Kevin Durant Says He Hasn't Ruled Out Playing For This Team Later In His Career


Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant made headlines around the NBA world back in 2016 when he decided to sign with his current team, a squad who Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder actually lost to in the playoffs before KD made his shocking decision.

But on a recent podcast with the podfather Bill Simmons, Kevin said he hasn't ruled out making another change of scenery later on in his playing career.

That's right, KD has stated to the public that he wouldn't outright say no to a move to Seattle if the Supersonics ever got their team back.

Durant should have chosen his words more carefully, because a Seattle return to the NBA could be sooner than later according to Adam Silver.

The NBA Commissioner stated late-July that "...but it’s inevitable at some point we’ll start looking at growth of franchises. That’s always been the case in this league, and Seattle will no doubt be on a short list of cities we’ll look at.”

The 2014 MVP started his career in Seattle, playing there for one year before the team was uprooted and moved to OKC, where KD stayed until the 2017 NBA season. Durant started in 80 games for the Sonics, over 20 points a game for the franchise, leading to him running away with the Rookie of the Year award.

Regardless whether Kevin actually meant what he said, Seattle basketball fans must be excited to know they may have a chance to land Durant back on their team when they eventually return to the NBA.
