This summer represents a milestone moment for the young agency: NBA star Kevin Durant becomes a free agent July 1, the biggest chance yet for Roc Nation to show it’s more than flash and bravado. While basketball observers increasingly feel Durant might be sticking around Oklahoma City for at least the short term, the folks around Roc Nation are giving away few secrets about what kind of contract might be in store. “We know this is a big deal and a big moment in his career,” said Rich Kleiman, Durant’s agent with Roc Nation, who worked with hip-hop stars such as Wale in a past professional life. “We also have to be his guiding light in this. We can’t let the pressure of the situation be bigger than it is. Obviously, we understand all eyes are looking at him and looking at his decisions, and people want to see how we’re going to handle it, too.”

No, they’re not. Down 3-2 and still facing the toughest of tasks, they’re headed to Oklahoma City for Game 6 on Saturday.
“He’s pretty good, but he doesn’t guard the other best point guards,” Durant said after Curry had five steals in the Golden State Warriors’ series-extending 120-111 Game 5 victory over the Thunder. “I think they do a good job of putting a couple of guys on Russell from [Klay] Thompson to [Andre] Iguodala, and Steph, they throw him in there sometimes. He moves his feet pretty well. He’s good with his hands.
