Kevin Durant will reportedly decline his player option for the 2017-18 season in order to renegotiate his contract with the Warriors to make it easier for them to re-sign Andre Iguodala this summer.
Durant is reportedly willing to take roughly a $4 million discount in order to let the dynasty in Golden State continue, and this move will help the Dubs invoke their Bird rights on an Iguodala deal that will be competitive with other offers he'll receive on the open market. It's currently believed that Durant will sign another two-year deal with a player option on Year-2, and it'll be interesting to see if Stephen Curry is also willing to sign at a discount in order to keep this team together.

In an interview during the Warriors championship parade, Kevin Durant said "it's going to be even better next year."

He sure loved winning a title and KD certainly has enough from his off-court money. General manager Bob Myers talked a lot about a meeting in the Hamptons to get KD to join up, and it sure seems like the Warriors have this thing ready to go for a long time. KD is actually quite nice, as it turns out.

Kevin Durant was named the Finals MVP after he won his first NBA title with a 129-120 Game 5 win over the Cavaliers on Monday.

He dropped 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting from the field with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers, but his defense on LeBron James was just as crucial to the Warriors success. Durant is a free agent this summer, but he's not going anywhere and he said that he's willing to take a discount to keep the Warriors core together -- Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala are also free agents. KD will be 29 in September and has been one of the best players in fantasy over the last decade.

Kevin Durant scored 35 points during a Game 4 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The Warriors have a 3-1 lead, so hopefully the internet can come up with some new jokes this weekend. As for KD, he played well yet again and has now scored at least 30 points in each of the four NBA Finals games. He also hit the 3,000-point mark for his playoffs career, becoming the 25th player ever to do so. Yes, the Warriors have a 3-1 lead, but this time they have arguably the best pure scorer of all time.
Jun 10 - 12:16 AM

Kevin Durant hit a clutch 3-pointer on Wednesday to help Golden State earn a 3-0 lead in the Finals, finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

Durant made 10-of-18 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs tonight, with one steal and one block, and his two-way play has been essential to the Warriors' postseason dominance -- they've yet to lose a playoff game this season, which is unprecedented. KD and the Warriors can sweep the Finals (and the playoffs) with one more victory in Cleveland on Friday.
Jun 8 - 12:25 AM

Kevin Durant had 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks, three steals and four 3-pointers on Sunday, helping the Warriors take a 2-0 lead over the Cavs in the Finals.

Durant joined Tim Duncan as the only players with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and five blocks in a Finals game. His oft-overlooked defense was incredible tonight, and he was no less impressive on offense, making 13-of-22 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs and 4-of-8 threes. The Cavs get a few days off to scheme for Durant and the Warriors' surreal offense prior to Game 3 in Cleveland on Wednesday.
Jun 4 - 11:01 PM

Kevin Durant torched the Cavs during a 113-91 blowout Game 1 win on Thursday, scoring 38 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, three 3-pointers and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

He may be just a tad better than Harry B, you know. Durant had a whopping six dunks in the first half of this game, which already broke his previous career high in a playoff game (four). The Warriors just cleaned up in the paint with 56 points in that area, which had a lot to do with their 27 fast-break points and getting a ridiculous 45 shots within three feet tonight. Durant also did a nice job on the defensive end to make him the clear leader for the 2017 Finals MVP after one game. The Warriors also become the first team ever to start a postseason 13-0 and it feels like they'll be extending that on Sunday.
Jun 2 - 12:06 AM

Kevin Durant is "willing" to take less than the maximum contract extension with the Warriors this summer according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

Durant has already committed his future to the Warriors and will likely sign at a slight discount if it helps the franchise keep their core intact this summer -- Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are all hitting free agency and Curry may sign a five-year "supermax" contract. Durant reportedly hasn't decided how he will structure his next contract, but Shelburne believes he will sign another two-year deal with a player option for the second season. For now, his focus will be on Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

Kevin Durant said he's still dealing with some "nicks and bruises" from the physical play in the postseason.

He added he feels good despite this minor injury concern. The Warriors have over a week off, so KD should be getting close to 100 percent for Game 1 on Thursday. Durant has been ridiculously efficient in the playoffs, posting a 67.3 true shooting percentage. According to Las Vegas gambling sites, he's the favorite to land the Finals MVP with Stephen Curry right behind him.
May 26 - 7:59 PM

Kevin Durant made it clear that he's enjoyed his time with the Warriors.

"I made the 100 percent correct decision, win or lose," Durant said. "I feel like this is the place I was supposed to be. I appreciate everything I’ve done before this. But I’m here now, and I feel like it’s a great spot for me to be." Durant was non-committal when asked if he would exercise his $27.7 million option for the 2017-18 season, but added that he has no intention of leaving. Don't expect much drama if he opts out this summer.

Kevin Durant put on an offensive clinic during a Game 3 120-108 win over the Spurs on Saturday, scoring 33 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block, three 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 38 minutes.

He was on fire in the third quarter with 19 points in that frame, scoring the majority of those points in contested situations. According to ESPN, KD scored against eight different defenders, so coach Gregg Popovich just didn't have an answer. This was his third 30-point, 10-board game in these playoffs to get him to 16 in his career. There's obviously nothing to worry about from that calf injury from the first round and the Warriors clearly played it right to take it easy on him last month. This team is just so dangerous and also ties the record for most consecutive wins to start a postseason with 11 straight. They'll go for the sweep on Monday.
May 20 - 11:45 PM

Kevin Durant scored 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting in Tuesday's easy 136-100 Game 2 win over the Spurs.

Durant landed on LaMarcus Aldridge's foot after a shot attempt and was lucky to walk away without an injury -- it looked like LMA slid his foot under KD just like Zaza Pachulia did to Kawhi Leonard in Game 1, so he was fortunate that he didn't roll his ankle. Durant only played 28 minutes due to the lopsided score, so he's not in any danger of missing Game 3 on Saturday. He added three assists, two rebounds, one block and two triples. You can check out the incident in the link below.
May 17 - 12:05 AM

Kevin Durant scored 34 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal, four blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Spurs in a Game 1 win on Sunday.

He dominated to close this game out, but you could definitely chalk it up to the Kawhi Leonard (ankle) injury. In the 17 minutes with Kawhi out, KD scored 23 points on a 33.7 usage rate and an 85.1 true shooting percentage to get him to a +78.1 net rating. When Kawhi was on in 22 minutes, KD had 11 points on a 43.1 TS% for a -29.4 net rating. If Kawhi is limited, Durant could be eating like he has for most of this postseason. Regardless, he's playing lights out right now.
May 14 - 7:02 PM

Kevin Durant said the season opener against the Spurs "seems like years ago."

The Spurs thumped the Warriors in the opener 129-100 with red-hot Jonathon Simmons scoring 20, but a lot has changed. Durant is basically saying the chemistry for the Warriors wasn't there, and also KD didn't play in the other two games. The Warriors are playing their best defense all year and they're still not hitting all cylinders on offense.
May 13 - 3:23 PM

Kevin Durant scored 38 points in magnificent fashion during a 102-91 Game 3 win in Utah on Saturday, making 15-of-26 from the field with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

KD is still not nice. The Warriors really haven't been feeding KD like he's used to in big games, but not today. In fact, he only had four isolation possessions so far in his four previous games in the playoffs, which is way down from his 5.3 iso possessions per game in the postseason last year. He also made all six of his fadeaway shots today and was making tough shots all game. Basically, those wild "Warriors are better without KD" scorching hot takes could probably be put on ice for good. He won this game for them against a terrific defensive team. It's really hard to imagine the Warriors losing one game let alone four.
