Kevin Durant Reportedly 'Strongly' Considering The Warriors, Likely To Announce Decision On The Players' Tribune

A Kevin Durant decision is coming soon. 

The All-Star forward has just one more free agency meeting left. He'll meet with the Oklahoma City Thunder this evening and then announce his decision either tonight or early on Monday, according to reports.

Durant, 27, met with the Thunder on Thursday and they're the only team he'll meet with twice. He also met with the Warriors, Clippers, Spurs, Celtics and Heat. 

Oklahoma City has been widely believed to be the favorite to land/keep the All-NBA forward, though Alex Kennedy of The Basketball Insiders reports Durant is "strongly" considering Golden State.

Durant is likely to sign a two-year deal with a one-year opt-out with whatever team he signs with. The NBA's salary cap goes up again next summer and it makes sense for Durant to wait to sign a long-term deal until that happens. 

Stay tuned.
