The Chances of Kevin Durant Coming to Dallas
The season ended for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, but the summer of Kevin Durant is just beginning.
With the second pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, the Seattle SuperSonics selected a young, skinny kid out of the University of Texas named Kevin Durant. Nine years later, the franchise has went to the Finals one time and just recently lost a seven game series where they were up 3-1 in the series.
Now all the focus shifts to the summer of Kevin Durant as one of the faces of the NBA hits unrestricted free agency.
When asked by a reporter last night after the crushing loss about his free agency, Durant simply pushed the question aside and said he hasn’t really thought about it yet. But we all know that simply isn’t true.
Is his time in OKC done? Can him and Russell Westbrook ever win a title together? Does he finally want a bigger market? Can he recover from this series collapse?
Durant enters the summer when the salary cap just happens to be increasing by around $20 million dollars across the league. With the majority of the league having room for a max contact player in free agency, the line for Durant’s services will be wrapping around the corner.
So what are the percentages that Durant could end up in Dallas?
Here is my stab at the percentages on my current Kevin Durant summer prediction…
