Kevin Durant isn't ready to put a definitive time limit on his remaining years in the NBA. But in an interview with ESPN Monday, the Warriors star floated the idea of retiring at 35.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it," Durant told ESPN. "No matter how much you enjoy it, nobody wants to be in school that long. I know I don't. At some point, you have to be ready to graduate. Thirty-five, that's just a number in my mind."

Durant turns 30 later this year.

According to the story, Durant has already told people in his inner circle that he's considering retirement in five years. It's not as if KD would be bored; he's already got a litany of projects to keep him busy off-the-court. He's currently working with Apple on a scripted TV series loosely based on his own life, and he maintains a portfolio of about 30 investments, ranging from start-ups to hospitality companies, with the Durant Company.

In addition, Durant is heavily involved with charity work. Earlier this year, he gave $10 million to College Track, a program that helps under-served teens attend and graduate from college.

"I feel like I have options," Durant told ESPN. "I'm young, I'm still learning life and about basketball. I have a whole life ahead of me that I'm excited about, and I thank basketball for opening up so many doors for me."
