The Washington Wizards believe it is unlikely they will sign Kevin Durant in free agency.
The Wizards have been setting up for a pursuit of Durant in the 2016 offseason for several years. Durant grew up in the Washington area and the hope was he would be intrigued by a homecoming.
"It's not like LeBron and Cleveland," a source told McHenry.
Washington hired Scott Brooks as head coach, who worked with Durant for several seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Wizards must contend this offseason with the restricted free agency of Bradley Beal.
