Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant will meet with four teams to kick off free agency Sunday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Along with the Warriors, Durant intends to meet with the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers.
Durant, 30, is an unrestricted free agent and despite rupturing his right Achilles in the NBA Finals, is highly likely to get a maximum-salaried contract. He is expected to miss all of next season with the injury.
“There is expected to be some combination of face-to-face meetings and communications by other means with Durant and his business manager, Rich Kleiman,” Wojnarowski reported.
Durant declined a player option in his contract worth $31.5 million earlier in the week to enter free agency.
He has been to three straight Finals with the Warriors, winning the first two. This past season, Durant averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 78 games.
There has been speculation Durant won’t make a decision on where he’ll sign until sometime next week.
The Knicks, Nets and Clippers all have the capability to sign two max-level free agents.
