NBA superstar Kevin Durant confessed he would be interested in finishing his career with Barcelona.

Ten-time All-Star Durant won two NBA championships as part of a dominant Golden State Warriors side, while he was named MVP in 2014 after averaging 32 points per game for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The 31-year-old, who also has two Olympic gold medals to his name, will hope to add further honours when he returns from an Achilles rupture to team up with Kyrie Irving at the Brooklyn Nets, which he joined in free agency on a reported four-year $164million deal.

Durant is finally ready to start winding down though, and he likes the idea of challenging himself in Europe.

"I really want to play overseas my last year. At Barcelona. I would [like to], one of these days," Durant told Serge Ibaka on How Hungry Are You?.

"That's the second-best league in the world and EuroLeague games look fun. But that's just me in the house, on the couch, watching TV, dreaming.

"I don't know for a fact if I'll do it, but it would be cool to experience it."

Footage of Durant making the comments published on Twitter unsurprisingly drew reactions from Barcelona's official account and those belonging to Alex Abrines and Nikola Mirotic.
