Several teams — including the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington Wizards, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets — have already set up their salary structure to make a run at Durant next summer, when the league will be overwhelmed by significant increase in the cap. And Durant has been constantly pestered by fans, reporters and even associates about his future plans. “I hear it all the time, don’t get me wrong, and once you hear it you’re kind of like,” Durant said, looking up and thinking. “But for me, I love staying in the moment, and I’m one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career.” Washington Post

Not only did the Washington Wizards pull off a double-overtime win against the Charlotte Hornets Friday night, they also made the dreams of Nitin Ramachandran come true. Ramachandran, who is battling a rare form of brain cancer, signed a one-day contract with the Wizards through an arrangement with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. CBSSports.com

But the Wizards have an almost uniquely sad regional map. There are more Wizards Twitter followers than for any other team in just three areas: Montgomery County in Maryland, Fairfax County in Virginia, and Alexandria. What does that leave out? Well, the District of Columbia, where the Lakers lead the way. Also Prince George’s County, the team’s former home, where the Wizards finish third in Twitter followers, behind the Lakers and Heat. Also Arlington, where the Wizards are behind the Lakers, Bulls and Heat. That’s three teams! Washington Post

Murry, 25, appeared in three games for the Wizards and there were discussions about signing him for next season, according to sources. But the guard sprained his ankle one day after signing his second 10-day contract, tweaking it in the fourth quarter of Monday’s loss to the Golden State Warriors. Washington Post

It was not the first time the Warriors, featuring the NBA’s premier defense and best record, had suffocated an offense with such mercilessness. It wasn’t even the first time in the past month; the Toronto Raptors, another plunging Eastern Conference club, shot 1 of 19 from the field in the first quarter of their 113-89 debacle in Canada on Feb. 27. But there was a difference: According to Warriors backup center Marreese Speights, Golden State suspected the Wizards would fold. “We just turned [it] up a little,” Speights said. “We knew if we hit them, if we got a couple stops, they would start arguing with each other and quit. We went out there with a good mind-set in the second half and we did it.” Washington Post
