Kevin Durant is scheduled to meet with the Warriors, Spurs, and Thunder before other teams.

Durant, an NBA MVP and four time scoring champion, is one of the most highly coveted free agents in the 2016 pool, which expects to see record pay days as the salary cap rises for NBA teams.

The NBA free agency period begins officially on July 1, but the list of teams set to have face to face meetings with Durant will grow before the period begins.

According to sources close to the Golden State Warriors they will pull out all stops in their pursuit of the All NBA forward.

The Warriors are reportedly sending Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and head coach, Steve Kerr, to meet with Durant.

“All I can say is I will be very aggressive,” responded Golden State Warriors owner, Joe Lacob, when asked about signing Durant after his Game Seven loss at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

The Warriors would have to allow free agents Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli to move to other teams and might also have to rid themselves of starters and significant role players such as Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut in order to clear salary space for Durant.

The San Antonio Spurs are said to be sending five time NBA Championship winning duo Tim Duncan and head coach, Gregg Popovich, to meet Durant.

It is believed that Durant will likely sign a two year deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder with a player option after the first year.
