Kevin Durant: Set to re-sign with Warriors

Five free-agency questions for the Warriors Kevin Durant’s contract length veteran minimum options and more

Golden State will have to closely watch their tax situation from getting out of control, already having a balancing act by staggering Durant's contract, and expecting to dole out deals to Klay Thompson next offseason and to Draymond Green in 2020, hoping to keep this winning core together. The New York Times first reported the news.

"We are thrilled to have Kevin Durant with us this time around".

Yes, this was a team that took the Warriors to Game 7 - at their place - in last year's Western Conference Finals, a team that believes it was a historic 0-for-27 stretch from beyond the arc away from playing for a championship, but, like the Thunder, did Houston take a step forward by bringing their Paul back?

The second year of the deal is a player option, league sources said, allowing Durant the option to return to the free-agent market in the summer of 2019. The Warriors are staying patient to ensure they find the right pieces, a luxury afforded to them due to their all-time great core.

Part of general Bob Myers and the rest of the Warriors front office's genius is finding pluck-and-plug pieces that will complement the All-Stars, similar to acquiring McGee two summers ago.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate". Philadelphia has young stars in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to entice James, who was flattered earlier this year when a company erected billboards in OH urging him to join the Sixers.

Durant last visited Manila in 2011 but this year marks his first time to visit the Philippines as a Nike ambassador.

The Milwaukee Bucks signed forward/guard Ersan Ilyasova to a three-year deal worth $21 million. But want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. "He's earned that right to lay out the terms".

Players can not officially sign their new contracts until July 6.

Kerr, 52, just finished the fourth year of a five-year, $25 million contract he signed when he joined the Warriors in 2014. Per the report, the third year of the deal is a player option. With free agency officially opening up at midnight, every one of the King's actions will be under the heaviest possible scrutiny.

From a financial perspective, the Dubs can offer KD more money than anyone, and after leaving money on the table last summer so Golden State could afford to re-sign Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, he's due for a massive payday. He is good in all phases of the game. Whether that's good for the National Basketball Association or not is a question for another time, but it certainly says a lot about Durant as a player.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors waits for play during a 127-123 overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 29, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Meanwhile, Curry averaged 27.5 points while shooting 40.2 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from 3-point range, along with 6.8 assists and 6.0 rebounds.

This is only the beginning of free agency frenzy and it is far from over. "For sure, we're going to do this thing again".
