ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reported earlier this season that Kevin Durant had the Lakers atop his wish list this season. When asked on the Mason and Ireland Show about the possibility that Durant and Westbrook could team up with the Lakers, he said the following as transcribed by Lakers Nation’s Ryan Ward via Examiner:
“It’s a big possibility. It’s a big possibility.”
Smith added that the possibility of teaming with Westbrook in Los Angeles is a big reason why he would come:
One of the biggest reasons I’m told, that Kevin Durant may have the Lakers at the top of his list, is because the Lakers have been led to believe, by whom specifically I do not know, but the Lakers have been led to believe that it is a very good chance that the following year Russell Westbrook is coming.”
