Warriors Finalizing Contract Extension with Steve Kerr

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

When you're back-to-back NBA Champions, winners of three titles in four years, appeasing your franchise cornerstones, namely Kevin Durant and Draymond Green this offseason, to ensure their returns takes precedence. George told a party in Oklahoma City that he's staying with the Thunder, after agreeing to terms on what is a $137 million, four-year deal that comes with an option for the final season. Doing so will cost Durant almost $6 million for the 2018-19 season after already leaving money on the table in his contract with the Warriors from last summer. Now, it appears that there is a team with serious interest in signing him already. The assumption is that Durant is just trying to use smaller contracts to take advantage of a rising cap, but at the same time he's giving himself an out if he wanted to leave Golden State in the future. Durant will accept a max deal that will pay him $30 million for the 2018-19 season, but that is about $5 million less than if he had agreed to a two-year guaranteed deal that would have paid him about $35 million for the 2018-19 season. If he's really playing the long game here then he's setting himself up to one day make over $200 million through his early 30s.

I guess we should be happy for the Thunder? Durant reportedly will confirm that after free agency begins on July 1.

James spent the week vacationing in Anguilla, and hopped aboard a private Gulfstream jet in the morning to fly to the Los Angeles area.

Kevin Durant agreed to a one-plus-one deal, first reported by Haynes, taking a discount of around $5.6 million next season, according to The Athletic's Danny Leroux. So are Paul George and Chris Paul. Now he's going to make an average of $40 million for what should be declining years.

Last week, Anthony opted into the final year of his contract, worth $27.9 million.

She also commented that EA Vancouver is now working on something that's different from what they wanted to do with the game. I'm hoping to bring some people on board'.

Lowe says that Crawford may be looking for more than a minimum deal, but Golden State won't be the team that gives him more than the veteran minimum, which will be a decent number for the 18-year vet.

So, to sum the night up: A team that felt like it was on the precipice of winning a title just handcuffed themselves to Paul while letting a player critical to their successes previous year walk.

He has also won back-to-back NBA Finals MVP awards.

Trevor Ariza (unrestricted): A valuable forward who can stretch the floor, he's provided solid shooting and good defense for the Rockets over the past four seasons. This kind of deal is also known as a one-plus-one contract.
