Sports Betting Dime put up Kevin Durant recruitment stands in various parts of New York City, including Madison Square Garden, Bryant Park, Union Square and some subway stations.

Durant is expected to decline his player option with the Golden State Warriors to become a free agent on June 30. However, a ruptured Achilles injury he suffered during the NBA Finals might complicate things.

It’s unclear how long Durant would be out for, but he certainly won’t be healthy in time to start the 2019 season.
