Kevin Durant (Achilles) reportedly declines Warriors' option

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (Achilles) declined his $31.5 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

What It Means:

This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Durant is expected to court long-term, max-level offers from other teams. The Brooklyn Nets are reportedly prepared to offer Durant a 4-year, max deal. Free agency begins on Sunday, June 30.

Durant averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 0.7 steals, 1.1 blocks, and 1.8 3-pointers in 78 games last season.
