Durant is planning on attending the jersey retirement of Nick Collison

Several former SuperSonics/Thunder players are expected to be in Oklahoma City for the event as the Thunder are aware of Durant's plan to be there and will accommodate his request, according to Wojnarowski.

The Thunder are reportedly excited at the thought of having Durant back in the city for a celebratory occasion, so hopefully that's exactly what occurs.

During their time together with the team, Durant and Collison saw the franchise reach four Western Conference finals and the 2012 NBA Finals.

Durant spent nine seasons playing alongside Collison, from his rookie year in Seattle in 2007-08, until he controversially left the Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016. The 30-year-old National Basketball Association star is scheduled to be in OKC on March 20 when the Thunder retires the jersey of Nick Collison, someone he played with for nine seasons, NBC Sports reported.

Durant will travel from the Warrriors game on March 19 in Minneapolis and head to Oklahoma City for the event, which will take place on March 20.

"That group was so special, that whole group from 2010 until I left there, it was special", Durant told Wojnarowski.

In a recent interview, Durant said he wanted everyone to let go of the past and come together for Collison.

The Warriors are home against the Indiana Pacers on March 21.

No, not to play for the Thunder again, but to attend the jersey retirement ceremony for Nick Collison. Durant won the league MVP award following the 2013-14 season. Both Durant and the Thunder have moved on, with OKC reshaping a new contender around Russell Westbrook and Paul George. He will return to Northern California in time for Golden State's game against in the following day.
