Kevin Durant is by far the best free agent on the market this summer.
Like every free agent, he says what matters most is winning and a good basketball environment. The difference is, since he’s a max contract guy wherever he lands, for KD it is true — he can make his decision for basketball reasons.
But where is he going to go that is closer to a ring than Oklahoma City?
I can think of $85 million reasons to sign a one-year deal with the Thunder, but the best one is OKC is the second best team in the NBA. Jump to the East now and that is far from guaranteed, a trip to the conference finals is almost assured but which of those teams is better suited to get him a ring than the Thunder?
I lay this all out for Jenna Corrado in the latest PBT Extra.
