Kevin Durant Intends to Sign Two-Year Deal With Warriors

  • Report: Steve Kerr, Warriors finalizing contract extension

The Denver Nuggets added to the huge night of spending out West when it got Will Barton to commit to staying in what will be a four-year deal that could be worth more than $50 million if he doesn't opt out a year early, and that move comes on the cusp of the Nuggets getting talented big man Nikola Jokic to stay in what will be a five-year deal worth almost $150 million. James has been linked to multiple teams in free agency, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers and 76ers. He is from Farmingdale, California, which is not far from Los Angeles.

Julius Randle (restricted): He's quietly turned into a promising young player with the Lakers, averaging 16.1 points and 8 rebounds last season while shooting almost 56 percent from the field. Ariza's impact on the Houston Rockets will be missed there. His NBA career remains best known for his appearance as a member of the Phoenix Suns in the 2017 dunk contest at All-Star weekend, an invite that came even though he had spent the bulk of his time that season in the G League.

For the second consecutive year, the Warriors will have locked up one of their star players with a max contract.

After winning two National Basketball Association championships with the Warriors, Durant is expected to stay with Golden State with a two-year deal. Durant won the Finals MVP award by a 7-4 vote over Stephen Curry, as determined by a select panel of Warriors and Cavaliers beat writers as well as national NBA writers and broadcasters. He averaged 26.4 PPG, 6.8 RPG, and 5.4 APG last season. That would allow him to sign a five-year maximum contract projected to be worth $221 million.

Houston Rockets star and recently named Most Valuable Player (MVP) James Harden's jersey ranked sixth.

Thunder • Forward Jerami Grant has agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with a player option the third year. This time, it won't happen. He reportedly opted out of his contract with Minnesota in early May.

Marcus Smart (restricted): The Celtics guard is not a great shooter, but he can affect the game in many different ways.

The Philadelphia 76ers are getting to make their pitch to LeBron James. Marc Stein of The New York Times said that Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season. Rose played well for Tom Thibodeau late in the season after the Cleveland Cavaliers let him go. A person familiar with the terms says Gay has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal to be back in silver and black next season.

Spurs • Rudy Gay is returning to San Antonio. Gay averaged 11.5 PPG last season. He shot 41.5 percent from the floor overall and 33.1 percent from beyond the arc.

The Warriors, meanwhile, were quiet in the opening day-and-a-half of free agency.
