ANKARA (AA) - Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant has declined his $31.5M player option, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski announced on Wednesday.
Durant, 30, will become an unrestricted free agent on June 30.
“Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has declined his $31.5M player option and will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources tell ESPN. Durant and his business manager Rich Kleiman are in New York, evaluating free agency options. So far, process has stayed private,’’ said Wojnarowski on Twitter.
Durant will miss next season due to Achilles injury.
He underwent a successful surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, which he sustained during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The 10-time NBA All-Star played with 27.0 points on 49.3 percent shooting and 7.1 rebounds per game during his career, winning back-to-back Finals MVP awards in 2017 and in 2018.
