Ric Bucher, the longtime NBA scribe, pundit and reporter, and the new Insider for Radio.com Sports had a *lot* to say about Kevin Durant and his looming free agency when he joined “Big Time Basketball” on Friday.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Here’s how he broke it down to Brian Scalabrine and Matt Steinmetz...

“What I’ve heard, through various places, is that he’s not really happy with how things went down because of the injury,” Bucher explained.

“There’s an element of, ‘Was I misled as far as injuring myself coming back and playing and having a catastrophic injury like this coming off a calf strain.”

“We don’t know, definitively, exactly what was said, how much was said, how much he was aware of that, but I can tell you that people in the KD camp, people are running for cover because they don’t want to be holding the bag on who led him astray.”

“Because the bottomline is, what Steve Kerr said, ‘We didn’t think he could get injured worse.’ If Steve Kerr was told that, I’m sure KD was told that. And now he’s looking at the prospect of not playing for, possibly, a year and having his free agency upended. I don’t see how that makes him happier with the Warriors than he was before.”
