The Warriors’ last-ditch effort to keep Kevin Durant

This isn’t the full-court press that resulted in the Hamptons Five, but the Golden State Warriors will do what they can to try to keep Kevin Durant in the Bay Area.

With NBA free agency officially set to begin Sunday at 6 p.m., Steph Curry was heading to New York to meet with Durant, according to The Athletic. Bob Myers, the Warriors’ GM and president of basketball operations, was also expected to meet with Durant.

When Durant was a free agent in 2016, Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala all went to the Hamptons to pitch Durant on joining their championship-winning club.

This time, Curry will be the only player working in person to convince Durant that Golden State is the best place for him. Thompson, however, is expected to join the meeting via video chat, per The Athletic.

The Post reported earlier this month that Green flew from San Francisco to New York with plans to visit Durant.

Durant has been in New York since undergoing surgery on the ruptured Achilles he suffered during the NBA Finals. He’s expected to speak with the Knicks, Nets, Warriors and Clippers.
