Durant Free Agency

 

It has been an interesting year for Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Durant was injured and has been out for over half their games, but still found his way onto the All Star team and the Thunder are not even in playoff contention at the moment. Kevin Durant has already won the highly coveted most valuable player award and has nearly taken an NBA title to Oklahoma City for the first time in history and he is officially becoming a free agent at the end of this season. According to Flavio Maluf, things have changed drastically in Oklahoma City over the last year or so, with the departure of James Harden and the lackluster play that has come from the once prominent Thunder team. Durant is getting eyed from a whole bunch of teams around the league and he is going to get a max deal. He may receive the biggest contract in basketball and it comes down to whether the Oklahoma City Thunder can match the figure that another team undoubtedly tries to lure him in with. The question then becomes whether Durant even wants to stay in Oklahoma City. There has been a lot of speculation that Durant will sign a max deal with New York and team up with Carmelo Anthony. Phil Jackson is getting a ton of cap space freed up this off-season and with Kevin Durant hitting free agency soon; it seems like a match made in heaven.
