Kevin Durant Offered 2 Year Deal Worth $53 Million From Golden State Warriors

2 min read

It looks like the core group from the NBA champions Golden State Warriors will remain in tact. Sources are currently reporting that Kevin Durant is set to accept a 2 year deal worth $53 million. The deal will have a player option for the 2nd year, with which Durant is expected to opt-out once again.

If the contract is indeed worth $53 million it would mean that Kevin Durant is accepting approximately $9 million below his maximum value. By opting out of this contract, Durant aided the Warriors in their goal of re-signing Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. Also reportedly resigned is David West. All three of these players were key in their reserve roles in the 2016/2017 season.

Golden State Warriors Core Players

The key players in the Championship team are now under contract, but another surprisingly good reserve player Javal McGee is still left unsigned. It’s being said that the Warriors are interested in bringing back McGee, but he is drawing interest from other teams, namely the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Warriors now have a bit more wiggle room to also sign other free agents. Some names that have been floating around are Nick Young, Vince Carter and even Zach Randolph. Nothing has materialized as yet regarding any of these players as they are also generating interest from other championship contender teams.

The offseason is definitely shaping up, and it will be interesting to see what the final rosters will be, especially for the defending champions Golden State Warriors.
