Even with the NBA Finals in full swing, Kevin Durant's impending free agency remains one of the hottest topics in the basketball world. Naturally, every team in the league wants the 6-foot-11 sharpshooter, who finished fifth in MVP voting this year, and the entire state of Oklahoma is doing everything it can to keep Durant in a Thunder uniform.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin even said she would give Durant a spot on her Cabinet if he remained with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to The Tulsa World.
"If Kevin Durant thinks about leaving, which I hope he doesn't—Oklahoma loves Kevin Durant, and Kevin Durant loves Oklahoma," Fallin said. "But if he'll stay, I'll make him a Cabinet person for health and fitness on my Cabinet."
Durant's Thunder led the Golden State Warriors 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, but Stephen Curry and company made a miraculous charge to take the series in seven. There have been rumors all season—and really, for a full season before that—about where Durant will end up. Various reports have linked him to his hometown Washington Wizards (which recently signed his former coach, Scott Brooks), the San Antonio Spurs, and Golden State, among a few other choice destinations.
