The Finals MVP did it to help Golden State.
The reigning NBA Finals MVP won his first title with Warriors previous year.
Kevin Durant will enter the free-agent market this offseason but likely won't be available for long.
He can sign a two-year deal with a 2019-20 player option in which the first-year earnings would be $30 million and the option year worth $31.5 million increasing the salary cap from $101 million (2018-19) to $108 million (2019-20). The discount allowed the team to re-sign Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala, something general manager Bob Myers appreciated. Heck, he took a $1.5 million pay cut from the season before, which is something you don't see too often from a star player in his prime.
However, he will refuse his $26.2 million option so he can restructure a new contract with Golden State.Читайте также: Democrats say no threats to Pruitt, urge oversight hearing on EPA spending
ESPN Front Office Insider Bobby Marks dissected Durant's options for this upcoming offseason.
The Warriors have looked vulnerable, unlike any other time during their three-plus-year reign with the NBA's top record and their struggles at both ends of the court have been well-documented, clearly lacking the same fire that made them such a tough team to beat.
A four-year max contract for $158 million ($39.5 million average annual value, with each year's salary rising).
Durant infamously joined the Warriors from Western Conference rivals Oklahoma City Thunder in the summer of 2016 as he helped Stephen Curry and company perform a clean sweep into the finals of the National Basketball Association playoffs a year ago with a 12-0 postseason record. In this state, in which they are 7-10 in their last 17 games and Curry is hurt and they just lost by 1,000 points last night. His offensive game is still among the best in the league, as Durant is averaging 26.4 points and 5.4 assists per game.
With Curry out, it's up to Kevin Durant to play like a superstar.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
