Kevin Durant on free agency: ‘I haven’t even thought of it’
Thunder star Kevin Durant was not looking toward the future after the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Golden State Warriors 96–88 in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.
Durant was asked after the game about his future with the team.
“I mean, we just lost like 30 minutes ago, so I haven’t even thought about it. I’m just embracing my teammates and just reflecting on the season,” Durant said. “I’ll think about that stuff, I don’t know when. But we just lost an hour ago, 30 minutes ago, so I don’t know.”
Durant, 27, will be a free agent on July 1 and has been a rumored target of several teams. There was much speculation that he would be interested in playing for his hometown Wizards but Yahoo’s Chris Mannix reported in April that he “isn’t all that keen” on playing in Washington.
Durant was the No. 2 pick in the 2007 draft by the SuperSonics and played one season in Seattle before the team moved to Oklahoma City. He has won four NBA scoring titles in his nine-year career and is a five-time first-team All-NBA selection.
