Kevin Durant re-signs with Golden State Warriors

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

Anthony Slater reported on Saturday that there are "rumblings" that Durant will sign another short term deal with Golden State, giving him some flexibility in his future and also helping the Warriors in the long term in another way.

Durant will likely become a free agent in 2019 and sign a multi-year deal starting around $38 million. The contract will keep a Warriors team together that obliterated just about everyone in 2017-18 en route to their third National Basketball Association championship in four years.

Last year, Gordon Hayward, perhaps the biggest name free agent available, waited until 4th July before making a decision to join the Boston Celtics. Deep into the tax, that sacrifice by Durant will save the Warriors as much as $29.1 million in actual payroll costs.

The two-time Finals MVP agreed to take a pay cut in his last two negotiations with Golden State to give them the opportunity to keep their core together. James agreed to a four-year deal worth $154 million, meaning his streak of eight consecutive Eastern Conference championships - four with Miami, four with the Cavs - will end next year. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here. He has a player option for the second season worth $31.5 million. Marc Stein of The New York Times said that Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season.

Mexico and Brazil's upcoming match moved to FOX 5 Atlanta
This is a courtesy reminder that Brazil lost a World Cup semifinal match in 2014 to eventual champion Germany 7-1. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review.

Also part of that series were Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, James Harden and Derrick Rose, among others. Now he's going to make an average of $40 million for what should be declining years. The Los Angeles Clippers are heading in a different direction and Jordan opted out of his contract in order to sign with Dallas.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

He's led the Warriors to The Finals every season during his tenure, delivering three out of four championships. Center/Forward Nikola Jokic was signed to a max-deal for five years worth $146.5 million and guard Will Barton to a four-year deal worth $54 million. The 2011 NBA MVP has agreed to a one-year deal worth almost $2.4 million to stay with Minnesota, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said.

The reality, of course, beats the alternative, but one could argue that instead of treading water, the Rockets took a step backward by losing Ariza, and there's no obvious way to replace his impact going into next season.
