Free agency is nearly upon us.

This year, Kevin Durant will be the most coveted free agent on the market. Several teams are already preparing their pitches for bringing the seven-time NBA All-Star and 2014 league MVP to their city.

The Atlanta Hawks? They have no chance, right?

Don't be so quick to answer that.

You haven't heard 11Alive Sports Anchor David Wilkinson's pitch, which the Hawks are more than welcome to use for acquiring the big man.

Hear us out Kevin:

First, your face is the new team logo. Can't beat that.

You'll see your smiling face right there on the arena floor, as well. Oh, and that arena floor, it's no longer Philips Arena. It's Durant Arena.

We'll handle the paperwork.

And while it may have taken us entirely too long to give Dominique Wilkins a statue, you get one too. Before you even step onto the floor.

Here's a pen. Welcome to Atlanta, Mr. Durant.
