A new photo of Kevin Durant in a certain city with a certain former player is sparking some free agent speculation as we head into the weekend.
Durant, who’s believed to be considering at least four different teams as free agency approaches, is currently in New York City.
Now, Durant being in New York City doesn’t necessarily mean anything. He’s moving his business headquarters to New York and the East Coast native often spends time in Manhattan.
However, Durant appeared to spend at least a little time with former New York Knicks star Charles Oakley.
Did the two perhaps discuss a potential signing with the Knicks?

Of course, Knicks fans will joke that Durant talking with Oakley is actually bad news for New York, since the former enforcer isn’t exactly on great terms with the franchise.
So it’s the nets then https://t.co/iJpR1TwCaJ

Durant did apparently get spotted in New York sporting an orange (Knicks colored?) cast earlier in the week.

Durant, who will likely be choosing between the Warriors, Knicks, Clippers and Nets, is probably seeking a four or five-year max contract.
NBA free agency is set to begin at 6 p.m. E.T. on Sunday. Durant isn’t expected to be one of the first players signed, though you never know what’ll happen.
