Warriors star Kevin Durant will have his choice of where he wants to play and live next season when he becomes a free agent this summer.
So is it a sign that he is selling his California home?
Durant is listing his Malibu home for $13.495 million, according to the Los Angeles Times' Neal J. Leitereg, a property he bought for $12.05 million last year.
His current place, a multi-level beachfront house, is close to San Francisco, where the Warriors will move to next season given this is their last one at Oracle Arena. And Durant, according to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears, is the only active Warriors player living in San Francisco (at the moment).
"I wanted to be in the big city and mix it up a little bit," Durant told The Undefeated. "It's close to the [Bay] Bridge and the practice facility and arena [in Oakland]. I wanted to try it out. I've never lived in a big city before by myself. I wanted to learn more about the flow of the city."
Durant, who grew up in Maryland, spent one season at the University of Texas and played his rookie year in Seattle before spending the next eight years in Oklahoma City, is no stranger to moving.
While he said he liked "the vibe" of San Francisco -- "It's chill, relaxing," he told Spears -- he said he and his family dealt with gentrification around Prince George's County in Maryland growing up.
When he moved to Oklahoma City, he said he enjoyed its history and roots, as black artists like Jimmy Rushing and Ralph Waldo Ellison lived there in the past.
"Something I've always been interested no matter where I've played is the history and people who came before me," Durant said. "When I lived in Oklahoma City, I lived in Deep Deuce, and that was where the black community congregated. Just to know the history of the people that lived in those streets in the city that you live in and play in is pretty cool."
When it comes to his impending free agency, Durant has said he was "not really impressed" with fans Photoshopping him in a Knicks jersey on a billboard near Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks, who had the worst record in the league and have a 14 percent chance at landing the No. 1 pick in the draft lottery, cleared enough cap space to sign two free agents to max contracts this offseason when they dealt Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks.
This year's class of free agens has no shortage of star power: Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler and Kemba Walker, among them. And Durant.
The 10-time All-Star, four-time scoring champ and two-time NBA Finals MVP has tried to ignore the speculation throughout the season, especially as the Warriors head to a Game 6 against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, repeatedly saying he wants to focus on basketball and what he does on the court in search of Golden State's third straight title.
But maybe, just maybe, this is a sign.
