The NBA star, a former two-time NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors, revealed his idea in an interview with Bleacher Report on Monday.
“I really want to play overseas in my last year," he told guest interviewer Serge Ibaka in the 'How Hungry Are You?' interview. "FC Barcelona. I would like to play for them one of these days. It's the second best league in the world, and the Euroleague games look pretty fun."
Durant added explained that, whilst the prospect is an attractive one to him, he is not sure whether he will go through with the plan.
