Durant to Re-sign with Warriors

Five free-agency questions for the Warriors Kevin Durant’s contract length veteran minimum options and more

The Warriors nearly used this very strategy last season, but opted to sign JaVale McGee to the last available roster spot - signing him to the veteran's minimum, but paying more than three times his contract's worth, already in the repeater luxury tax.

The Warriors signed DeMarcus Cousins to an astonishingly cheap one-year, $5.3 million deal. It's an out in case the good situation he has eventually stops working out.

Durant will make $30 million in 2018-19.

Kerr just completed the fourth year of his current 5-year, $25M deal, capped off with his third NBA Championship in the past 4 years.

Riding this train of thought into fantasy land, if Kevin Durant were to shock the world and consider other teams in free agency to make the Warriors mortal again, which spots would be the best free agency destinations for him?

I guess we should be happy for the Thunder?

Paul tweeted a message "UNFINISHED BUSINESS RUN IT BACK" to confirm his return.

And two other big names in free agency - Oklahoma City's Paul George and Houston's Chris Paul - have chose to stay put. Giving him that money for those years instead of re-signing Ariza is puzzling.

The first domino to fall was Paul George back to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a four-year deal worth $137 million.

If the number is anywhere near that estimate, Melo is gone.

Terms were not available, but the Grizzlies are limited to smaller moves unless they can unload Chandler Parsons, who has $49 million owed to him over the next two seasons. After trading Harden and losing Durant, there was no doubt some serious catharsis in someone agreeing to stick with Westbrook for the long-term. He is one of the great scorers in the league.

LeBron James (player option): Still the free-agent grand prize at age 33, James has shown few signs of wear and tear despite 15 stellar seasons in the league.

There is some mutual interest between the Warriors and Jamal Crawford in a potential minimum deal, sources say.

It comes after New York Knicks president Steve Mills admitted this week his team would have room for one max contract in next summer, labelling the Knicks' prized asset, Kristaps Porzingis, "a magnet" before stating: "Stars are going to want to come to us". Paul was a pitbull and a vauable leader previous year for the Houston Rockets.

Golden State swept the Cavaliers to earn the National Basketball Association title last season, its third championship in four years.

Rockets • Gerald Green and his hometown Houston Rockets are staying together.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors waits for play during a 127-123 overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 29, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. I'm gonna coach here for a long time.
