On Tuesday's episode of First Take, Kellerman said he's "hearing increasingly" that Durant and Irving to the Knicks is a "real thing."
Rumors that the Knicks will sign Durant and Irving this summer have circulated since the team created enough cap space to sign two max players by trading Kristaps Porzingis in January.
B/R's Ric Bucher said last week on The Herd with Colin Cowherd that Durant to the Knicks is "done."

"From everything I've heard, it's done. Yes, he's leaving... If he so much as gets [the Knicks] into the Conference Finals, he will be beloved there like he never has been at Golden State after 2 Championships." @RicBucher on Kevin Durant's free agency https://t.co/eCHgKQxKTF
Per The Athletic's Frank Isola, one agent noted Durant and Irving are debating which one will sign with the Knicks first.
"Why is that important? The player that is signed second is viewed as the follower, not the leader," Isola wrote.
Durant and Irving have more pressing matters than free agency. Both players are trying to lead their current teams to an NBA championship.
Both have player options for 2019-20.
