Kevin Durant's Contract Plans For Offseason Are Revealed

Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors vs Chicago Bulls NBA 17012018

The Golden State Warriors are the defending National Basketball Association champions, and returned every major contributor from a team that went 16-1 in the postseason a year ago.

The Warriors forward intends to decline his player option for the 2018-19 season and become an unrestricted free agent, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources. Because he turned down more money, the Warriors were able to retain core veterans Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. The Warriors shelled out cash for Durant, but not as much as one would expect-he accepted a two-year, $51.25 million deal, though he clearly could have garnered a max contract elsewhere.

It was the first time Madrid was down 3-0 in the Champions League since losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2008-09. Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.

The All-Star has made a decision to opt-out of his current contract of $26 million to restructure a new deal with the Warriors, league sources told ESPN.

After the Warriors were blown out by the Utah Jazz 119-79 on Tuesday in their final game of the season, Durant discussed the team's rough sledding to finish. I'm sure here soon I'll want to sign a long-term deal just to feel stable.

A four-year max contract for $158 million ($39.5 million average annual value, with each year's salary rising). "But I'm enjoying every moment of it, so I'm not trying to look too far down the line". He quietly put together a season every bit as stellar as past year, averaging 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while making 51.6 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from the 3-point line (he shot 88.9 percent from the foul line, leaving him five free throws short of the coveted 50-40-90 threshold).

It'll be a postseason rematch of old friends this weekend, when the Gregg Popovich and San Antonio Spurs come the Bay Area to face Steve Kerr and the Warriors in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
