Rumor: Kevin Durant more likely to leave Golden State if Warriors win another title
Golden State Warriors superstar small forward Kevin Durant is reportedly more likely to leave the Dubs if they win their third straight title this season as opposed to if they are surprisingly beaten in the Finals or in the Western Conference playoffs, according to Robert Littal of BSO.
Kevin Durant can become an unrestricted free agent this summer if he declines his 2019-20 player option with the Warriors, something he is widely expected to do.
Since joining Golden State back in 2016, KD has won two straight Finals MVPs.
I have some Kevin Durant speculation if you like to hear it which I thought was interesting.
Was told at All-Star it is much more likely that KD leaves if the Warriors win another other title as opposed to if they are beaten at some point in playoffs or Finals.

This makes a lot of sense. Durant signed with the Warriors because he knew he could win titles with the Dubs. Now that he has two rings and is most likely going to get his third this season, Durant has accomplished what he set out to do when he came to Golden State and can embark on a new challenge after this season.
