Did Nike release Kevin Durant shirt hinting at free agency decision?
One Twitter user seems to think so:
Nike has this @KDTrey5 shirt on the site that has all the Teams/Cities KD has played for. The last 2 are Oakland & San Francisco. GSW last season in Oakland is this season. Next season they are in SF. Did @Nike confirm KD back to Warriors? #NBAFinals #Warriors #NBA pic.twitter.com/SsdX2iTlKd

As we all know, Durant becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer once he declines his 2019-20 player option with the Warriors. The Dubs are moving to the Chase Center next season, which will be in downtown San Francisco. The KD shirt has San Francisco under Oakland, where the team currently plays.
Of course, this could mean nothing, but it’s definitely noteworthy. All season long, Durant has been linked to signing with the New York Knicks with Boston Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving. However, with the Warriors playing in their fifth straight Finals and KD watching on TV just like the rest of us due to his right calf injury, the two-time Finals MVP could be seeing what life without the Warriors would be like.
After all, how can you leave the Dubs when you’re watching Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala play so well? Does KD really want to leave Golden State to play in New York when the Knicks have been a walking disaster for years? It’s surely something Durant and his camp have talked about.
