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.

Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Korver labored over a decision between the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, but his history and relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer played a significant role in his ultimate choice, league sources said.

The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta and was an All-Star there in 2015.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Bucks will incur a $1.6 million cap hit on Korver’s deal. The Phoenix Suns, who waived Korver earlier this month, will receive a $559,000 set-off on the $3.4 million they owe him.
