The Knicks aren’t the only group intending to sign Kevin Durant in July.
Back in mid-December – similarly as Durant and the Warriors were going to confront Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors – ESPN’s Brian Windhorst provided details regarding the Clippers’ ground breaking strategy.
[Clippers proprietor Steve] Ballmer’s vision is to arrive Leonard or Durant – or both, insofar as they’re swinging for the fences – and afterward ride them to glory and a new arena in Inglewood that could transform the Clippers into one of the premier franchises in the league.
What’s more, as Sam Amick of The Athletic composed on Thursday, the vision hasn’t changed. Furthermore, since the Clippers delivered Tobias Harris to Philly, they are in a superior position to strike.
There’s as yet a staggering sense around the alliance that Durant is bound to sign with the Knicks, however this (exchanging Harris) was as clear an indication of any that the Clippers aren’t abandoning their terrific arrangement of landing Durant and Kawhi Leonard this summer.
This is no state mystery: It has been Durant and Leonard—and afterward every other person—for a long while now.
We adapted recently that the threat of Durant leaving for the Knicks has “never felt more real to the Warriors.”
It’s hazy if Golden State feels as undermined by the Clippers.
Yet, one thing to dependably remember as the sweepstakes unfurl is the amount Durant regards Jerry West, who currently works for the Clippers.
Keep in mind, before the two-time Finals MVP reported he was going to sign with the Warriors in 2016, he requested to talk on the phone with The Logo (who worked for Golden State at the time).
However, don’t worry about what may happen five months from now.
Simply appreciate watching Durant go up against the Suns today around evening time in a Warriors uniform.
