Kevin Durant says NBA is better when players move in free agency
Having made one of the biggest splashes in NBA free agency history, Kevin Durant is now anxious to see what the 2018 free agent class will bring to the league for this upcoming season.
“I want to see that movement,” Kevin Durant told Sports Illustrated. “I think it will make the league better.”
Last season showed what teams around the league did to adjust to the competitive imbalance of the Golden State Warriors, who boasted a lineup with four All-Star players, cruising through the postseason to the tune of 16-1.
This time around, another major free agent will take precedent, as LeBron James has the option to opt out of his contract and explore the free agency waters, perhaps one last time in what is bound to be The Decision Part III.
The Rockets will still have to deal with the impending signing of Chris Paul after playing on borrowed time last season, this time seeking every last penny of his max contract to set him up for good.
DeMarcus Cousins will also be an unrestricted free agent, posing many questions, given the New Orleans Pelicans’ other assets that also await some security down the line.
The NBA will once again adjust to this dynasty in the making, with the goal of dethroning them at the top of the list.
