Durant splits from longtime agent Goodwin

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant says he's splitting from his longtime agent, Aaron Goodwin.

Durant said before Friday's game against the Golden State Warriors that he appreciates what Goodwin has done for him "but it was time for me to move on."

When he entered the NBA draft in 2007 after his freshman season at Texas, Durant signed with Goodwin's Seattle-based Goodwin Sports Management. Goodwin helped negotiate Durant's five-year, $86 million contract that Durant signed in July 2010.

Durant's picture and name still were prominently displayed on the Goodwin Sports Management website Friday night.

Durant says he hasn't chosen a new agent and that he and his brother will handle those duties for now. Durant says he won't let changing agents affect him on the court.
