Clippers’ Kevin Durant recruitment billboards are up in LA
The NBA’s free agency period has not yet officially begun, yet teams are already positioning themselves in myriad ways to help land the star free agents they’ve been angling for months – or even years.
One such team is the Los Angeles Clippers and their pursuit of the Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant. In fact, a Clippers fan one-upped the fan devotion that the Knicks have recently produced in the form of a billboard. Per Farbod Asnaashari of SB Nation, the billboard features a cleverly hidden message that can be seen as the moving billboard changes.

Well-played, Clips fans.
Of course, there are plenty of other big names tied to the Clippers such as Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, and Klay Thompson, but the biggest name on that list is almost certainly Durant.
Durant, however, will miss all of the 2019-20 season due to his ruptured Achilles’ tendon, but that certainly won’t stop teams – and fanbases – from doing their darnedest to woo him to their team on a maximum contract. Many of the suitors for Durant are well-known: The Warriors will certainly look to re-sign KD, though it’s unclear if he wants to return after a semi-fiasco. The Clippers are certainly on his radar, as are the Knicks and Nets.
Will this dope billboard be enough to sway KD? Only time will tell, but it seems that Kyrie and KD are joined at the hip, and if the Nets are their preferred destination… Either way, free agency will surely be action-packed and entertaining.
