Kevin Durant Will Reportedly Opt Out, Restructure Contract With Warriors

Kevin Durant Will Reportedly Opt Out, Restructure Contract With Warriors

But those two teams - those matchup nightmares and worst-case scenarios for the Warriors - can't face Golden State until the Western Conference Finals, should they advance past Houston, who themselves will face a full-strength Minnesota team that stands a chance of making things a bit interesting in the first round.

In this edition of the Warriors Report, we go through the top Golden State Warriors news and rumors including the report that Kevin Durant is expected to opt out of his contract at the end of the season.

The discounted deal permitted the defending champion Warriors to re-sign swingman Andre Iguodala and backup guard Shaun Livingston.

Durant was set to make $26.2 million next year, but by opting out he'll be able to sign a larger contract with Golden State. He went on to help the Warriors win the 2017 National Basketball Association title, and he was named Finals MVP.

Last year's NBA Finals MVP will decline his player option for the 2018-19 season and enter the free agency market, turning down a salary of $26.2 million. The financial terms of the deal raised eyebrows as a player of Durant's caliber could have commanded around $10 million more on a max salary. I'm sure here soon I'll want to sign a long-term deal just to feel stable. "It has yet to be decided what contractual route Durant will take, sources say, but there are no real incentives - for himself or for the team - to take such a drastic reduction in pay this time around". "That's a bridge too far for me, but anyway..."

The nine-time All-Star made much less (around $9 million annually) than he could have had he signed a max contract. Durant's five-year income breakdown would be $37.8 million, $40.8 million, $43.8 million, $46.8 million and $49.9 million. He quietly put together a season every bit as stellar as a year ago, averaging 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while making 51.6 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from the 3-point line (he shot 88.9 percent from the foul line, leaving him five free throws short of the coveted 50-40-90 threshold).
