NBA: Kevin Durant Signs 2-Year/ $54 Million Deal With Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant Announce He’s Joining Steph Curry Signing with the Golden State Warriors.
Saying it has been “by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life,” Durant announced his decision Monday in a post on The Players’ Tribune.
He is expected to sign a two-year, $54.3 million contract, sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein. The deal would include a player option after the first year.
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant wrote. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.
“With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
The contract can be finalized July 7, when a leaguewide moratorium is lifted on signings and trades.
