Wojnarowski further elaborates on the meetings:
There is expected to be some combination of face-to-face meetings and communications by other means with Durant and his business manager, Rich Kleiman, front-office sources told ESPN.
Durant’s decision-making process could extend well into next week, league sources told ESPN.
Durant is expected to miss much of the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury suffered in the 2019 NBA Finals. He averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 5.9 assists for the Warriors last season.
