In an interview with Boardroom, Kevin Durant was asked whether he could see himself retiring in Phoenix with the Suns.
Currently, the future Hall of Famer is in the first year of a four-year contract worth over $194 million.
“I’m having a good time in the moment, and I can see myself being here for the rest of my career,””But who knows?” “I said the same thing about Brooklyn.”
Durant began his career with the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007, but quickly moved to the OKC Thunder, where he stayed for eight seasons, all of which he was named an All Star.
Following his time with the Thunder, Durant spent three years with the Warriors, where he led them to two NBA Finals victories, both of which he was named MVP for.
And of course, Durant would spend two-and-a-half seasons with the Brooklyn Nets before heading over to the valley to play with the Suns.
During the interview, KD also noted that he finds the movement of players across the league “exciting for fans.”
“I’m excited that we can move around like this in the league and make it more exciting for fans… and the playoffs will be even more fun with better teams, so it just makes for a better year and better storylines.”
While he has yet to even step on the court for Phoenix, at 34 years old, one has to wonder how many more seasons he has left in the tank.
After all, Durant will be 38 by the time his contract expires.
So, unless he wants out via trade (which he can this summer), KD could very well play his final NBA game at the Footprint Center, especially with the attractiveness of the city as it continues to bring in big-name players who will want to follow in Durant’s footsteps.
