Kevin Durant was asked on Wednesday to respond to comments by ESPN's Jalen Rose about the possibility of him signing with the Houston Rockets after the 15-16 season.
Rose believes Russell Westbrook will leave the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers and join Kevin Love.
"Nah, I’m here for the Thunder (laughs)," said Durant. "I mean, that’s all I can say. I’m not thinking far down the line at all. It’s about today. Today we got better against the Chicago Bulls. I can’t tell the future. I can’t speak on that. That’s his opinion. I’m just going to keep playing for the Thunder. I love playing here."
Durant expects speculation about his free agency to continue over the past three seasons.
"I mean, just let them know I’m not thinking that far down the line, I guess. I mean, I love my teammates. I love where I live. I love playing for this organization. So I’m just taking it a day at a time."
