Kevin Durant is a free agent and he has a decision to make.

Not about where he's going to play (that's not until 2016). Under Armour and Nike are currently in a tug-of-war for Durant's services.

Reports surfaced last week that Roc Nation, which represents Durant, informed Nike that it had an offer on the table from Under Armour worth between $265-285 million over 10 years. Nike has the right to match any offer, but Durant can still choose Nike even if its offer comes in lower than Under Armour's.

Numerous reports cited Wednesday as the deadline day for Nike to make a decision. Well, Wednesday came and people started talking.

Durant's gone off to Under Armour for 10 years, $325 million. Under Armour has signed Durant for 10 years, $285 million.

And nothing happened. Nothing has been confirmed. Nothing has been announced. ESPN's Darren Rovell says Nike still has time to match Under Armour.

 

 

Stay tuned.
