Last month a report came out that suggested Kevin Durant would consider the New York Knicks as a landing spot if he were to leave the OKC Thunder in free agency next summer. However, Stephen A. Smith of ESPN is now reporting that KD’s preferred destination if he does leave OKC is actually the Los Angeles Lakers. Via LBS:
“Regardless of how senseless it may (sound), in one breath I’m hearing that if Kevin Durant doesn’t stay in Oklahoma City, L.A. is his primary objective and landing spot as opposed to South Beach or even his home of Washington, D.C.,” Smith said.
“I heard Melo, Kevin Durant, Kobe,” Smith added. “And when you take into account that Phil Jackson is on the record saying it might be Kobe’s last year in L.A. — opening the door that there are possibilities for him to go elsewhere. All I’m saying is you just never know.”
Smith reported this on ESPN First Take yesterday. Check out the video below.
