Kevin Durant wants to be treated like LeBron James was in free agency

Kevin Durant's contract is expected to expire at the end of the season, which when he will become one of the hottest free agents on the market.

Several teams will be interested in acquiring the player's services if he does decide to leave his current team, the Oklahoma City Thunder when the season is over, and many teams have been rumored to be considering offering the power forward a contract.

At the end of the day, only Durant will decide where he will be playing his basketball next season. So where does he want to play? According to reports, he wants to be treated in the same way which LeBron James was when he become a free agent six years ago.

The report by Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports says: "Durant is looking forward to being recruited, to being courted, to being treated like the biggest free-agent prize since LeBron James six years ago.

"The chances of Durant sending a simple tweet again announcing his return are virtually nonexistent, but the Thunder remain hopeful that his decision, regardless of how this season ends, is the same."

Obviously, the Thunder are going to be hoping he stays with the team, but the chances of that happening seem to be less than him moving on elsewhere.

The likelihood is every team that wants Durant will offer him a max contract, so the only way which he can separate the offers from one another will be on all the perks that they give to him for being one of the hottest free agents on the market this summer.
