The New York Knicks are ready to make an offer to Kevin Durant if he opts out of his $31.5M contract for next season.
The Knicks are expected to offer the maximum to KD even if he is going to miss the entire 2019-2020 with an achilles tendon injury.
Per SNY TV, Would the Knicks, who have enough cap space to sign two max free agents, be comfortable with that scenario? We’ll find out in a few weeks, but there are indeed some members of the organization who would consider offering Durant a contract this summer, per SNY sources. Durant is eligible for a four-year, $141 million max contract from New York or any other team looking to sign him away from the Warriors.
