Bob Myers on Kevin Durant Contract: ‘Whatever he wants’

Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Meyers confirms he will be giving Kevin Durant any type of contract he wants in free agency.

“Whatever he wants,” Myers said, laughing. “Sometimes you don’t negotiate.”

Durant will opt out of his player option to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. But he and his business partner, Rich Kleiman, have repeatedly said he will re-sign with the Warriors after winning two NBA championships and two Finals MVPs since joining the team two years ago.

It is not clear, however, if Durant will sign a deal at one-year deal as he did in the 2016 offseason, or if he will seek a multi-year deal. Last summer, Durant took a $10 million paycut so the Warriors could retain veterans Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston while also acquiring Nick Young.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
