2015-16 Statistics:

28.2 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 5.0 APG, 1.0 SPG, 1.2 BPG, 50.5 FG%, 38.8 3PT%, 89.8 FT%

The 2014 NBA MVP had an injury filled 2015 season, but burst back onto the scene in 2016 to reclaim his spot amongst the elites of the NBA. Durant is one of the best pure scorers in NBA history and has really improved his all-around game as he is a good rebounder, playmaker, and defender.

The question for Durant now is whether it is best for him to sign a short term deal with an opt-out after one year so he can hit the market again next summer when the cap will jump again and he will be eligible for the largest maximum contract as a 10-year NBA player.

Any team that has any chance at securing a meeting with Durant will do everything in their power to convince him to join their franchise.
