Former Seattle Supersonics forward Kevin Durant expressed excitement amid reports his current team, the Golden State Warriors are in discussions to play a preseason game against the Sacramento Kings in Seattle Oct. 6.
Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant made his National Basketball Association debut as a member of the Sonics before spending the ensuing eight seasons with the Thunder.
The NBA is reportedly returning to Seattle, but it's definitely not the way SuperSonics fans have hoped. The Kings, who were a strong candidate to be relocated to Seattle when the Maloof brothers sold the team back in 2013, remained in Sacramento when then-NBA Commissioner David Stern gave city officials a chance to find an ownership group that would keep the team in California. At this point, the paperwork for the October NBA preseason game has not been finalized, but it is being reported as a formality.

The letter was addressed to both Meghan and Harry and was sent to the couple's home, Kensington Palace, in London . Detectives are investigation "an offense of malicious communication" related to the package.
Though Durant would become a perennial All-Star as a member of the Thunder, reaching the NBA Finals in 2012, and winning the NBA MVP in 2014, Durant continually expressed love for his first professional home.
The Warriors star said: "That Seattle Sonics culture was deep". And while a segment of Kings fans are unforgiving, and many Sonics fans are gnashing their teeth and still agonizing about what they lost and what might have been - this is absolutely irresistible.
The Kings were almost moved to Seattle in 2013. In 2013, the team was almost sold to a group that would have moved the franchise from Sacramento to the Pacific Northwest.
