Kevin Durant Joins Players’ Tribune

The site's new deputy publisher.

Future New York Knicks star Kevin Durant has joined The Players’ Tribune, the athlete-only site founded by Derek Jeter.

Durant, who becomes a free agent next summer, will serve as the Tribune’s deputy publisher.

“In just eight years, Kevin has not only become a dominant force on the court but an important voice off it.” said Jeets, in an announcement. “We share the belief that athletes need a place to tell their stories their way. I’m thrilled that he’ll be helping me build that place.”

With Durant joining the Tribune, you can bet that he’ll announce his free agency decision on the site. He’s going to look great in orange and blue.
