The NBA's aim with the 2011 CBA was to help level the playing field for smaller market franchises. So, does the league have a stake in Kevin Durant remaining in one of the smallest ones? "As the commissioner of 30 teams, we put a system in place and it plays out the way it does," Commissioner Adam Silver said. "All I can say is they run an incredible franchise here and Kevin's had fantastic success, but ultimately players earn the right to be free agents and that's a very personal decision at the end of the day."
