I can’t see Kevin Durant leaving the Thunder for anything but an Eastern Conference contender, but that won’t stop every Western Conference opponent from pursuing the All-Star.
Former Thunder teammate and Rockets star James Harden, made it clear that the goal each offseason is to get better, and adding Durant would do such a thing.
“In order to put yourself as an elite team, you always got to have talent, right?” Harden told reporters, without directly mentioning Durant, lest he find himself on the wrong side of NBA anti-tampering rules. “You always got to get better and find ways to improve. That’s any team.”
Harden and Durant are close, but KD would simply be choosing the Rockets for income tax purposes only — but his current situation in Oklahoma City is vastly closer to a title than the Rockets will be any time sooner.Powered by Sidelines
