Kevin Durant Has Reportedly Eliminated The Clippers From His Free Agency Decision

One team has been eliminated from the Kevin Durant chase. 

Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the former NBA MVP has told the Los Angeles Clippers that he won't be signing with them. 

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as the Clippers signed Austin Rivers to a $35 million contract late Saturday night.

The Clippers were one of five teams to meet with Durant.

The former Texas Longhorn met with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, the Warriors and the Clippers on Friday and the Celtics and the Spurs on Saturday. He's set to meet with the Heat today and could potentially meet with the Thunder one more time before making his decision. 

ESPN's Chris Broussard reports that Durant intends to make his decision by late this evening or early Monday morning. 

It is believed Durant will be signing a two-year deal with a one-year opt-out so he can be a free agent next summer when the salary cap rises once again.
