Clippers Out Of Durant Race

The Clippers have been informed that Kevin Durant will not be joining the team, tweets Ben Bolch of The Los Angeles Times. That brings the list of suitors down to four franchises — the Warriors, Celtics, Spurs and Heat — who are trying to pry him away from the Thunder.

L.A.’s contingent met with Durant on Friday and he was reportedly “blown away” by their presentation. However, the Clippers used up a large amount of their cap room Saturday night, possibly already knowing Durant was beyond their reach, by giving a three-year, $35.7MM deal to Austin Rivers.

Durant has been meeting with interested teams all weekend and plans to make a decision today or Monday.

      • He’s a Sixers fan. He can’t watch them (unless he wants to watch them lose) so he has nothing else to do but bash the Celtics.

    Doc knows that you take care of family first, never mind about signing superstars. Austin Rivers getting 12 mil a year? Sheesh, have to cry nepotism on that one.

    • Jeremy Lin got $13 mil per, and both have very similar skill sets. Austin is actually one of the better backup point guards in the league but everyone’s judgment is clouded by the fact that he plays for his dad.
