Despite the results the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery, which saw the Knicks miss out on the chance to land Duke’s Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick, the Knicks could be getting some good news in the coming months.
If you believe Colin Cowherd’s source, that is.
Cowherd revealed on Tuesday’s edition of “The Herd” that he’s received information from a veteran NBA player he trusts, saying Kevin Durant would “100 percent” be joining the Knicks later this year.
He also mentioned that Durant has already been recruiting other star players to join him in the Big Apple.
“An NBA veteran player that’s very, very connected told me 15 minutes ago: KD to the Knicks is 100 percent done and he’s made calls to other players,” Cowherd said.

If true, this would mean a monumental shift in the NBA as one of the game’s best players is not only changing conferences, but fully redistributing power around the NBA.
Durant is currently sitting out the NBA Western Conference Finals with a strained calf. The Warriors took a 1-0 lead over the Portland Trailblazers following a 36-point, seven-assist, six-rebound performance by Stephen Curry, and 26-point, three-assist contribution from Klay Thompson in a 116-94 win, Tuesday night.
The Warriors are focused on attaining its fourth title in five years, but this could make the last postseason Durant dons a Warriors jersey if what Cowherd’s source says is true.
