That’s the decision of ESPN journalist Max Kellerman.

Durant can enter free company in the summertime of 2019 if he opts out of the ultimate yr of his contract with back-to-back defending champions the Golden State Warriors.

The 30-year-old has lengthy been anticipated to just do that with the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks among the many touted locations he may select.

And his future has been known as into query once more in current weeks following a bust-up with team-mate Draymond Inexperienced because the pair rowed throughout a loss to the LA Clippers.

Durant insists the fall-out won’t affect whether or not or not he stays with the NBA champions – the place he has gained two titles in two years and been topped the Finals MVP in each seasons.

However it has been broadly instructed his time within the Bay Space will come to an in depth on the finish of this yr.

And Kellerman thinks his subsequent transfer can go an extended technique to altering the panorama of the league and shifting the ability from Golden State elsewhere.

Kellerman stated on First Take: “Wherever he thinks he can win essentially the most, the place will be his workforce? Does he go meet LeBron [James] in LA? I don’t assume that’s that seemingly. 

“Does he go to the Clippers? Perhaps if Kawhi [Leonard] would meet him there however then who’s workforce is it? 

“Does he go to the Knicks? Perhaps not if Kyrie [Irving] beats him to it, perhaps he would really feel a sure method about that. 

“I truly assume if I go searching, right here’s how he stays in Golden State – in the event that they lose the title this yr. 

“In the event that they don’t win a championship and Golden State says, ‘Watch this, so long Draymond.’ 

“Then he might really feel there’s unfinished enterprise and the truth will set in that wherever he goes he must play with one other MVP-calibre participant to win championships, he stays put. 

“In any other case, even a spot like Boston might be – he’s going to search for the situation the place he’s going to be recognised as the most effective participant and it’s his workforce and he can win championships. 

“KD is the stability of energy within the NBA. He stays in Golden State, they will’t lose. 

“If he went to the Knicks and [Kristaps] Porzingis received wholesome, they’d be a load. If he went to Boston, they’d win. If he went to LA, they’d win. He’s the stability of energy.”
