Kevin Durant To Sign 2-Year Max Deal With Golden State

Report: Steve Kerr, Warriors finalizing contract extension

Since joining Golden State, Kevin Durant's free agency has been as anticlimactic as the Warriors' title pursuits.

In terms of fine print, the two years are technically one year plus a player option for the second, allowing Durant maximum flexibility to seek out an even fatter five-year max deal later on down the line. If Durant opts out of his contract after next season and immediately signs a $200 million contract, then all the worrying about his future in Golden State becomes a moot point.

Kerr, who has led the Warriors to three National Basketball Association titles in his four years with Golden State, and general manager Bob Myers both indicated earlier this month an agreement is imminent.

Chris Paul is staying with the Houston Rockets.

James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs.

"Last year, a vouching from stars Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, and coach Steve Kerr, led to the Warriors taking a flyer on Nick Young". After playing last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Crawford chose to opt out of his contract and test free agency. He has a player option for the second season worth $31.5 million.

The Phoenix Suns signed forward Trevor Ariza to a one-year deal worth $15 million.

"I'm not saying he's going there, I'm saying that they are absolutely planning their offseason around him".

Coinciding with Durant's Manila visit will be the release of a new colorway of his shoe called "Peach Jam", which will be released exclusively at Titan Park Fort and Nike Park Fort.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is expected to get a lot of attention in the coming weeks, as he is set to make a decision on whether to stay with the Cavs or sign elsewhere. In 25 games played last season with both Minnesota and Cleveland, Derrick Rose averaged 8.1 PPG, 1.4 RPG, and 1.5 APG. Throughout the series, Durant averaged 28.8 points while shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range, along with 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists. Instead, he will make $10 million next season on a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

Terms were not announced, but the deal is likely for the league minimum given the Blazers' salary cap constraints.
