Earlier Saturday morning, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed there was a "real possibility" Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard team up together on the same team.

Woj mentioned the Los Angeles Clippers as the destination for both players.

However, as the free agency nears, another team has been added to the list.

According to a new report from Woj and Ramona Shelburne, KD and Kawhi are reportedly interested in teaming up with the Clippers or the New York Knicks.

"Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard have been discussing free agent scenarios that could include a future with them playing together. For now, there are two clear possibilities for them to sign into the same franchise: Clippers and Knicks," Woj and Shelburne reported on Saturday.

Durant will miss the full 2019-20 season as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles tendon. Until then, Kawhi might have to carry the load for their new team - if they decide to pair up.

A tandem of Kawhi and KD would give the Knicks or the Clippers arguably the best pairing in the NBA.

Both Kawhi and KD are expected to have interest in the Lakers and Clippers.
