Marc Stein: In Toronto with ESPN Radio, Kevin Durant addressed the possibility of signing a short-term contract this summer to, in essence, delay his free agency one year and put himself on the same track with teammate Russell Westbrook. “Actually that’s probably one of the first times I’ve heard that one, but, no , I haven’t really thought about it, man. I’m just, with [coming back from] injury and just getting back to playing again, I haven’t thought about contracts or free agency or none of that stuff at all. … I really haven’t thought about that one. I guess I have to.”
Storyline: Kevin Durant Free Agency
“I grew up in L.A. watching the Lakers on KCAL-9,” Westbrook told Yahoo Sports. “That was definitely the channel I had watching the Lakers. I’m a big fan of Kobe. He was somebody I could look up to and see all the great things he’s done. “That was definitely a big moment for myself as a player growing up in Los Angeles and being able to play against a guy I saw growing up on T.V. It was definitely a big battle. I just tried to take on the challenge and be fearless.”
