Golden State Warriors’ All-Star Kevin Durant is going to be a free agent once again next summer, and he realizes that this means a lot of questions about his future. While Durant had several different approaches in the past when it comes to free agency, this time he says he will be honest and transparent about the process.
“Just be honest,” – Durant told ESPN when asked about the free agency. “I was honest with my decision, but just like outwardly if people ask me about it, don’t be ashamed to talk about why I decided to move teams and switch teams because it’s not the end of the world. I didn’t do anything against the law, you know what I’m saying? That’s what I thought happened the first time.“
Kevin Durant caused a big shake-up in NBA in 2016 when he decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and sign with Golden State Warriors. Besides the fact that the Warriors had three All-Stars on the team, the element of the surprise was even bigger because Durant didn’t give any indications that he might leave OKC.
If he decides to switch teams once again, his decision will once again create a lot of buzz. But, at the moment, Durant is trying not to think about it and wants to focus on basketball.
“I dealt with it before,” – he added. “I just try to be as honest as I can. I’m not going to tell people what I’m thinking. … Some days I think about my free agency, some days I don’t. Some days I think about what my future looks like, some days I don’t. I’m just human. That’s just natural for me. But I can’t sit down and talk to people about it because I want to keep playing, I want to focus on the season.“
Since joining the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant won two consecutive NBA title while getting NBA Finals MVP award both times.
