Kevin Durant reveals his thoughts on new Warriors venue
He talked about what is more than likely going to happen next year when the team hits the floor. Nick Friedell of ESPN wrote the story.
“I’m thinking about a lot of points being scored,” Durant said as he walked around. “The fans are going to love it.”
During the tour of the new arena, a reporter asked Durant if he would commit long-term with the Warriors.
“What are we doing?” Durant said, while Warriors staffers tried to move the tour along. “What are we doing?”
Durant’s free agency will be a topic of conversation throughout the season. Speculation is running rampant of him possibly leaving Oakland next summer.
It also seems like the Warriors have been trying to get Durant to tour the new arena. It is possible that Golden State has already started the recruitment process. Warriors officials said they had been trying to set up a time for Durant to tour the new facility for months and were happy that his schedule aligned on Friday.
After the tour, Kevin Durant made some construction workers very happy, as he signed autographs and took pictures with them.
Before Durant left the site, he signed some autographs and took pictures with construction workers and dignitaries. A Warriors staff member had him sign his construction boots before Durant hopped into a waiting car.
Collins proudly carried the boots away from the site as the Warriors held on to the hope that Durant’s glimpse into the future would make the decision to stay in the Bay Area even easier next summer.
The free agency class next summer is going to be stacked from top to bottom, but Durant will be the leading player and headline throughout the process.
Where he goes next summer, whether he stays with the Golden State, or goes to another team, the landscape of the NBA will be changed forever.
