on

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant will decline his player option for the 2017-18 season and technically become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but he will re-sign with the team, league sources tell ESPN.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP will turn down a player-option salary of approximately $28 million to momentarily hit free-agency with the intentions of taking less than the max he’s eligible for as a 10-year veteran in order to improve the Warriors’ chances of re-signing reserve stud Andre Iguodala, league sources told ESPN.
