Kevin Durant to the Warriors is having a moment, but even the most recent and most credible report linking the Thunder star to Golden State contained an important caveat:
Make no mistake: Durant isn’t close to gone in Oklahoma City – no decision, no leaning, sources said
Nobody has credibly reported Durant is leaning toward leaving the Thunder. The issue at hand is where Durant would go IF he leaves Oklahoma City.
Except one NBA general manager has gone a step further.

Had dinner with a GM a couple weeks back. Talking summer free agency plans while watching an GSW game. Mentioned Ezeli/Barnes (1 of 3)— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) February 2, 2016
I said "they're not letting them go. It's not like they're getting KD". The GM raises turns and said: "what makes you so sure?" (2 of 3)— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) February 2, 2016
Me: "How good is GSW's chances?" The GM said "they're the leaders in the clubhouse."— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) February 2, 2016
