First, Durant's former teammate, Derek Fisher, was named the Knicks' head coach. Now the Knicks' newest assistant, Brian Keefe, is being touted as "Durant's guy."
According to the New York Post, Keefe and Durant are very close. Keefe was in Oklahoma City for seven seasons. So perhaps the combination of Fisher and Keefe in New York would be enticing for Durant, a free agent in the summer of 2016.
