NBA Rumors: Draymond Green Flew to New York, Planned to Visit Kevin Durant

It sounds like Draymond Green might have spent Father's Day in New York.

The Warriors forward flew from San Francisco to the Big Apple this weekend and had plans to visit with Kevin Durant, an NBA source told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

"It's his friend,'' the source told The Post. "KD doesn't have to be recruited by Draymond after being there three years.''

Last Wednesday, Durant underwent surgery on his ruptured right Achilles tendon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Martin O'Malley, who also performed the bone graft surgery on the two-time NBA Finals MVP's right foot back in March 2015. 

Despite their highly publicized verbal confrontation back in mid-November, KD and Draymond remain close and will still be friends even if they are not teammates next season.

Durant will become an unrestricted free agent in less than two weeks and can negotiate with other teams (including the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets) starting at 3 p.m. PT on Sunday, June 30.

Draymond is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2020 but is eligible to sign an extension (worth a maximum of about $100 million over four seasons) with the Warriors this summer.
