Brian Windhorst on Nike’s campaign potentially revealing Kevin Durant’s free agency decision
ESPN insider Brian Windhorst doesn’t believe Nike’s new Kevin Durant shirt confirms that KD will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors.
Windhorst isn’t reporting that Durant won’t come back to the Warriors, but he says Nike sets up marketing plans for all scenarios.
The KD shirt has all the teams and cities Durant has played for. The last two are Oakland and San Francisco. The Dubs move to San Francisco next season to play in their new arena, The Chase Center.
“Here’s what I know from the LeBron free agencies. Nike sets up marketing plans for all scenarios,” Windhorst said on ESPN’s The Jump. “They had a scenario where LeBron was going to stay in Cleveland or go to L.A. They had a scenario where he was going to stay in Miami or go to Cleveland. I have no idea what this means, but just because Nike does a marketing campaign doesn’t mean that Kevin briefing them on his plan.”
Durant becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer once he declines his 2019-20 player option with the Warriors. The two-time Finals MVP has been linked to signing with the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers if he chooses to leave the Dubs.
