Kevin Durant wouldn't comment about possibly taking less money this summer to help fit others into the salary cap.
"We'll figure that out when the time comes," Durant said. He has a max $27.7 million cap number on his player option for next year, so that's a big chunk of the raised cap for the 2017-18 season. Durant is having his most efficient season as a pro and looks to be enjoying his time in the Bay Area so far. Feb 18 - 6:33 PM

Coach Steve Kerr told reporters that he would "definitely consider" playing Russell Westbrook alongside Kevin Durant in Sunday's All-Star Game.

The potential pairing of Westbrook and Durant will be one of the more interesting subplots in the 2017 All-Star contest. Any possible interaction between the two former teammates and friends will surely generate plenty of headlines. Steph Curry believes that Draymond Green will help ease the tensions and break the ice in the Western Conference locker room. "[Green] is going to come in and just probably crack jokes and do something real loud and make it a locker room scene," said Curry.

Kevin Durant scored 21 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, four blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 32 minutes on Wednesday.

Golden State lost to Denver on Monday, but their streak of 131 games without a consecutive loss was kept alive in a lopsided win vs. the Kings tonight. Klay Thompson blew up for 35 points, Steph Curry added 13 points, nine assists and six rebounds, and the team didn't even need Draymond Green after his early ejection. It's good to be the team with the league's best record, most efficient offense, and third-most efficient defense.

Kevin Durant emerged victorious in his first game as a visitor at Oklahoma City during a 130-114 win on Saturday, scoring 34 points with nine rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.

The boo birds were out in full force and the OKC fans were chanting "cupcake" all game long. Durant and Russell Westbrook were also getting into it with some chatter, but Durant said after the game that it was a fun game. KD has torched his former team in the three outings this season, averaging 37.7 points, 9.3 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.3 blocks and 5.0 treys in those three wins. He also said he's expecting to hear some boos in the next game on Mar. 20. KD is fantasy's No. 1 player this year.
Feb 12 - 12:01 AM

Kevin Durant made just 5-of-14 from the field for 24 points with five rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He'll be headed to OKC coming off one of his worst stretches of the season. In his last five games, Durant averaged just 20.0 points, 8.0 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.4 treys on 41.3 percent from the field -- that's pretty good for a normal star NBA player. Las Vegas is taking bets on how Durant and Russell Westbrook will interact, but you can bet all of the NBA will be watching on Saturday night. KD is expected to get plenty of boos.
Feb 11 - 12:23 AM

Kevin Durant scored 22 points during a 123-92 win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, seven assists, one block, three steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He made 9-of-16 from the field to snap out of his mini three-game slump. Durant's 37.8 percent from the field to start his February is almost 20 percent worse than his 56.5 percent from January. One other interesting aspect is KD handing out seven dimes per game over his last six. In his previous five, all seven of his assists to Stephen Curry have led to two-pointers -- Curry is actually 0-of-7 from deep off KD passes in that stretch. Random passing stats aside, KD is cruising as fantasy's top player in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 2:54 AM

Kevin Durant scored 10 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal five blocks and three turnovers in 42 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

It took until February, but KD is actually in a mini slump. In the last three games, Durant averaged just 18.0 points, 8.3 boards, 6.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.0 treys on just 37.8 percent from the field -- only 3-of-20 from deep. You know someone is a good scorer when a three-game slump is his longest of the year. KD is actually really nice.
Feb 5 - 2:17 AM

Kevin Durant hit 8-of-19 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws for 26 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in 37 minutes of Thursday's 133-120 win over the Clippers.

KD was primed for a big night when it was announced that Draymond Green would be out with a shoulder injury and he lived up to the hype. The Warriors have now won five straight and 16 of their last 18 games, as KD continues to be one of the best fantasy players in the world, despite playing alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. And while he didn't have a block or offensive rebound, he also didn't commit a turnover tonight.
Feb 3 - 1:14 AM

Kevin Durant notched 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes on Wednesday.

It's the seventh time this season that Durant has been held under 20 points, thanks to the sub-par efficiency, but he made up for it in other categories. The Warriors scored 41 points in the first quarter tonight and they lead the league with 14 quarters of at least 40 points this season. That is, for lack of a better term, bonkers. Durant and company will look for their fifth straight win vs. the Clippers on Thursday.
Feb 2 - 1:18 AM

Kevin Durant carried the Warriors to a win in Portland on Sunday with a game-high 33 points on 13-of-26 shooting, adding 10 rebounds, six assists and one block in 36 minutes.

Durant appeared to grab his left hamstring at one point, but he stayed in the game and showed no signs of discomfort the rest of the way. He turned the ball over seven times tonight but made up for it with a series of clutch rebounds, field goals and defensive plays during the tough road win. He may lose some votes while playing alongside Steph Curry (who was out tonight due to illness), but Durant is firmly in the MVP conversation this season.
Jan 30 - 12:10 AM

Kevin Durant scored 23 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block, three 3-pointers and no turnovers in 29 minutes.

He was 9-of-11 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, so 23 points on 12 possessions is just not fair. Durant is already coming in scorching hot in his previous five, averaging 29.4 points, 7.4 boards, 4.4 assists, 2.2 blocks, 1.2 steals and 2.0 treys. He's having his most efficient season ever, which is saying something for arguable the most efficient high-volume scorer of all time. KD is fantasy's No. 1 player in season-long leagues this year.
Jan 28 - 11:15 PM

The Warriors bounced back with a win in Charlotte on Wednesday, anchored by Kevin Durant's 33 points, five rebounds, two assists and four blocks.

Golden State was coming off a rough loss in Miami, in which Dion Waiters made a very tough game-winning 3-pointer, but it didn't take long for them to get another win. Durant scored 16 points in the decisive fourth quarter, making 11-of-20 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs overall, and his offensive efficiency this season continues to be off the charts.
Jan 26 - 12:23 AM

Kevin Durant scored 27 points on 12-of-23 shooting in a loss to the Heat on Monday.

The Warriors had their seven-game winning streak snapped by a Dion Waiters 3-pointer in the final seconds after KD tied the game at 102 apiece with a driving slam. Durant only hit 1-of-8 triples tonight, but added six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes. He's still the No. 1 overall player in standard fantasy leagues and we don't see that changing anytime soon.
Jan 24 - 12:44 AM

Kevin Durant posted his 17th double-double of the season on Sunday, racking up 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer, three steals, two blocks and one turnover in 29 minutes.

If there’s one negative thing we could say about Durant, it’s that he’s been a pretty awful screen setter for the Dubs this season. Luckily, screen setting is not a category in fantasy hoops, and in all that statistical categories that matter, The Duranchula is an absolute monster. He's hitting career-highs in boards (8.5), blocks (1.7) and field goal percentage (54.6) which are just a few reasons why he ranks No. 1 overall this year.
Jan 22 - 2:30 PM

Kevin Durant was on his A game during a 125-108 win in Houston on Friday, making 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

He was just awesome on the defensive end in what has been an underrated part of his game in his career. The Warriors also made all of their shots off KD passes today. Obviously, it's about his offense and you may need a microscope to spot a KD slump. Durant has turned in a true shooting percentage below 60 in two consecutive games in just one instance this year. That and the stats across the board make him fantasy's No. 1 player this season.
