On all accounts, Kevin Durant is playing through his last games with the Warriors. As he ends his current arrangement with the team, he will seek new opportunities.

For Kendrick Perkins, a former teammate of Durant, there is no greater place for him to return than to Washington, where the 10x All-Star grew up.

"I think KD might be gone. He served his time, did the right thing in Golden State … I think it’s time for him to go off and do his own thing. Ya know, he’s won his rings … go build his legacy somewhere else, where he actually could say, “It’s Kevin Durant’s team.”

Even though Kevin steps up in the big moments [for the Golden State Warriors] … it’s still gonna always be Steph’s team. So I think KD needs to go to where it’s actually KD’s team."

He revealed his wishes for Durant to return to his hometown.

“That’s one of my great friends — he’s like a little brother,” Perkins said. “And I always tell him: I wish he’d go back home, to be honest. I wish he’d go back to Washington. I think that would be great for him.”

The Wizards just ended another tough season, posting a record of 32-50. John Wall tore his Achilles following a fall in his home, and Bradley Beal seems to want out.

KD could turn things around drastically for them. But it would obviously take a lot of convincing.
