San Francisco, CA ~ Breaking News! @kdtrey5 will take his “talents” to the Bay for the 2017 NBA Season. The announcement comes in after a year of speculation on where the Super Star Power Forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder would play amid free agency.
Durant made the decision public on The Players’ Tribune Monday morning. He can’t officially sign until July 7. Who could blame KD? The possibility of joining All-Stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson would be a no brainer for even the modest of players in the league. Opportunities to create a dynasty only come along once in a lifetime; let alone, a chance to play with the Golden State Warriors.
His decision has been the most highly anticipated UFA (unrestricted free agent) move of the summer. The 2014 MVP and four-time scoring champion led the Oklahoma City Thunder to the NBA Finals in 2012, and to the Western Conference finals in four of the past six years — and he’s only 27. He recovered from a broken bone in his right foot that cost him much of last season to post one of the best years of his career.
Durant met with the Thunder, Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat.
Appeared in 542 games (542 starts) and averaged 27.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks in 38.2 minutes.
