Kevin Durant Chooses The Golden State Warriors


Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant finally made his decision, announcing on The Players Tribune that he was signing a new two-year $54.3 million contract that is reported to have a Player Option in the second year.

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”

The Warriors have already started reaching out teams to off-load salary to create the cap space to consummate the deal.
