Steve Kerr, Golden State Warriors finalizing rich extension

Marc Stein of The New York Times said that Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season.

"Next two years will be the most interesting for the Warriors front office", read one comment.

The results these past 4 years really speak for themselves, and it's going to be interesting to learn just how long and lucrative of a commitment the franchise makes to him.

So Golden State gets the second-best player in the world to return on a discount, probably saves close to $20 million in tax penalties in the process, and potentially positions itself to add a meaningful bench player for good measure.

The Warriors signed DeMarcus Cousins to an astonishingly cheap one-year, $5.3 million deal. The Warriors did not re-sign center JaVale McGee, who announced Sunday night he will join James with the Lakers on a one-year deal.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

Jino Ferrer, Country Marketing Manager of Nike Philippines expressed, "We are thrilled to have Kevin Durant with us this time around for the first time ever in Manila. He did us a great service", Myers said in mid-June. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here. He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. He will sign a two-year max contract with an option for the 2019-2020 season.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Kevin Durant is staying with the Golden State Warriors.

James' media ventures that include everything from product endorsements to running his own production company take place in Los Angeles.

With Durant staying, the Warriors will likely book their fifth straight trip to the NBA Finals. Unfortunately, the Boston Celtics thwarted those plans by sending the Cavaliers fishing early in just six games of the second round.

National Basketball Association free agency begins on Sunday.

"He wants to be here, of course", Kleiman told Bay Area News Group last month.

Durant, a nine-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points and 6.8 rebounds last season. Which of those players have been signed so far and by whom?

Second, Durant then turned his play around in the NBA Finals, but it did not come without controversy. He shot 51 percent from the field, 42 percent from 3-point range and 89 percent at the charity stripe in 68 games.

Clint Capela (restricted): He's emerged as one of the league's top young big men after averaging 13.9 points, 10.8 rebounds and almost 2 blocks per game with the Rockets.

Golden State's biggest challenge in the Western Conference, the Houston Rockets, also reached an agreement to hold on to a key piece as the NBA's free agency negotiations officially began.
