Kevin Durant: Going to Warriors 'best decision for me'
Monday August 8th, 2016

Kevin Durant’s first game in Oklahoma City since leaving the Thunder is scheduled for Feb. 11, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The schedule for the upcoming NBA season has yet to be finalized, but dates have been circulating among teams for the past week.

Durant spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Thunder franchise before leaving for the Warriors this summer. His return to Oklahoma City will have to wait until the fourth month of the season, though the Warriors should have plenty of marquee matchups scheduled before then.

The full NBA schedule will be released later this month. The regular season kicks off on Oct. 25.

Durant is currently playing alongside two of his Warriors teammates—Draymond Green and Klay Thompson—for Team USA at the Rio Olympics.
