Knicks fans are hoping for a very productive offseason, and landing Kevin Durant is one of their top priorities. But does Durant even want to play in New York?
Based on an old video, it doesn't look like it.
A video from two years ago surfaced on Friday with Durant telling someone "Never" when asked when he was playing for the Knicks.

Now, this was from two years ago, so it may not be anything to look into. However, the fact that Durant did answer this way and has a player option to hit free agency in the first place is worth noting.
There is also the report that came from Chris Broussard earlier this month that said Durant, along with Kyrie Irving, were "leaning away" from going to the Knicks in free agency.
Take it as you want, but with free agent circling Durant all season long, videos like this surfacing begin to stir the pot. And rightfully so.
