OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Thunder general manager Sam Presti sounds confident that Kevin Durant will remain with the team.

Durant, a four-time scoring champion and the 2014 MVP, will become a free agent on July 1, and he has not made it clear whether he will stay. Presti said Monday he’s looking forward to Durant’s decision.

Players such as Boston’s Isaiah Thomas and Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid have expressed their desire for Durant to join them. Presti figures all the necessary advertising on his end has occurred during Durant’s impressive run with the franchise. The Thunder have reached the Western Conference Finals four of the past six years, including this season, and reached the NBA Finals in 2012.

Presti says Durant has earned the right to be patient.
