OKC
OKC
He is going to sign with OKC for short term contract.

He is feeling out what other teams plans are so he has info for next years free agency
Browns
OKC but I think WEstbrook leaves next year.
San Francisco warriors
Kevin Durant Meeting Schedule:
June 30th: Thunder
July 1st: Warriors, Clippers
July 2nd: Spurs, Celtics
July 3rd: Heat
Ben Simmons > Keenan Durante
I don't get why Kevin Durant is even meeting with the Clippers. Westbrook, Oladipo, and Adams are solid pieces and OKC could surround them with role players while keeping Kevin Durant.

The Clippers have all their cap space tied up in their big 3, so they would have to let everyone else on the roster go and sign a bunch of league minimum players to fill out that roster if they brought in Durant.

The Warriors and Thunder are better situations. All the Clippers are being paid roughly their market value (>$20 million per year) while Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are getting paid less than market value in Golden State and Westbrook, Oladipo, and Steven Adams are getting paid less than market value in OKC. OKC could potentially bring in Al Horford to pair with Kevin Durant while keeping Westbrook, Oladipo, and Adams.

The Spurs like to keep free-agent presentations short and wrapped up this AM's visit with Kevin Durant in less than two hours, sources say

The question is how could OKC manage to stay below the cap with Horford, Durant, Westbrook, Oladipo and Adams.

Oladipo and Adams are still on their rookie deals. They may not be able to keep all of them long term, but they can put that team together for this upcoming season. Depending on how much the cap goes up in 2017, they would have a decent shot at keeping 4 of them together.
So if Conley gets 153 mil, Durant will get what? 350 mil? lol
