Kevin Durant Wants to Sign an Extension This Summer

by June 23, 2010

Durant tells the AP that he hopes to re-up in OKC very soon: “The cover of EA Sports’ new NBA video game features Kevin Durant on the cover in a white Oklahoma City Thunder jersey. Durant hopes he’ll soon be signed up to wear that jersey for a long time. The NBA’s scoring champion from last season will get the opportunity to negotiate an extension with the Thunder on July 1 and he’s looking forward to signing on the dotted line. ‘I hope it happens, man. I’m really emphasizing how much I really enjoy playing for the Oklahoma City team and playing for that city,’ Durant said in a phone interview Tuesday after the NBA ELITE 11 cover was unveiled. ‘Hopefully something gets done. I work hard and hopefully things start to pan out for me. We’ll see what happens on July 1.”‘
