The free agency of Kevin Durant is undoubtedly going to dominate headlines around the NBA for weeks and months to come.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star is naturally going to be in high demand, with teams from all across the league trying their best to convince the All-Star that they are the best fit for his talents.

Well, Durant's first face-to-face meetings have apparently been revealed and they are all with very, very good teams.

According to a report from Marc Stein of ESPN, the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and the OKC Thunder themselves are the first sides to have landed recruitment meetings with the unrestricted free agent.

Warriors and Spurs Pushing Hard

Judging by the report, the Spurs and Warriors are going after Durant hard and are bringing everything they've got into the meetings. 

"The Warriors and Spurs, sources say, are both already planning to load a plane full of key organizational figures -- including Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for Golden State, and Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan for San Antonio -- to fly to an undisclosed location once free-agency season starts to try to lure Durant away from the only franchise he has ever played for," Stein stated. 

Stein went on to add that the Warriors believe they have a great chance of landing Durant after their recent Finals appearance.

Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports stated that the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, and Miami Heat could all also be in line for a meeting with the 5x All-NBA first teamer.

It's going to be an exciting free agency. This is only the start.
