Green, Durant, Curry urge GM Myers to sign former Warriors scoring machine

Draymond Green, Kevin Durant pushing for Warriors to sign Jamal Crawford [report]

Durant will sign a two-year deal with the Warriors that includes a player option for after next season, according to multiple reports.

Golden State has won back-to-back championships and Durant has earned two straight Finals MVP awards during his time with the team.

Kevin Durant will return to the Golden State Warriors next season.

"This is a friendship decision to stay in OKC as much as anything", an executive told the New York Times' Marc Stein of how much Westbrook influenced George's decision. If so, it would save the Warriors north of $5 million against next year's cap, increasing the likelihood that the champs use their mid-level exception in free agency.

The Golden State Warriors don't have a lot of needs - at least not in the starting lineup - but the reigning National Basketball Association champions will, as always, look to upgrade their bench in free agency. That largesse allowed Golden State to retain key role players Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, who were free agents.

The Houston Rockets also made sure their backcourt wouldn't undergo any big renovations by reportedly bringing Paul back into the fold on a four-year, $160 million max contract, per Wojnarowski.

But if James is going to be the next superstar to follow in the legacy that Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson built for the Lakers, it's already fairly evident that not everyone in the National Basketball Association will be thrilled.

He averaged 10.3 points in 20.7 minutes for Minnesota last season. But going to L.A. on Saturday doesn't necessarily provide any hint about his destination, since James has homes in Southern California.

Thunder • Forward Jerami Grant has agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with a player option the third year.
