NBA rumors: Only Kevin Durant ‘changing his mind’ can derail Knicks plans originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

Kevin Durant is still a member of the Golden State Warriors. But most national pundits are getting ready for Durant’s introductory press conference with the New York Knicks this summer.

At this point, everyone expects Durant and Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving to decline their player options and join forces on the Knicks.

It’s not a done deal, though, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported Saturday.

The idea of Durant changing his mind and staying with the Warriors isn’t completely new. On Friday, The Athletic’s Sam Amick wrote this:

There’s a recent sense in Warriors circles that maybe he’ll think twice about joining them on this trek across the Bay Bridge, that this recent stretch of domination and fan appreciation might be the kind of thing that convinces him to – cue LeBron James‘ personal motto that hasn’t exactly panned out in Laker Land – RWTW (Roll With The Winners).

Let’s be honest: Durant probably has no idea what he’ll do on July 1. In 2016, he waited until he heard all the pitches in the Hamptons before picking the Warriors. That probably will be the case again this summer.

Just sit back, enjoy the Western Conference finals and a potential NBA Finals, and we’ll worry about Durant’s free agency when we get there.
