Kevin Durant revealed the one thing he's thinking about when he enters free agency next year.

The two-time NBA champion is already rumored to potentially join LeBron James with the Lakers or head to the Knicks, but Durant said money will be a big factor in his decision.

“I am thinking about the money I’m going to get,” Durant told The Athletic. “I never got the (massive) deal. I’ve just seen a bunch of dudes around the league making so much money — and I’m happy for them.

"But I know I deserve that, too. That’s the only thing I’m probably thinking about, to be honest.”

Durant re-signed with the Warriors in July and will make $30 million this season.
