  • Video: Draymond Green Reminded That Kevin Durant Will Be A Free Agent During Argument In Warriors' Loss To Clippers

While the Warriors returned to the bench for the break in between periods, an argument began between Durant and Green. Green failed to get a shot off before the final buzzer.

Kevin Durant drops a massive hint about his National Basketball Association future to teammates. Tempers flared and the two argued in the huddle with Green supposedly calling Durant names.

According to some publications, Durant has well and truly made up his mind for next season, determined to leave the stacked Warriors roster and chase more scoring opportunities elsewhere.

And while this situation has the potential to simmer, odds are Warriors players will be laughing about it sooner than later while continuing to rack up wins.

He told RT that the "angle-of-attack" sensor and the computerized system it feeds are "helpful but not essential to safe flight". But the aircraft descended nonetheless, and pilots were unable to recover.

On Tuesday night, shortly after Kevin Durant stepped to the podium and kept it brief, Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic dropped a powerhouse of a piece on the simmering drama enveloping the NBA's preeminent superpower.

No one had to be separated, no player left his seat and no hint of physicality loomed in the setting, sources said.

While no player is mentioned by name, it's going to be easy for people to make the connection to Green.

"I was just focused on the game", Durant said. But after the altercation had wrapped up, it was brought to light by The Athletic's Shams Charania that Green "challenged Kevin Durant" about his impending free agency while on the court. It's widely expected that Durant will decline the $31.5 million option and once again become a free agent, but the chances of a third deal have apparently grown slimmer. By suspending Green, the Warriors picked a side, meaning Green may have soured on coming back. Steve Kerr did not get into specifics, and Durant deflected questions after the game.
