Rumor: Kevin Durant likely to opt-out of contract despite injury

Bob Myers Kevin Durant Warriors

Golden State Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers became emotional talking about Kevin Durant's injury he suffered during Game 5 against the Toronto Raptors, saying it was an Achilles injury.

A source told The Post's Marc Berman that Durant was in NY for the surgery.

But, if nothing else, he has a $31.5 million player option for next season on his Warriors contract.

"It's just the way things go in this game and I'm proud that I gave it all I physically could, and I'm proud my brothers got the W", Durant said of the Warriors.

Sidelined by a calf injury since the second round of the post-season, Durant made his long-awaited return to the Golden State lineup on Monday for a must win Game Five of the NBA Finals only to go down suddenly in the opening minutes of the second quarter with a suspected Achilles injury. Because if he opts out of the contract, and even if he does a short deal with another team - a two-year deal - that starts at $38 million.

Ultimately, it all comes down to what Durant - who will turn 32 years old (Sept. 29) just before the 2020-21 season begins - wants to do.

Wojnarowski added that he would be "shocked" if the Warriors were not still willing to sign Durant to a long-term extension, which makes opting into the final year of his current deal even less likely. "Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY", Durant said.

He said Durant was also "misunderstood" and a great teammate and person. "A lot has changed on the Kevin Durant free-agency landscape but not the Knicks" interest in signing him, according to people familiar with the club's plans.

The results of Durant's MRI on his Achilles have yet to be released.
