Durant scheduled to play final two Summer League games
Durant will return to the team Thursday and is scheduled to play in Seattle's final two games on Friday and Sunday, team spokesman Kurt Fedders said.
Durant, the second overall pick in last month's draft, was nominated for three ESPY Awards. He averaged 25.8 points as a freshman at Texas and won national player of the year honors.
The 6-foot-9 swingman is averaging 17.5 points in Seattle's first two games but has shot 9-of-36 and the Sonics have dropped both.
Fedders said Durant's appearance at the awards ceremony was planned before the team arrived in Las Vegas.
