Thunder woos Durant with midnight visit
By Mark J. Miller / Sports Rumors

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant(notes) wasn't expecting team reps to show up at his doorstep at midnight Wednesday night to start talking about a contract extension. After all, they've got till Oct. 31 to work something out. But they showed up anyway at one minute after the hour to show their star some love, according to ESPN.
The 21-year-old NBA scoring champion is likely to end up with the maximum five-year, $80 million offer from the Thunder, the site reports.
"I'm still a kid myself," Durant said Wednesday.

They'll definitely keep Durant happy, which certainly isn't hard. As long as we've got the KD/Westbrook duo, and a good supporting cast around them, we're gonna achieve some big things.

They should lock him up now but either way he'll be with them even if he is a RFA next summer

I hate hearing how Boston fans on this forum say that they were going get Durant when he's a FA. fools...

It'll be good if he accepts the max extension they are offering him, would be awesome if he stays in OKC.

The Thunder have a really good FO and I've got a ton of respect for the whole organization. Hopefully he'll stay there in OKC.

Smart move. It'd be best to lock him up asap

smart move in 2 ways.

1- the want to lock a top 5 player in the NBA up for long term

2- if they lock him up before he plays this year the max isnt as much money.

so its kinda a 2 for 1.


and I wonder if the thunder would try and make a splash. IMO they should go after some type of post presence.

Mayb Gortat? or something like that or pryzbilla

This is such a great move by the OKC org. What better way to show your star player you want him in your uni forever. I bet Durant is loving this as well

And Rudy Gay got a 5 yr 82 mill contract. Durant better have some outs after a couple of years, because he gettin' a screwin'....Gay style.

Although i bet EVERYONE wants KD to be on their teams, nobody really wants him to leave.

My favorite 3 teams: BOS, OKC, SAC

lets go!

Lol are people actually surprised by this? I'm pretty sure everyone knew they were going to do something like this.

He's going to Orlando to root on the Summer League team, something tells me this will be a easy process to just offer him the max and he'll accept it.

People are surprised at the fact that it was on the big free agent signing day...1 minute after midnight! Of course we all know it was going to happen sooner or later. The way it happened was just awesome.
