After spending seven games guarding Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala showed his respect for the Oklahoma City Thunder star.
“He made some really tough shots, which is what I expected,” Iguodala said, according to The Mercury News. “He’s a fighter and competitor and fought to the end. It must be fun playing with a guy like that.”
With the Thunder’s season over after being eliminated by the Warriors in a 96–88 Game 7 loss on Tuesday night, talk of where Durant will land during his impending free agency has begun.
In his postgame press conference, Durant told reporters he hadn’t yet thought about free agency. Durant will officially become a free agent on July 1, and will reportedly be targeted by a number of teams, including the Wizards, Rockets and Heat.
He was linked to the Warriors earlier this year.
