Kevin Durant reportedly would consider the Washington Wizards if he did not re-sign with the Thunder before the start of the 2017 season. (Durant becomes a free agent in 2016).
Durant made it sound like the only place that he would even consider to go to in free agency (if he doesn't return to the Thunder) would be the Wizards. Durant may pull a LeBron James and "return home" to D.C., but a lot can happen between now and 2016, when Durant is eligible for free agency, so don't count on a move to the Wizards right now.

Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
