Durant wants to be an NBA owner; for Seattle would be 'great story'

3

Kevin Durant wants to be an NBA team owner and will look around at any opportunity after he retires. If he can help bring a team back to Seattle, he'd be all for that.

"It's just the fact that I played there and I get so much love there," Durant said. "More than any city in the league probably. Look, it would be a great story. But it would be a lot of hard work, it won't be easy because it's Seattle. After the press release and the first couple of weeks it's straight to work. I know people want to tie me into Seattle a lot, and I love being part of that, but I'm not just waiting for that opportunity. Any opportunity that comes around where I could become [part of] an ownership group or a front office or anywhere I could just help the team as of right now in my life I would go for it, but who knows what will happen at the end of my career?"
