Kevin Durant will announce his free agency decision Sunday night, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The decision will be announced on The Boardroom’s Instagram account, as per Wojnarowski.

It has previously been reported Durant would be meeting with four teams – the Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks – and, according to The New York Times‘ Marc Stein, the Warriors are prepared to offer Durant a five-year, $221-million contract as soon as the free agency window opens at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.

However, Stein also reports the Nets “sure seem to believe” Durant will be committing to make a move to Brooklyn when he makes his announcement, forming a trio with Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan.

Durant has spent the last three seasons in Golden State, helping the Warriors to back-to-back NBA titles (2017, 2018) and earning two NBA Finals MVPs in the process.

The 30-year-old superstar suffered a ruptured Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the eventual-champion Toronto Raptors, and an exact timetable for his return to the court is unknown.
