Kevin Durant seeking one-year deal with player option from Warriors

Kevin Durant seeking one-year deal with player option from Warriors

Steve Kerr, who led Golden State to two straight National Basketball Association titles, has agreed to a deal with the National Basketball Association club which will make him one of the highest paid coaches, ESPN reported on Friday night. Certainly, the team is looking at re-signing youngsters Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw after both played somewhat large roles over the past two seasons.

"Next two years will be the most interesting for the Warriors front office", read one comment. By the time he arrived around midday - after his flight plan was tracked online - reporters and at least one news helicopter were waiting for the Cavaliers star, who made a decision to become an unrestricted free agent and not opt in to a $35.6 million deal for next season.

And all those clubs - Golden State, Oklahoma City, Houston, the Lakers, even Denver by locking up Nikola Jokic for $150 million and Will Barton for $54 million - could say they were thrilled.

The Warriors signed DeMarcus Cousins to an astonishingly cheap one-year, $5.3 million deal. So did plenty of other players, and by the time the moratorium was 2 hours old, almost $700 million worth of deals had been agreed upon, based on figures confirmed to the AP by people involved in the various decisions.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate". I can't help but think that it would have kept Ariza around - the Rockets had his Bird rights and likely balked at $15 million a year because of luxury tax concerns - and likely would have given the Rockets more roster flexibility in the future. But, Kevin Durant, look at what he did previous year for us. He did us a great service. He wants to compete for a title, which would make signing with the Warriors a very good decision. It might make him more money if he signs a long-term deal next summer instead, but could he have ulterior motives besides money?

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. But, he told ESPN during the NBA Finals he planned on re-signing with the Warriors.

Durant led the Warriors to their second consecutive title earlier this month after dismantling the Cleveland Cavaliers in four games.

Durant's visit has generated huge buzz among Filipino fans who are eager to see Durant, who compared to his first visit has become one of the NBA's biggest stars.
