If Riley manages to rope this whale into South Beach it would be his biggest accomplishment yet. Yes, even bigger than LeBron James in 2010. Considering the amount of uncertainty surrounding the Heat roster, to convince a top three player in the world to buy into your organization would simply be incredible.

According to reports from ESPN, Durant is expected to make his announcement tomorrow. Hopefully, tomorrow will be the beginning of a new era in Heat basketball, an era that has Durant wearing red, black, and white.
