Report: Kevin Durant Told Russell Westbrook He Was Going Re-Sign With The Thunder

Russell Westbrook is pretty pissed at Kevin Durant for leaving the OKC Thunder and now we know why.

According to ESPN’s Royce Young, Durant had dinner with Westbrook a few nights before making his decision and told the OKC Thunder guard that he was returning to Oklahoma City.


Three weeks ago, Kevin Durant’s sitting there at dinner, telling him “Hey, I’m coming back, man. Don’t worry about it.” And now, Russell Westbrook has been kind of thrown into this in having to decide his future a summer earlier than expected.

Kevin Durant, more so than even that, was telling people, “Hey, yeah, I mean I’m coming back.” Like I said in there, a week before Kevin Durant sat down in the Hamptons, he was in Oklahoma City ready to make an offer on a multi-million-dollar house. So, the guy was pretty serious about coming back, and then things turned rather quickly for him to leave. And there’s no doubt that the organization felt a little bit burned by this.

While Durant has every right to change his mind he kind of left Westbrook in an awkward position with the Thunder and the media.
