HoopsHype Bilbao Basket rumors
Thunder forward Kevin Durant told Yahoo! Sports yesterday that he is weighing offers from Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel, Valencia in Spain and BBC Bayreuth in Germany. The Spanish team offered $475,000 per month weeks ago, but Durant wanted $675,000, as reported by TuBasket.com. Another Spanish squad, Bilbao Basket, considered pursuing Durant, one source told HoopsHype, but they have now ruled out that option. Durant’s favorite destination in Europe would be FC Barcelona, but the reigning ACB champions are not interested in the All-Star forward, the source said. HoopsHype
