Friday at 12:01 a.m. the NBA free agency period gets underway, and with teams having more money to spend thanks to a higher salary cap it could be wild. After working with a cap of $70 million for the 2015-16 season, NBA teams are expected to have a salary cap of $94 million for the 2016-17 campaign. That means more money for players (and their agents) across the board, most especially those perceived to be worthy of a max deal. And at the top of that list is Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Durant.
After playing the first nine seasons of his NBA career with the Seattle/Oklahoma City franchise (the team moved in 2008), Durant will be an unrestricted free agent not lacking for suitors when free agency begins in a couple days. According to ESPN.com
the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player, who will meet with the Thunder before free agency gets going, has meetings (to be held in The Hamptons) scheduled with Golden State, San Antonio, Miami, Boston and the Los Angeles Clippers
. Of course Durant's status also opens the door for some betting, with BetOnline via OddsShark
