The Clippers plan to invite Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan to their meeting with free agent Kevin Durant, report ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Arash Markazi.

The Clippers want to pitch Durant on the idea of forming a “Big Four,” according to the report.

Durant, a four-time scoring champion and former MVP, is the most sought-after free agent on the market this off-season. The Clippers believe they can keep their biggest stars and add Durant as opposed to trading one of them away to create cap space.

The Clippers were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs this past season after Paul and Griffin sustained injuries during the postseason.

Durant averaged 28.2 points, 5 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game for the Thunder last season.

He will meet with the Clippers on Friday following meetings with the Thunder and Warriors. He will then meet with the Celtics and Heat.
