Kevin Durant ‘100 Percent Undecided' on Free Agency Plans, Agent Says

Kevin Durant's future is up in the air on two fronts.

First, it's unclear at this point when the Warriors forward will return to game action because of a strained right calf.

Secondly, nobody knows which NBA team he will play for next season.

Apparently, KD doesn't even know yet.

On Tuesday evening, Durant's agent and manager, Rich Kleiman, was asked the following question at The Wall Street Journal's "Future of Everything Festival" in New York:

"This has not been decided? There is no hidden handshake agreement with the New York Knicks?"

"No, no, no. That is 100 percent undecided and I'm waiting on Kevin," Kleiman said. "That's the truth. There's a feeling that this thing is like war games and everybody is playing chess years out. 

"But when somebody gets to the level of basketball that he's at, you can't juggle focus like that. He's not scripting his future while he's playing the way he plays, or practices the way he practices.

"It's frustrating at times. I get it (though). I do get it. The soap opera of it all ... he really doesn't know and I really don't know."

On Monday night, the Warriors advanced to the NBA Finals for the fifth straight season by sweeping the Portland Trail Blazers. 

Will we see the reigning two-time NBA Finals MVP -- who hasn't played since Game 5 of Golden State's second-round series against the Rockets -- suit up on basketball's biggest stage?

"I don't know," Kleiman said. "I hope so. But again, when you have an injury that's real -- and it's a real injury -- he's gotta be Kevin Durant. He's got about the highest pain threshold of someone I know, so when he misses time, it means the injury is real. 

"I hope that we can see him next week or two weeks from now."

The Warriors are expected to provide an official update on KD's status this Thursday.
