Boston Celtics soon to be free agent, Kyrie Irving, has declined his player option with the Celtics, meaning he’ll become a free agent on June 30th.
Durant, who underwent surgery earlier this week, is expected to receive a max offer from the Warriors, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, as Golden State hopes to keep its dynasty alive by retaining both Durant and Klay Thompson.
Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher reported Friday that Durant is planning to live in New York this summer, and that the two-time Finals MVP has already met with Irving to discuss the future.
“What I’m being told is he’s out of the hospital, he’s moved into a hotel for the time being in the New York area. He and Kyrie have met. I don’t know whether Kyrie went to see him at the hospital or at the hotel, but they’ve met and they’ve continued their discussion about potentially playing together next season. Take that as you will.
And my understanding is that [KD has] moved all his stuff. He’s planning on spending the summer and the foreseeable future in New York. He’s not going back out to the West Coast.”
With KD injured, their plans to play together will have to be on hold for a bit. KD living in New York is something though.
The 2019 NBA Draft is just a few days away on Thursday, June 20th, and free agency will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET on June 30th.
It’s going to be crazy.
