This year's free agency class is replete with players who can do the same thing.
"Next two years will be the most interesting for the Warriors front office", read one comment. He'll be due a raise from his $6 million salary from a year ago, and that could be a challenge for Miami, which is trying to avoid paying a luxury tax. That move saves the Warriors $5.6 million. He has a player option for the second season worth $31.5 million. According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, that now includes three-time Sixth Man of the Year victor Jamal Crawford.
"They'll have Durant's Bird rights and will definitely give him five years max after he opts out again". He averaged a career-high 11.2 points past year while shooting almost 40 percent from three-point range. "He did us a great service", Myers said in mid-June. A person familiar with the terms says Gay has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal to be back in silver and black next season. It's not to diminish the significance of that move for the Thunder, who took the risk in trading for George last summer when they knew he could be a one-year rental and should be applauded for creating a team and culture attractive enough to lure him back.
Durant's salary for the next season is $5.3 million less than he would have received had he agreed to a four-year contract. The report also mentioned that the Warriors showed interest in signing Crawford last offseason as well.
Then, the Warriors won another one earlier this month - and Durant hoisted the MVP trophy a second time.
In Games 1 and 2 against the Rockets, Durant averaged 37.5 points on 55.1 percent shooting. Moreover, it was Durant who has hit big shots down the stretch in both of those title runs, which is why he was named Finals MVP in consecutive seasons.
Steve Kerr has won 3 championships in his first 4 seasons as an National Basketball Association head coach, and the Golden State Warriors are making sure he remains their head coach for the foreseeable future. He erupted for 43 points in Game 3 of the series, which virtually took the fight out of Cleveland. "That was just for the media". Golden State also reportedly signed coach Steve Kerr to a contract extension this week. Essentially, Durant is putting subliminal pressure on the Warriors again to spend the mid-level. When Fitzgerald revisited the free-agency topic later on stage with Durant, he shook his head with a hint of annoyance.
