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.
