James Harden could become a restricted free agent next summer if he is unable to agree to terms with the Thunder on a contract extension.

But Kevin Durant doesn't expect Harden to ever reach that stage.

"He not hittin the market," said Durant in a Tweet response to Nate Jones of Goodwin Sports Management.

Many have speculated that Oklahoma City would be unable to afford Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden on max or near-max contracts.
