Now, let me preface by saying this is nothing more than just another rumor. We've heard plenty, so take this for what it's worth. I will say that I was spot on about Gillespie going to Kentucky the moment the last buzzer sounded in the A&M-Memphis game, so I'm hoping that I keep my unblemished streak going this offseason :)
Anyway, a close friend of mine has a best friend who works under the communications director at UT. My friend managed to get her friend to cough up the news about Durant. Apparently, he's taken out a huge insurance policy in his legs (to the tune of $25 mil or so), and plans to stay at UT for another year. He of course wanted to make sure Barnes was going to stay before committing. Apparently an announcement can be expected sometime in the next week.
Like I said, take it for what it's worth. But I trust my source, and I'm sticking with it.
