Durant is linked with so many teams across the NBA, especially now that we are
aware of the possibility that he becomes a free agent.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst believes that the Lakers aren’t a good fit for Durant, and he suggested that the player should better go somewhere else.
There are less than six weeks until the free agency, and there are so many rumors regarding Durant’s future plans. He is one of the greatest free agents available. The same applies to Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler. The Golden State Warriors believe that Durant will probably re-sign with the franchise. Other reports suggest that he will leave the Golden State and sing with other team. The New York Knicks are favorites, and the Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets are also an option. Where will he go.
“I cannot see him playing
for the Los Angeles Lakers,” Windhorst said
on the Stephen A. Smith radio show. “I
just don’t see him wanting to team up with LeBron.
“As much as he has a good relationship with him, I think
that defeats the point of what he’d be trying to prove which is he can go do it
as the centrepiece of a team. If he’s
going to stay with another star, why not stay with the guys he’s with right now
because that’s working out really beautifully.
I don’t think it has anything to do with Magic, Jeanie or
Pelinka. It doesn’t make sense to me
that that would be his move.
“I can almost see him making more sense for him to join
just about any other team. You
could almost convince me that going to Detroit would be amazing for him and
playing alongside Blake Griffin as opposed to having to go with what it would
do for him to play alongside LeBron. I could
be wrong though because one thing about Kevin that is undeniable is that he has
changing moods. The way he feels here in
mid-May has nothing to do with the way he may feel in five or six weeks and
that’s his reality.”
