But Lakers faces a tough battle with his signature as a surprise team has apparently come to the competition.
Durant becomes a free agent at the end of the year and is expected to move to the pasture because he wants to win the championship with more than one franchise candidate.
The Lakers and Staples Center partners LA Clippers have been in regular contact with moving forward.
According to Sheridan, Washington Wizards can also look to steal the march on their competitors – just as they did to Trevor Ariza yesterday.
"Kevin drives the races so he is going to go where there is a greater chance of winning the championship," Sheridan told Scoop B radio podcast.
"Now it looks like LA Lakers like these two top points.
"But we do not know where the Lakers will come from within the trading deadline.
"There are guys who want to get out where they are now.
"You just have to look at the landscape after the February trade day before you say" Kevin Durant landed here ".
"Kevin Durant knows what's best, he may end up with the wizards, and I think he's coming to Lakers.
"You can ask me a question on February 8 and get another answer."
Sheridan also suggested that Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard might also have captured Lakers.
"Like Kawhi Leonard, Kahwi Leonard, wants to go to Clipper instead of Lakers," he added.
"Or Kahwi might be comfortable in Toronto and say: I like it here.
"Or he wants to come to New York, he spent last season in New York when he did not respect his contract with Spurs."
