Kevin Durant is set to officially hit free agency when it opens at 6 p.m. E.T. on Sunday evening. A couple of different teams are reportedly in play.

The All-Star forward has been linked to the Golden State Warriors, who are open to re-signing him to a max contract despite his torn Achilles. The New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers are also reportedly involved.

Durant's decision might actually come down to just three of those teams, however.

ESPN's panel of insiders believes there are three serious options for Durant: the Warriors, Knicks and Nets.

Here's how they broke down his decision:

1. Golden State Warriors

40.0

T2. Brooklyn Nets

30.0

T2. New York Knicks

30.0

That seems pretty fair, though some might put the New York Knicks in the No. 1 spot. Durant is currently in New York and was spotted with a former Knicks star on Wednesday night.

Durant could be one of the first stars to make a decision in free agency, according to Yahoo! Sports' Chris Haynes, who thinks it could be the Knicks.

NBA free agency is set to begin at 6 p.m. E.T.
