Kevin Durant’s Move

Kevin Durant’s Move

Overview

(CNN)The wait is over.

Kevin Durant — the biggest name in this summer’s NBA free agent class — has decided to sign with the Golden State Warriors and will leave the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The decision was announced Monday on The Players’ Tribune, a media platform used by athletes to tell their own stories.
The 27-year-old forward is listed as a “Deputy Publisher” for the website.
“This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life,” Durant said of his decision. “I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
