(KRON) The Warriors are going all in on their pitch for free agent Kevin Durant.

The Warrirors are meeting with KD Friday morning in the Hamptons. Basketball insiders are tweeting that Steve Kerr, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala are all in the meeting to bring Durant to Golden State.

The NBA has been anticipating Durant’s decision for more than a year, as rarely does such an accomplished player become a free agent in his prime. The 2014 MVP and four-time scoring champion led the Thunder to the NBA Finals in 2012, and to the Western Conference finals in four of the past six years — and he’s only 27. He recovered from a broken bone in his right foot that cost him much of last season to post one of the best years of his career.
