Earlier in the season, NBA rumors had Kevin Durant being linked to a lot of teams including the defending champions Golden State Warriors. After the classic Western Conference Finals match-up between the Warriors and Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder, the speculations are back as the superstar will hit free agency in the 2016 offseason.
One comment from Durant’s rival in the West Finals series should add more to the NBA rumors that the Warriors will eventually recruit Durant when free agency opens in July.
“[Durant] made some really tough shots, which is what I expected,” Iguodala said via the East Bay Times abot Durant. “He’s a fighter and competitor and fought to the end. It must be fun playing with a guy like that.”
Earlier in the year, there were NBA rumors that even with the championship ring last year and still contending for the NBA title this season, the Warriors will still pursue Durant in free agency to add more firepower to their loaded line-up featuring Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Iguodala.
Meanwhile, Durant said in the postgame press conference that he is still not thinking about his free agency plans.
“I mean, we just lost like 30 minutes ago, so I haven’t even thought about it. I’m just embracing my teammates and just reflecting on the season. I’ll think about that stuff, I don’t know when. But we just lost an hour ago, 30 minutes ago, so I don’t know,” Durant said after the Warriors beat his team in Game 7 on Monday.
Being the No. 1 free agent this summer, Kevin Durant is the headline of the NBA rumors that has linked him to many NBA teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and even powerhouse teams San Antonio Spurs and Warriors.
