It’s not even July yet and the Kevin Durant rumors are running wild! Durant is going to be the hottest item in free agency, this summer, as each team tries to take a stab and landing the young super star.
Marc Stein reports that Durant is expected to take a handful of face-to-face meetings with a select group of interested teams, but two teams stand out as the front runners, right now:
Durant also is widely expected to take a handful of face-to-face recruiting meetings with a select group of interested teams, with the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs regarded by many rival executives as the two biggest threats to lure Durant away from the Thunder.
If either the San Antonio Spurs or the Golden State Warriors are able to land Durant, most of the NBA fans will be disgusted at the power shift that will take place. These two teams are already extremely elite, but adding Durant would just be over kill.
Whether or not you want to see that happen, it looks like Durant is looking to win, right now. If he chooses to stay on the Oklahoma City Thunder he still has a good chance of doing that, but joining the Spurs or Warriors, he would be on a team as a clear favorite.
