Kevin Durant shocked the NBA world during 2019 NBA free agency when he announced he was leaving the Golden State Warriors for the Brooklyn Nets earlier this month but is there more to the story? Reports have come out that Durant didn’t like the idea of a sign-and-trade for D’Angelo Russell and himself straight and so forced the Warriors to give up a 1st round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft to the Nets. What position does this leave the Warriors in for next year’s NBA Draft and what protections are on the pick so it may come back to Golden State? Steph Curry will be expected to carry the team for the 2019-2020 NBA season with Durant joining Kyrie Irving with the Nets and Klay Thompson still out with an Achilles injury. Has the past three years and two NBA Finals victories with Kevin Durant put him in the right mindset to do so? On this edition of Warriors Report, host Thomas Mott answers these questions and more as he breaks down the latest Golden State Warriors rumors and news.
