Just last season, Kevin Durant showed no signs of moving on from the Brooklyn Nets anytime soon. After inking a multi-year contract with Brooklyn following a stint with the Golden State Warriors, Durant decided to re-up with an extension last offseason. But in today's NBA, an extension doesn't ensure a player will be happy until it expires.
Beverley accused ESPN of hating on him. Patrick Beverley’s status as a top free agent after this season is, to be fair to ESPN, somewhat questionable. Although he always brings the defensive intensity and has a lot of playoff experience, he is entering his age-35 season.
Last season, he averaged 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in 20 games for the Mavs and 76ers. In 2015, he was the sixth overall pick in the NBA Draft by the Kings, and he spent the first four seasons of his career with Sacramento. In 2018, he averaged a career-high 12.8 points per game (he also grabbed 7.0 rebounds per game).
