Report: Kevin Durant to meet with prospective teams in L.A.
Kevin Durant plans to meet with prospective teams in Los Angeles when free agency begins in July, reports Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.
Isola reports Durant’s preference is to re-sign with the Thunder, where he has played for eight seasons of his nine-year NBA career. However, if he chooses to depart from Oklahoma City, he is most interested in signing with the Golden State Warriors, Isola reports.
The Warriors have made Durant their top free-agency target, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Other teams that are reportedly interested in acquiring Durant are the Spurs, Celtics, Wizards, Knicks and Rockets. Durant has reportedly already ruled out signing with the Rockets.
Durant, 27, is a seven-time All Star and has averaged 27.4 points per game over his professional career. He has won NBA MVP once, following the 2013–14 season.
