Kendrick Perkins says Kevin Durant talks about potential free agent destinations

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant has always claimed that he doesn’t think about his impending free agency, but most people saw right through that – and Kendrick Perkins has proven them right.

Perkins, a former teammate and good friend of Durant’s who now plays for New Orleans, was bombarded with questions by the Boston media over Durant’s possible destinations. While he was largely tight-lipped, he did divulge a few details.

“As a friend, I try not to talk to him too much about free agency,” Perkins said, via ESPN’s Chris Forsberg. “I always try to just want to talk to him about things outside of basketball. We talk about personal life and stuff like that. And I know he’s getting this question every day on the hour and stuff like that, so I try not to bother him.

“But he did shoot some teams out there that he made me sign a confidentiality form that I couldn’t tell nobody. He’s got a few teams that he will be looking at.”

I wonder if Perkins is kidding about that confidentiality agreement. Probably not. But Perk, will KD be considering the Celtics?

“You’re trying to get me to really answer the question,” Perkins said. “I can’t answer that. I want to, but I can’t. I mean, I don’t know. I do know, but I don’t know.”

Perkins did note that the Thunder’s playoff performance could have a big impact in whether Durant stays in Oklahoma City or casts his eyes elsewhere.

“[The Thunder] win it all, he can’t leave, in my opinion,” Perkins said. “But if they don’t, it might be time for a change.”

Durant says he’s committed to Oklahoma City for the moment, but he’s only human and has definitely thought about the offseason. If certain stories are true, it seems unlikely that the Thunder will be able to have enough success to keep him in the fold, and it sounds like Durant has a few potential landing spots in mind already.
