A little background for those who are unfamiliar with Nate Jones - He's a phenomenal follow on twitter (@jonesonthenba), and has great insights when it comes to basketball - both on and off the court. He also does digital media and marketing for Goodwin Sports - the agency Kevin Durant was with up until 2012.
And he sparked up more than a little bit of interest today, suggesting that he thinks the best situation for Kevin Durant if he were to leave Oklahoma City would be Boston.
If KD is gonna leave OKC, he should head east. Could be in the Finals every year in the right spot.— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) February 23, 2016
Heading East, Boston would be the spot for KD. Tons of assets, great coach, great GM, marketable team brand/history.— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) February 23, 2016
Re: KD and Boston. They've set themselves up really well. Has to at least listen to what they are pitching. https://t.co/sHGMFKYRYE— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) February 23, 2016
I have no allegiance to the Celtics. Just speaking objectively. I don't think Golden State is the right move for him as a superstar brand.— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) February 23, 2016
To clarify, Jones is just speculating as a fan and marketer. He does not appear to be working off any sources, and his current relationship with Kevin Durant is unclear. MattDotRich 2/23/2016 12:54:00 PM Tweet Edit
