Mavericks believe they're in play for Kevin Durant next summer


This is too much to process right now. Kevin Durant is a free agent next year, as you've probably heard, and it's possible someone can lure him away from Oklahoma City. Here's the thing -- with cap space increasing, everyone is going to have the room to sign him. This is going to be a free agency period even crazier than LeBron James' and I'm being totally serious.

It's a fun rumor and it's absolutely something the Mavericks should plan for, because that's a franchise-altering move if you could get him. But I wouldn't pencil him into next year's lineup or anything like that.
