With the NBA Payoffs in full swing, this edition of House of the Week highlights a Hamptons property with some serious league history. The New York Times reports that the house for sale at 189 Further Lane in East Hampton was the secret location Kevin Durant held negotiations with prospective teams after becoming a free agent in 2016. The rental for the week was a cool $100k. 

Durant's agent looked at several properties before deciding on 189 Further which was perfect in that it was "very, very private" and featured ceilings tall enough for the 7 foot Durant and guests to be comfortable. That week, representatives from "the Golden State Warriors, the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Boston Celtics — who would have Tom Brady in tow" all visited. And as we know, Durant ultimately picked the Golden State Warriors and the Lineup of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Durant was nicknamed the Hamptons 5 as that is where it all came together. 

If you are the ultimate KD fan, are simply in the market for a Hamptons pad, or both...get in touch. I am also a huge fan and can get you a piece of NBA history for just under $15m.
