Kevin Durant’s future with the Warriors remains uncertain.
Golden State has dominated the league and won back-to-back titles since Durant joined the team in July 2016. But, there are rumors circulating the 30-year-old star may become a free agent and head elsewhere this offseason.
The Warriors are unsure what Durant will do this summer, an unnamed team source recently told The Athletic.
The source told the Athletic:
“We have no idea what he’s going to do. Everyone wants him to stay. There’s not much more we can sell him on. If he leaves, we’ll think of it as being lucky to have him for three great years.”
Durant is averaging 27.6 points, seven rebounds and 5.9 assists in 35.4 minutes per game for Golden State this season. He’s shooting 51.6 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from 3-point range.
Durant declined to discuss his upcoming free agency when he was asked about it at All-Star weekend.
“I play basketball for the Warriors,” Durant said. “My main concern is being the best basketball player I can be. I have no concerns about trades or transactions throughout the season with other teams. Has nothing to do with me.”
The Warriors will return to action against the Kings on Thursday. They’ll enter that matchup with a Western Conference-best 41-16 record.
