Golden State Warriors season didn’t end in a way they anticipated and it definitely didn’t come out as most fans and analysts thought it would at the beginning of the season. After adding DeMarcus Cousins to an existing team that already won two championships in a row, there were was a notion that they will win another NBA championship with ease. However, the Warriors lost to the Raptors after 6 games but that wasn’t the worst part because Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both got injured and are lost for the next season which creates a very tough situation for the team heading into the upcoming season.
Both Klay and Durant are becoming free agents this summer and even though there were indications Durant will sign with the Warriors this summer after losing in the NBA finals, there are now reports he is not happy with the Warriors management and is one foot away from leaving the team.
According to Ric Bucher from Bleacher report, Kevin Durant is mad at the Warriors organization and how they managed the entire situation after he re-injured himself in game 5 of the NBA finals.
“The indication from several league sources is that Durant is not happy with the team, and the presumption is that it stems from whatever role Warriors officials played in his decision to suit up.
Coach Steve Kerr says he was told Durant could not further injure himself by playing, which obviously proved not to be true. If Durant was told the same, it would give credence to the notion that, as one league executive claims, “He’s really pissed off at the Warriors.”
In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be able to see how this story unfolds and whether Kevin Durant and Warriors can negotiate a new contract or Durant will leave Bay Area and join the third team in his NBA career.
