Knicks To Offer ‘Whatever’ To Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant
Will KD and Kyrie be the new duo in New York?
The New York Knicks are ready to go all in for the this summer’s top free agents Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The Knicks have not had a winning season for years now and they feel this summer is the time they have to finally turn things around.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported on First Take, that Knicks’ owner James Dolan is reportedly willing to write whatever on a blank check to get the two superstars to Madison Square Garden.
Smith stated the following, “From everything that I’ve been hearing over the last few days, Kyrie Irving is heading to New York City. Kyrie Irving is headed to Madison Square Garden with Kevin Durant. People in his inner circle are trying to bring the Nets into the mix, but clearly, New York is the destination. The likelihood is that it will be MSG and obviously, Max [Kellerman], and I will admit, I’m saying this for your entertainment, Max Kellerman, because I know it’s going to get you going after I say this. I am told that James Dolan himself has basically said: ‘Whatever the hell you want. I will move the hell out of the way. I will give you whatever you want. It doesn’t matter. I’ll take care of you,’ to the Kyries and the Kevin Durants of the world.”
Although signing the two marquee superstars is their top priority, unfortunately it probably will not put them into title contention talks. We will have to wait for July 1st to see what moves the Knicks, Durant, and Irving make.
