Kevin Durant is the hottest player in the 2016 free agent market with NBA rumors confirmed that he will listen to other teams’ offers this summer and will host them in his home in Los Angeles. KD will also reportedly consider the Golden State Warriors in free agency especially after Stephen Curry and his team lost to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports that when free agency officially opens on July 1, Durant will start hearing proposals from NBA teams in Los Angeles, California, where he lives during the offseason.
In an interview while promoting his new shoe line, Durant did not specificu on his free agency plans but admitted that the big factor will be about signing with a winning team and a chance to win the NBA title.
Durant re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder is still the best prediction for many experts after the Thunder pushed the defending champions to seven games in the Western Conference Finals. However, that’s not stopping the NBA rumors from linking Durant to OKC’s rivals.
“I’m worried about basketball. That’s what it is for me. It’s a basketball decision. I’m looking forward to the future,” Durant said in a press conference.
Isola’s source also stated that if Durant leaves OKC this 2016 free agency, the team with the best shot at signing him are the Warriors, which already features the likes of Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
As expected, Kevin Durant has been linked by NBA rumors to almost all teams with salary cap space this summer. This includes the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington Wizards and even West powerhouse teams San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors.
