ESPN's Rose makes bold predictions about Thunder

October 23, 2013

ESPN analyst Jalen Rose predicted Kevin Durant would leave Oklahoma City when he becomes a free agent and will join James Harden in Houston.

Rose didn't stop there. Rose also said guard Russell Westbrook will go to the Lakers when Westbrook becomes a free agent.

Durant is signed through the 2015-2016 season. Westbrook is signed through the 2017 season.

Rose cited the fact Durant sold his house and moved downtown. He also mentioned Durant is good friends with Harden, who began his career in OKC before being traded to Houston last season, and also played at the University of Texas.

Rose said Westbrook would pair up with his former UCLA teammate Kevin Love and head to the Lakers.
