Kevin Durant's free agency wasn't expected to include the All-NBA forward having suffered a torn Achilles, but the two-time NBA champion is still drawing significant interest from teams.

The Golden State Warriors star is reportedly open to re-signing with the franchise, though a couple of other teams are expected to get consideration, as well.

In total, four teams are reportedly contenders for Durant in free agency, which officially begins later this evening.

ESPN reports that Durant will be considering the following four teams: Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets.

Durant will reportedly be engaging all four teams in discussions when free agency begins on Sunday night.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski had more:

There is expected to be some combination of face-to-face meetings and communications by other means with Durant and his business manager, Rich Kleiman, front-office sources told ESPN.

Durant's decision-making process could extend well into next week, league sources told ESPN.

It's possible that Durant will team up with Kawhi Leonard in free agency, though he's not the only star player thinking about that.

Jimmy Butler, also a free agent, is reportedly talking with Leonard about playing together for the Los Angeles Clippers.

There's likely going to be a lot of movement as we head into the evening when free agency officially begins.
