Big bucks have literally been tossed around on a historic scale this offseason, but the money headline of the 2016 NBA free agency has largely been the looming decision of Kevin Durant. Now, after seemingly endless speculation and numerous hours of meeting with his Oklahoma City Thunder, the Warriors, Celtics, Spurs, Heat, and Clippers, the Durant sweepstakes will provide an answer tomorrow and it’s a two-thoroughbred race.
From what I understand, it's Thunder versus Warriors for Durant.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) July 4, 2016
The former Longhorns’ free agency is arguably the most captivating and speculated in recent memory, considering the consensus of LeBron James’ 2014 free agency heavily pointed to him returning to Cleveland. With Durant, it’s been hard to truly gauge a favorite for one of the most lethal scorers on the planet. With Oklahoma City and the record-breaking Warriors – two of the most exciting teams in NBA history - now awaiting a final answer, what happens tomorrow will change the landscape of the NBA for the next handful of seasons.
Will Durant return to the city he’s called home for the past eight seasons with another as part of the franchise in Seattle, or join two of the most greatest shooters in history in the Bay Area in hopes of constructing the NBA’s next dynasty?
We find out tomorrow.
