Taking a page from LeBron James' book, perhaps?

Kevin Durant is the top player in the 2019 NBA Free Agent class, and he's expected to announce his next team on Sunday night via his own sports business channel on Instagram, according to the latest reports.

For those unfamiliar, James reported his own free-agent decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers via a press release from Klutch Sports, a surprising move that came out of nowhere considering we thought the process would be a bit more drawn out.

By keeping his choice close to the vest, Durant controls the narrative and can get a step ahead of the tabloids, assuming no NBA reporter receives a leak beforehand.

Durant's decision is expected to come down to the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks. The Warriors, or course, can offer KD $50 million more than any other suitor as they own his Bird rights.

Still, this is very KD. Considering the many jokes surrounding his social media usage, he's very much steering into the skid by revealing his next team in an ironic, yet self-sufficient way.
