SEATTLE (AP) _ A few months ago former Texas star Kevin Durant took in a meaningless regular-season game between San Antonio and visiting Seattle believing then his likely NBA destination would be Memphis or Boston.

Sunday he spent about 45 minutes working out for SuperSonics officials almost certain that his professional future will begin in the Pacific Northwest.

The Sonics are owned by an Oklahoma City group led by businessman Clay Bennett.

Durant's workout for the Sonics came two days after he put on a sterling performance for the Portland Trail Blazers

That workout seemed to open the possibility that The Associated Press college player of the year could go number one to Portland.

Durant says his audition for the Sonics was similar -- focusing on ballhandling, post moves and outside shooting.
