The New York Knicks are going to make a splash in free agency this Summer.
That’s if you believe all the hype.
The latest suggest that KD and Kyrie will be paired together in the Big Apple.
Some executives and agents in NBA circles remain convinced that Durant and Irving will team up on the Knicks when both become free agents this offseason. It is believed that Durant will not sign with New York unless another star player joins him there, and Irving is seen as the most likely. One agent believes that the two players are debating who will be the first to sign with the Knicks. That would enable them to be seen as the leader, while the second player to sign would be considered a follower.
My guess is KD would sign first, then Kyrie.
But isn’t that exactly why Kyrie left the Cavs.
He didn’t want to be in LeBron’s shadow.
Signing with the Knicks after Durant would automatically make him the Robin to KD’s Batman.
