Kevin Durant to opt out, redo deal with Warriors

  • Kevin Durant signed a discounted two-year $51 million deal with the Warriors last offseason that included an opt-out clause

It's worth noting that a lot of these games are not exclusively the Curry factor, as the Warriors were also missing the likes of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green through a stretch - massively affecting results at both ends of the floor.

If you're a fan of a team that isn't the Warriors and your hope is that this means your team can sell Durant and leaving the bay area, I have some bad news.

The All-Star has chose to opt-out of his current contract of $26 million to restructure a new deal with the Warriors, league sources told ESPN.

The NBA playoffs begin this Saturday with the Golden State Warriors tied with the Houston Rockets with the best odds to win the title.

They also release the photograph of a dead man believed to be a victim of McArthur in the hopes the public will help identify him. And Chief Mark Saunders initiated an internal review that will become public, and has called for some form of public inquiry.

Teams have been forced to adapt to defending Curry and not having to make that call in the scouting report makes for a simplified game plan - no matter who the Warriors face in the first round. But by agreeing to a discounted deal, the former Oklahoma City Thunder forward allowed the Warriors to retain Shaun Livingston and Andre Igoudala.

"Financially, obviously, what I wanted to do past year, it made sense", Durant told the Athletic in March.

Last summer Durant signed a two-year, $51 million deal, which was about $10 million less than what his max contract would have been.

Stephen Curry's injury and the Golden State Warriors' recent sloppy play has some teams believing they are more vulnerable than ever. I'm sure here soon I'll want to sign a long-term deal just to feel stable.

According to ESPN, the 2 overall pick of the 2007 draft could sign a four-year max contract worth around $158 million or he could sign a two-year deal with a player option for the 2019-20 season. "That's a bridge too far for me, but anyway..."

The MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals, Durant is averaging 26.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists and a career-high 1.8 blocks per game this season. Each year of his deal could escalate.

When the Warriors signed Kevin Durant in 2016, there was a prevailing belief that they were injury-proof - meaning they had enough talent that even if one of their best players got hurt, they could still succeed. Durant could earn $35 million next season.
