Warriors players recruited Kevin Durant throughout season

It apparently worked. Durant is reportedly leaning toward signing with the Warriors if he leaves the Thunder. It’s far from a done deal, and the formal meetings will give him more information about every team involved. But it seems Golden State has a nice head start.

Durant has named two primary factors in determining his next team: basketball and people. The Warriors have a great team on the court, and this indicates he already gets along with the people on the team. Other teams – especially Oklahoma City – might check both boxes. But, again, Golden State appears to be in good shape.

This is how free agency works now. The NBA essentially allows players to tamper, putting the onus on them to recruit in ways management can’t until July 1.

I just wonder how this went over in the Warriors’ locker room. While some players were actively recruiting Durant, Andrew Bogut said other Golden State players questioned the Durant pursuit. Those are probably players who’d be jettisoned to make room for Durant, so if he signs, the potential problem takes care of itself. But if Durant spurns the Warriors, they might have a tough time putting the pieces back together.
