“It seems like years ago,” Durant said on Wednesday after the Thunder’s morning shootaround. “I’m here now. Try not to think about the past.

Durant was set to make his long-awaited return to the court on Wednesday night when the Thunder opened the preseason in Minnesota.

Former No.1 draft pick Anthony Bennett and the Minnesota Timberwolves are talking buyout.
Minnesota is stacked up front and doesn’t need Bennett. They have a five-man big rotation already of Karl-Anthony Towns, Kevin Garnett, Gorgui Dieng, Nikola Pekovic, and Adreian Payne. They don’t need Bennett.
Minnesota had tried to trade Bennet before, but there were no takers. Minnesota got Bennett from Cleveland in the Kevin Love trade.
