer. You know it and I know it.
And now, the Warriors' players themselves even know it. According to ESPN's Ian Begley, some within the Warriors locker room believe KD is headed to The Big Apple this summer.
Some of Durant’s former teammates think it’s going to happen, per ESPN sources. Several of his current teammates have told friends that they think it’s going to happen, sources said. Opposing agents believe it’s a fait accompli: “Just a matter of putting pen to paper,” is how one agent of another top free agent in the 2019 free agent class put it.
It seems all but inevitable, especially considering this latest bit of evidence. Besides Durant and his family, who else would know more about his future than the guys that play alongside him every game?
Judging by the recent activity of the Knicks, it is fair to assume even they know Durant is on the way.
As the Golden State Warriors close out what could be their third straight NBA Championship, and the rumors continue to heat up, one has to wonder if KD is playing his final seasons in a Warriors jersey.
