Steve Kerr, Warriors finalizing contract extension

Steve Kerr, Warriors finalizing contract extension

Kevin Durant is staying put for now. He's led the Warriors to The Finals every season during his tenure, delivering three out of four championships.

A potential deal would see the silky ball-handler return to the team he played 54 games for in the 2008-09 season when he was traded by the New York Knicks.

A year after sacrificing almost $10 million in salary to help the Warriors fill out their roster, Durant will help the Warriors save in another way. The Warriors are staying patient to ensure they find the right pieces, a luxury afforded to them due to their all-time great core.

Kevin Durant intends to sign a 2-year deal with the Golden State Warriors.

The second year is at Baynes' option, meaning he could be a free agent again next summer. Myers added, "sometimes you don't negotiate". George re-signing for four years - despite the constant conversations about him going back home to Los Angeles and the Lakers - is perhaps as shocking as the Thunder trading for him in the first place.

Jordan agreed to sign with Dallas three years ago, then changed his mind and social media went beyond abuzz over what happened next. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here. He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.

Kerr, 52, just finished the fourth year of a five-year, $25 million contract he signed when he joined the Warriors in 2014. Durant was set to become a free agent this week.

This is the third time in eight years James has changed teams.

A person familiar with the discussion says LeBron James was in contact with the Cleveland Cavaliers when National Basketball Association free agency opened.

"He wants to be here, of course", Kleiman told Bay Area News Group last month.

Houston took Golden State to seven games in the Western Conference finals back in May. Which of those players have been signed so far and by whom? He erupted for 43 points in Game 3 of the series, which virtually took the fight out of Cleveland. He averaged a career-high 11.2 points past year while shooting almost 40 percent from three-point range.

-The Portland Trail Blazers opened free agency by reaching a one-year deal with guard Nik Stauskas, ESPN reported.

The league released the figures Saturday, hours before the annual moratorium starts and teams can begin negotiating with free agents like Durant.
