However, according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, if Durant were to sign with a team other than OKC, it will be the Los Angeles Lakers:

"Regardless of how senseless it may (sound), in one breath I'm hearing that if Kevin Durant doesn't stay in Oklahoma City, L.A. is his primary objective and landing spot as opposed to South Beach or even his home of Washington, D.C."

The Lakers have struck out in their pursuit of top free agents over the past few years, most notably LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan, and Greg Monroe this offseason.
