Could Kevin Durant wind up rejoining the Oklahoma City Thunder, where it all started, if the Phoenix Suns trade him?

If the Suns decide to part ways with Durant, the Thunder are the current favorites to be his next team, according to Bet Online Sportsbook’s odds.

Oklahoma City’s chances of obtaining Durant are +300. The New York Knicks and Miami Heat are ranked second and third, respectively.

The Thunder making a move for Durant now would actually make some sense considering they just finished with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference this past season. They were ultimately eliminated by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs.

Durant teaming up with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chet Holmgren would certainly be intriguing and would potentially make OKC the favorite to win the West next season.

Of course, the idea of Durant sounds great in theory. He has been one of the best players in the NBA for a decade (if not more), and will go down as one of the greatest scorers to ever play the game. He also has a couple of championships under his belt, so he knows what it takes to win in the playoffs.
