Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has repeatedly said he is happy with the team, but there has been rampant speculation that the three-time scoring champ might bolt for greener pastures after his current contract is done.

Durant signed with Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports in June after a season in which he was second in the NBA in scoring average (28.1). He also added 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while shooting 51 percent from the field.

According to Daily Thunder, during a recent Nike-sponsored Tour de Durant through France, Durant was asked about his future in Oklahoma City.

“I like where I’m at right now. I enjoy playing for OKC,” he said. “As of today, I love it there, man. I want to be there. I love the fans, I love my team, I love everything about the city. I don’t have any plans to move.”
