PBT Extra: If Kevin Durant wants to win a title he should…

21 Comments

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.
