Cunningham, 30, had been one of the more attractive free agents remaining, receiving interest from New Orleans, Minnesota, Milwaukee and Toronto, league sources said. Cunningham’s agent, Joel Bell, worked with the Pelicans’ front office to finalize an agreement Tuesday.
Durant is a pretty prolific Twitter user and was on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2017 to give a short explanation of what happened. Durant said he uses Twitter to primarily connect with his fans, but sometimes it seems it’s easy to get carried away. We’re just going to put his full response here because it’s better to just let him say it in his own words: “I use Twitter to engage with the fans. I think it’s a great way to engage with bb fans. But I happened to take it a little too far, that’s what happens sometimes when I get into these basketball debates. What I really love is to just play basketball, and I went a little too far. I don’t regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter. I do regret using my former coach’s name, and my former organization that I played for. That was childish, that was idiotic, all those type of words. I regret doing that, and I apologized to them for doing that.”
Durant: “I don’t think I ever stop engaging with my fans. I think they really enjoy it, and I think it’s a good way to connect us all. But, I will scale back a little bit right now, just focus on playing basketball. So, I want to move on from that. It was tough to deal with yesterday, I was really upset with myself. But I definitely want to move on and keep playing basketball. But I still want to interract with my fans as well.”
