One day after the Oklahoma City Thunder's season ended, forward Kevin Durant said he has started to think about his pending free agency.

Durant told ESPN's Chris Broussard on Tuesday morning that he has several decisions to make and will sit down with those close to him to decide what he wants to do.

Durant told Broussard that he has thought about being a free agent since Monday night's Game 7 loss to the Golden State Warriorsin the Western Conference finals. Durant said he recognizes that this summer will be different from any other in his career.

Durant has spent his entire nine-year career with the Thunder organization and is a seven-time All-Star. He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and he is expected to be one of the most coveted free agents in league history.

Durant told Broussard that it's difficult to imagine where he'll end up because he doesn't know much about potential suitors at this point.

After last night's game, Durant told ESPN's Marc J. Spears that he will huddle with his inner circle to discuss his next step.

"We will figure it out," Durant told Spears. "I will talk to my agent, my best friend and my dad, just talk to those three guys and get some advice from other people. But for the most part, I will talk to them in the next couple of weeks. I don't even know where my mind is right now. I can't think about what is going to happen in a month. I'm just thinking about what we've all been through as a team and embrace my brothers right now."
