Perhaps the premier free agent in this year's class, superstar Kevin Durant is set to hit the open market again. Although an Achilles injury means he probably won't be able to see the floor at all in 2019-20, that shouldn't stop teams from pursuing the former MVP. Here are four possible destinations for KD this offseason.
4. Oklahoma City Thunder
Grab your popcorn, ladies and gentlemen. A Durant reunion in Oklahoma City would make the Thunder a favorite in the West in 2020-21, and would see him reunite with Russell Westbrook. Perhaps the pair of them, alongside Paul George, could win a championship and erase the nightmares of the 2016 playoffs.
3. Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers already have the best player on the planet in LeBron James, and they recently added one of the best big men in the league in Anthony Davis. Could that be enough to lure KD to Staples? If he decided to don the Purple and Gold, he would make the Lakers instant contenders as soon as he was healthy enough to step onto the floor.
2. New York Knicks
Knicks fans' hopes are much higher this year than they have in seasons past, and with a ton of cap space fans have every right to be excited. They've already lost out on a top-2 pick, meaning the Knicks are going to be even more aggressive when free agency hits, possibly leading them to sign Durant. He's long since been linked to the Big Apple, and Knicks fans are hopeful they can secure a deal.
1. Golden State Warriors
Before Durant suffered his injury, the Warriors probably wouldn't be in the top spot. However, with Golden State able to offer him the most amount of money and the favorable idea of having long-term financial security while rehabbing a serious injury, Durant might choose to stay with the Dubs for the sake of his future. Who knows if KD will be even a shell of his former self when he returns, but for the Warriors, it could be worth the gamble.
