ESPN FREE AGENTS ANALYSIS90%+ likely to be re-signed
Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Rolf Young
Re-signing Durant is top priority for the Thunder during the off-season. He is the heart and soul of the team and the cornerstone of the franchise.
He is simply one of the best players in the league and basically irreplaceable. Probably the best scorer in the league and an efficient defender.
As evidence of this he was named both scoring champion and defensive player of the year this season, the second time he's managed that feat.
He has been the one constant during all four of the Thunder's championships. Team mates have come and gone but he has been there each time.
His achievements at just 25 are incredible; 1x regular season MVP , 3x finals MVP, 2x scoring champion, 4x DPOTY, 5x all-star and 3x all-star MVP.
Rose is regularly and rightfully rated amongst the elite point guards in the league like Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook.
This season he managed forty double-double games including six games of 20+ assists. He even broke Scott Skiles' assist record with 31 in a game.
He led the league in assists for the first time in his career. It seems like he's really found his groove in Oklahoma City alongside Durant and Griffin.
It's believed that the Thunder management's objective is to secure Rose and Durant before making any offers to their other out of contract players.
In the event that Rose decides to move on then Jeremy Lin may be in the perfect position to take over the keys to the best offense in the league.
Rolf Young's story is one of the best in the NBA. Plucked from the streets of the Norwegian capital and persuaded to nominate for the NBA draft.
He got the shock of his life when the Thunder, fresh off completing a three-peat of titles, selected him with pick 44 of the 2012 national draft.
It's proved to be a real diamond in the rough find by Sam Presti. The 24 year old Norwegian is already drawing comparisons to Carmelo Anthony.
The difference is that Young is as near as makes no difference seven feet tall. His game is still raw but he's learning from the best in the league.
Durant decided to take Young under his wing and help him settle in with the team. Two years later and Durant now even speaks some Norwegian.
Young has had some brilliant games off the bench for the Thunder. Reaching 40 points once, 30 points ten times and 20 points seventeen times.
His inconsistent playing time behind Durant has effected his form though and he's only averaged nine points per game during his Thunder career.
The big occasions don't really seem to both him though. He has been voted the Rookie-Sophomore game MVP in both of the past two seasons.
He is a favourite of Presti's and seemingly guaranteed an extension offer. But things may still depend on what happens with Durant's situation.
