But the precise setting for Durant’s meetings with his coveters has remained undisclosed until now. It all happened at 189 Further Lane, a five-bedroom, 7,400-square-foot estate one block from the Atlantic Ocean. If a Warriors fan who truly appreciates the significance of what happened on this property would like to own it as the ultimate souvenir, it’s on the market for just under $15 million. Further Lane is not just any road in the Hamptons. Behind hedges dense and tall, its homes have long sheltered a mix of posh and artsy. Jerry Seinfeld, Jann Wenner and Larry Gagosian have or have had homes down the street that way. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s childhood summer retreat, Lasata, is up the road the other way. “As soon as Rich started walking towards the house, he was elbowing me,” Gallanti said, referring to Durant’s manager, Rich Kleiman. “He was like, ‘This is the house.’” Durant paid $100,000 for the 10-day rental.

Adam Johnson: After being waived by the Bulls earlier this week, Antonius Cleveland has signed a G League contract according to a league source. His rights are with the Santa Cruz Warriors. A nice addition after losing Tyler Ulis to a two-way to the same Bulls.
The Detroit Pistons used their opening night at Little Caesars Arena to pay a final tribute to a fallen legend. Before the player introductions for Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, public address announcer John Mason introduced Pistons legend Isiah Thomas. The Basketball Hall of Famer stood by a microphone and read a statement about Aretha Franklin, the legendary singer from metro Detroit who died this summer.
“The Detroit Pistons family and I were deeply saddened by the recent passing of a true Detroit icon. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, was a shining symbol of this great city. She represented us all with dignity, style, grace and beauty,” Thomas said. After Thomas was finished, all but one spotlight shone on center court, with one microphone and stand. Then, a recording of Franklin’s national anthem played at LCA as the Fox Sports Detroit telecast showed a video montage.
