Playing on a newly-signed one-plus-one $61.5 million max extension, Kevin Durant has maximum flexibility when it comes to his basketball career.

Currently in Las Vegas with Team USA, Durant addressed his contract situation and his preference for short-term deals with Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

“I just want to take it a day at a time, and I don’t want to look at my future now,” Durant said. “The (one-plus-one) was the perfect thing for me to do, to keep things open for me — financially and what I want to do. It’s just one of those things.”

Colin Cowherd, the host of “The Herd” and the master of drawing out real-world parallels when it comes to sports, offered an intriguing  — if not conspiratorial — take on the situation.

“There’s a reason millennials rent," Cowherd said. "I’ve got millennials in my family. Do you know why they rent? So they can find a better option. They don’t want to own. They want to rent.

“And Kevin Durant’s a millennial. And LeBron’s a millennial. And they rent. They don’t buy. Of course Kevin Durant loved LeBron moving to Los Angeles.”

“The kid that’s comfortable with mobility — in an era that is now and celebrated — to be mobile. Good for Kevin. Always going to defend him. He’s not going to be in Oakland very much longer.”
