Kevin Durant is a free agent this summer and we are going to be treated to the rare occurrence of an actual NBA superstar being available for all other franchises to take a swing at signing.
Everyone that is, except the Philadelphia 76ers, who seem to have already given up any hope they had of landing the incredible small forward.
Speaking to the media yesterday, Sixers head coach Brett Brown who stated that in all likelihood it was pretty much impossible that a player of Durant's quality would consider moving to Philadelphia anytime soon.

"If we're all honest, it's going to be hard to get Kevin Durant to come to (the Sixers)," Brown said Friday afternoon prior to his team's home game against the New York Knicks.
While Durant may not be a practical get on the open market, Brown has faith that the organization can convince other talented NBA players to make the move to the City of Brotherly Love.
"We think we have a lot to offer and are confident we can attract free agents to come here," Brown added.
It's a struggle to really tell if Brown is joking here. No one is expecting Durant to go to the Sixers at all. They don't have any other All-Star caliber players for him to link up with and only just managed to avoid tying the record for the worst regular season record in NBA history.
Durant wants to win now and is being linked with moves to the Lakers, his hometown Washington Wizards, and the Golden State Warriors it what would be a huge move if it were to happen.
