A constant meeting with the Nets is of particular importance, as Kyrie Irving, who is expecting this, reportedly "urges" KD to join him. The nets have also contacted DeAndre Jordan – a close friend of Durant – to make the interaction with Irving tempting for the two-time final MVP, as Marc Stein of The New York Times explains.

When Kemba Walker signs with the free agency Celtics, Terry Rozier could bring his talents to New York.
Rozier and the Knicks have a common interest Marc Berman of the New York Post reported Friday that the point guard will become an unrestricted free agent on a one-year or two-year contract. If Walker encounters the Cs as expected, Boston would probably forego Rozier's rights and let it happen.
Berman also states that the Knicks have a "minimal interest" in Rozier as a limited free agent, as they would need space for it while the C's match a bid sheet. As of Friday, however, the Celtics Rozier have not submitted a qualifying offer.
Rozier has made clear that he has no desire to continue to play in a bankroll. The 25-year-old took a step back last season and played an average of nine points per game in the shadow of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.
