Kevin Durant switched agents to Jay Z's Roc Nation, leaving some fans wondering if the Thunder star was taking his first steps out of Oklahoma City.
Never fear Thunder fans, Durant has reiterated that he has no plans to leave-- as of today.
While on a tour of Europe sponsored by Nike, Durant did a Q&A in France with fans where he was asked directly about his plans to move on from the organization he began his career with and Durant didn't shy away from the question at all.
"I like where I'm at right now," Durant told the fan. "I enjoy playing for OKC. As of today, I love it there, man. I want to be there. I love the fans, I love my team, I love everything about the city. I don't have any plans to move."
Unfortunately Durant's remark "as of today" means down the road the NBA star could find a reason to take a deal with a big-market city in the summer of 2016 when he becomes a free agent.
Good news for the Thunder, if they are able to keep up their winning ways and maintain other good players on the roster (not to mention a championship ring or two), Durant would have a hard time saying no to an offer from the organization that took him with the second-overall pick in the 2007 draft back when they were known as the Seattle SuperSonics.
