According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, the Warriors are a legitimate threat to land Kevin Durant this summer.
"There are people in Golden State who think they're getting him," Broussard said. "There are people in management and I think some players too. Kevin Durant likes the way they play. He likes their style, he likes the fact they play unselfishly. He sees himself fitting into that group." This report first gained steam when Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical said that the Warriors were "significant frontrunners" to sign him in free agency, so it shouldn't be completely dismissed. The Thunder's success in the postseason could be a pivotal factor in KD's decision. Feb 13 - 10:28 AM

Kevin Durant scored 23 points during a 121-95 win over the Pelicans on Thursday, adding three rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He dropped back down to third in scoring in a very odd game. This was his first game without a free throw attempt since 2012 and only his sixth game ever. Durant is obviously fine as a top-two option in fantasy leagues. Excluding his injury on Nov. 10, KD has scored 20 or more in every game.

Kevin Durant scored a game-high 32 points during a 122-106 win over the Suns on Monday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

He scored 25 in the second half and is a scoring machine in his last seven, averaging 34.4 points, 9.9 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.3 blocks, 0.9 steals and 3.3 treys on 50.3 percent from the field, 45.1 percent from deep and 92.8 percent from the line. KD is getting close to a 50/40/90 year again at 50.6 percent from the field, 39.4 percent from deep and 89.5 percent from the line. He's created some separation as fantasy's No. 2 player in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:19 AM

Kevin Durant scored 40 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Warriors during a 116-108 loss on Saturday.

The Thunder clawed back from an 18-point deficit to make this a game, but it just wasn't enough. As for KD, it's his third 40-point game on the year and he is tearing it up on offense right now. In his last 10, Durant averaged 32.1 points, 9.3 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 2.6 treys. He is up to 27.7 points per game and trails James Harden for second by just 0.1 points per game.
Feb 7 - 12:33 AM

Kevin Durant hit 27-foot game-winner during a 117-114 victory over the Magic on Wednesday, finishing with 37 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, three blocks and six 3-pointers.

KD is not nice. He gave Tobias Harris a dirty crossover to get free for the shot with 0.5 seconds left (video in link below). Durant is rolling in his last five, averaging 33.8 points, 9.8 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 3.0 treys on 50.5 percent from the field and 90.2 percent from the line. Yes, teams have interest in signing him this offseason.

The idea of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook signing with the Lakers as free agents is "almost laughable," according to sources of Basketball Insiders.

The initial KD and Westbrook to Los Angeles story was spawned by ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, who tends to favor sensationalism over journalism, and the reality is that if the pair would like to remain together they'd make more money by staying in OKC. Additionally, it wouldn't make sense for Durant to leave the Thunder in order to pursue a championship and then wind up going through a rebuild with the Lakers. For now, Los Angeles seems like a very unlikely destination for the Durantuala.

Kevin Durant went through a full practice on Tuesday without wearing any brace or sleeve on his right knee.

Durant wore a right knee brace during Monday's game, but he produced a standard stat stuffing line, and after going through a full practice on Tuesday there's nothing to be concerned about here. Move along.
Feb 2 - 4:37 PM

The Warriors have emerged as "significant frontrunners" to sign Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent if he decides to leave the Thunder this offseason, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski

In order for the Dubs to create the cap space for this move, they would need to trade away Andre Iguodala, stretch Andrew Bogut and Jason Thompson, and withdraw Harrison Barnes' qualifying offer. Durant is also by no means a lock to leave OKC this offseason, and another idea that has been floated around is him signing a two-year deal with the Thunder with a player option on the second-year, so that he would hit free agency with Russell Westbrook. This is obviously going to be a huge story this offseason, but for now, Durant is fantasy basketball's No. 2 overall option.

Kevin Durant wore a brace on his right knee during Monday's win over the Wizards, but the Thunder didn't elaborate on the reason.

Head coach Billy Donovan said reporters would have to ask Durant about the brace/sleeve that he wore on his right knee, but Durant left the locker room without talking to reporters. While he was seen icing the knee on the bench, KD didn't look any worse for the wear on the court en route to scoring 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting. We'll keep an eye out for updates, but it doesn't sound like this is anything fantasy owners should worry about just yet.

Kevin Durant scored 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting in Monday's win over the Wizards, adding nine boards, four assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was wearing a brace on his right knee tonight, but there is no report of an injury. For now, his owners shouldn't be concerned. KD looked great out there despite turning the ball over a game-high seven times, and he gets a pass for that since he has been the second best player in fantasy this season.
Feb 1 - 10:43 PM

Kevin Durant made 11-of-18 from the field and all nine free throws for 33 points against the Rockets during a 116-108 win on Friday, adding 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was cooling off a tad earlier this month, but he's rolling again. In his last four, Durant averaged 34.0 points, 11.3 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.3 treys on 51.2 percent from the field. He's putting up wonderful numbers on two-point shots and he's been the No. 2 player in January behind Stephen Curry.

The idea of Kevin Durant signing a one-year, opt-out deal with the Thunder as an unrestricted free agent this offseason has reportedly gained momentum.

If Durant goes that route, he'd not only become an unrestricted free agent at the same time that Russell Westbrook hits free agency, but he'd also set himself up for the most lucrative payday possible. It'll be interesting to see how the free agent market plays out for The Durantula this offseason, but for now, he's fantasy basketball's No. 2 overall player.

Kevin Durant went off for a season-high 44 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers, hitting 12-of-26 shots and 16-of-18 free throws in Tuesday's overtime win against the Knicks.

He hit the game-tying shot with 16 seconds left in regulation and then scored seven more in overtime to lead his team to the win. He still might be the best player in the game not named Stephen Curry and there's not much more to say. Just wind him up and watch him roll.

Kevin Durant piled up 32 points (11-of-22 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs), two 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block during Sunday's disappointing road loss.

OKC rolled into Brooklyn on a seven-game win streak but they couldn't get over the hump tonight, as the Nets finished with 58 points in the paint and only turned it over 11 times. The loss stings for the Thunder but it's irrelevant for Durant's fantasy owners, who enjoyed yet another pristine, multi-cat line.
Jan 24 - 10:24 PM

Kevin Durant put up his 30th consecutive 20+ point performance on Friday, compiling 24 points, seven assists, three boards, two 3-pointers, one block and three turnovers in 38 minutes.

Despite 49.5 percent of Durant’s shots attempts coming with his closest defender within 2-4 feet of him, he still owns an effective field goal percentage of 56.6 percent of those attempts, and he also leads the league in points per touch at 0.45. Simply put, he’s one of the best scorers to ever play the game, and at the mid-point of the season he ranks No. 2 overall in standard 8-cat and 9-cat leagues.
