Report: Brooklyn Nets "Targeting" Kevin Durant For 2017

Posted: Updated:

Considering the hot streak he's been on, Kevin Durant has a chance to light up the Barclays Center when the Brooklyn Nets host the Thunder on Friday night. 

According to the New York Daily News, the Nets want to make that a permanent arrangement. 

Stefon Bondy reports that the free-spending Nets will  target the Thunder's superstar in 2017, when Durant is scheduled to become a free agent.   

Durant recently signed with Jay-Z's agency, Roc Nation Sports, and many speculated that the New-York native would try and lure Durant to the Big Apple. Jay-Z gave up his ownership stake in the Nets in order to become an agent. 

Nets point guard Deron Williams offered insight on what Durant's mindset might be.

"For someone like (Durant), I think it makes a bigger difference because of the endorsements he'd command in a market like this," Willaims told Bondy.  "I mean, look at what he's already doing in Oklahoma City."

Durant hasn't spoken much about his future, but has said that Jay-Z's representation wouldn't play a role in his decision.
