Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are back on speaking terms after Kendrick Perkins brokered a phone call.
The call took place after Westbrook broke Oscar Robertson's triple-double record in April.
Perkins had been attempting to "figure out a way to try to make them talk again, because I felt like the outside world was putting a beef there that really wasn't too serious," that Durant messaged him with the news. Perkins spoke about the relationship during TNT's "Area 21".
"I think the night that Russ actually broke the record, I had texted KD," Perkins said. "The next day, he was talking about something and he sent me a text and was like, 'Me and Russ had a nice conversation.' The media don't even know nothing about it, but I just let it be known that they're back on talking terms, the differences are aside."
Perkins added that Durant could eventually return to the Thunder.
"I wouldn't be surprised -- if KD makes a little run, I wouldn't be surprised if he goes back to Oklahoma," Perkins said. "Because in my opinion, I don't think Russ is going anywhere. He's that type of guy. He just wants to stick it out, and he just wants you to give him those pieces and he just wants to roll with it. He's not going and trying to run and chase [titles]. And one thing about it, he's not begging nobody to come play with him."
Both Westbrook and Durant weren't interested in talking about their relationship during All-Star Weekend when they were teammates.
