Golden State Warriors superstar small forward Kevin Durant tells Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports he buried the hatchet with Draymond Green right away after Green yelled at him and called him out about his free agency.
Last Monday at Staples Center against the LA Clippers, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant got into a heated argument on the bench, and it carried over to the postgame locker room. Green reportedly called Durant a “bit**” multiple times and challenged KD about his impending free agency.
“At that second. I was upset, but I know I can't hold onto something like this You know what I'm saying? I know I have to make a choice myself, like, how long are you going to be upset about this?”

Both Kevin Durant and Draymond Green have patched things up and are ready to move on. The Warriors are confident that once superstar point guard Stephen Curry returns from his adductor injury, they’ll find their rhythm and be the best team in the league again.
Many believe Green calling Durant out will impact KD's upcoming free agency. Durant can become an unrestricted free agent after the season ends if he declines his 2019-20 player-option with the Warriors. Durant, however, says the Green incident won't affect his summer decision.
