Combined, Durant and Leonard account for the last three NBA Finals MVPs and would form a dynamic combination with the potential to change the fortunes of a franchise.
Durant also has the potential option of teaming up with Kyrie Irving, likely on the Brooklyn Nets. For now, it seems he’s keeping his options open. What does seem increasingly likely is that wherever Durant lands in free agency, he won’t be coming alone.
