Thunder general manager Sam Presti said he had a “pretty good indication” that Kevin Durant was leaving the team before Durant made his announcement about joining the Golden State Warriors on Monday.
“When you do this long enough, I would say this: I would say we have means known and unknown to try to understand and interpret where things probably are headed, and so we had a pretty good indication, I think, that this was a potential outcome,” he said. Presti said Durant called him to inform him of his decision before it was posted on The Players’ Tribune.
