Kevin Durant will enter free agency this summer after he signed a short-term deal with the Golden State Warriors last summer but is yet to give an indication as to whether he will remain with the reigning back-to-back champions or look for pastures new.

The Warriors are favored to win their third straight title in 2019 but they have not been as dominant in the regular season with Steve Kerr’s team suffering 20 losses, which is the third best record in the NBA behind the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors.

Kerr’s biggest loss since he took over at the Oracle Arena came Tuesday night when the Boston Celtics beat them 128-95 and the head coach was not in a good mood during his press conference. He labeled the performance “embarrassing” and admitted that the “passion and anger” was missing from his team.

But Durant seemed to take a swipe at his coach when he disagreed with Kerr’s assessment after the game. He believes everyone in the franchise, the “coaches and players” need to do better going forward.

“I thought we move off of joy?” Durant asked during his post-game press conference, as quoted on Yahoo Sports. “Now it’s anger? OK. I disagree with that one. I think all around, top to bottom, coaches, players, we just gotta be better.”

NBA expert Chris Haynes reported that the Warriors small forward seemed to be in a mood to attack “from the moment he took his seat”. It is also being claimed that many inside the organization feel Durant already has one foot out of the door, but others are choosing to ignore it.

Durant was linked with a move to the New York Knicks in the summer after they made cap space for two free agents by trading Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks earlier in the year. And multiple reports claimed Kyrie Irving will be the other player joining the Warriors forward in the Big Apple.

But ESPN’s Brian Windhorst has thrown another possibility by claiming that Durant joining Irving in Boston is also "not impossible". The Celtics have made Anthony Davis their priority in the summer but the NBA expert claims that a failed move for the New Orleans Pelicans forward could turn them toward the two-time NBA Finals MVP.

“It’s not impossible for the Celtics to get their hands on Kevin Durant this offseason," Windhorst said on ESPN's The Jump on Tuesday before the Warriors lost to the Celtics. "I’m not saying I think it’s gonna happen, I’m just saying it’s not impossible."
