With the 2019 NBA playoffs in progress, non-playoff teams focus on the NBA Draft and Free Agency, which includes Kevin Durant.
While Durant has the opportunity to win three championships at the same time with the Golden State Warriors, there is uncertainty.
As Durant focuses on today, there have been many reports in the 2018-19 NBA season that he will not re-write.
With the Warriors-Los Angeles Clipper's first batch tied at 1-1, it doesn't seem much has changed for Durant, according to Tim Kawakami from The Athletic:
Most in the NBA do not expect Durant to rewrite with the Warriors no matter what happens in the playoffs. It's the silent bargain I believe in the Warriors' headliners all made – hanging together to give their shot to a three-peat and then if Durant leaves, he leaves no excuses needed. But there are of course also tensions in it.
Since the Lakers have estimated $ 38 million in space, they have and continue to be linked to Durant. But the latest report has the Lakers second or third on free agency listings by Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Klay Thompson.
To begin the offseason, the Lakers are still without a president for basketball operations and head coaches. While Secretary General Rob Pelinka reportedly leads to coaching search, it will likely have a major impact on potential free agents joining LeBron James and the young core.
