The New York Knicks are in the midst of a dreadful season after winning just 29 games last season, but they’re reportedly trying to make a huge splash this summer. At 9-25, the Knicks haven’t reached the postseason since 2013, but they’re reportedly going “all-in” on a nine-time All Star.
The Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant has a player option for the 2019-2020 season and could be on the move once this season is over. And according to The Athletic’s Frank Isola, the forward may soon call the Big Apple home, writing ,“Everyone says Knicks” are the likely next home for Durant, citing a “prominent” agent.
Adding a player like Durant certainly would shake things up in the Eastern Conference. The 30-year-old already has quite the résumé, with two NBA Finals MVPs, four scoring titles and eight All-NBA selections. Durant potentially could add a third NBA championship with Golden State, should it make yet another trip to the finals.
There’s no telling what Durant will do for 2019, but all eyes will be on the possible free agent’s decision come the summer.
