The Golden State Warriors’ power forward has appeared in multiple posts on Cassandra Anderson’s Snapchat profile in late January 2018. Anderson works as a realtor for Berkshire Hathaway in Pleasanton, California, just outside of the Oakland/San Francisco bay area where Durant has seasonal work.
On her Instagram page, Anderson says, “Love the life you live. Live the life you love.” She’s a native of Bakersfield, California, and lived for a while in the affluent Brentwood neighborhood of California, according to her Facebook page.
