Kevin Durant could take less money to help the Warriors...again

Kevin Durant could take less money to help the Warriors...again

But I will tell you what I did hear, is that behind the scenes Kevin Durant is like 'why would I do that?

Durant will be paid $30.5 million this coming season, about $5 million less than he could have commanded if the deal was structured differently.

Kevin Durant intends to sign a two-year, $61.5 million max contract with the Golden State Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors aren't expecting any surprises this summer.

From a financial perspective, the Dubs can offer KD more money than anyone, and after leaving money on the table last summer so Golden State could afford to re-sign Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, he's due for a massive payday. Haynes had reported Durant planned to opt out of the final year of his deal in order to finalize a contract with more lucrative terms.

Even now, the programme is estimated to cost €1.6bn (£1.4bn; $1.8bn) a year to run, with €1.75bn of investment up front. France will reinstate the mandatory National Service for all 16-year-olds.

James spent the week vacationing in Anguilla, and hopped aboard a private Gulfstream jet in the morning to fly to the Los Angeles area. But that doesn't mean Durant is looking for the long-term deal many will seek in the free agent market.

But if James is going to be the next superstar to follow in the legacy that Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson built for the Lakers, it's already fairly evident that not everyone in the National Basketball Association will be thrilled by the development.

The Lakers are the favorite to win the LeBron James free agency sweepstakes, and the team is reportedly trying to complete a trade with the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard in an effort to ensure James will sign in July.

Crawford, 38, has spent nearly half his life in the National Basketball Association, playing for seven teams including the Warriors in 2008-09.
