The Knicks' dream lineup in 2019-20 that they hope will feature Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could be a pipe dream -- at least according to one NBA analyst.
According to Chris Broussard, Durant and Irving are "leaning away" from going to the Knicks when they hit free agency after the season.
While rumors swirl about Durant's potential desire to join the Knicks and people analyze each word that comes out of Irving's mouth and each facial expression he makes during a Celtics loss, the Broussard statement on Wednesday is the only one that suggests the two stars are not keen on New York.
If the Knicks strike out on both Durant and Irving (and don't wind up with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, which would be Zion Williamson), their decision to trade Kristaps Porzingis in order to open up two max slots will look quite foolish.
But the whispers about Durant and Irving having interest in teaming up on the Knicks have been much louder than anything leaking out about them not desiring New York.
With less than four months to go until free agency, we'll just have to keep waiting to see who's right.
