Kevin Durant to Re-Sign With Warriors After Declining Player Option

We as a nation desperately need anything but Thunder Warriors in playoffs

Heck, he took a $1.5 million pay cut from the season before, which is something you don't see too often from a star player in his prime.

We also go over Quinn Cook talking about his new two-year deal after bouncing back and forth between the National Basketball Association and G-League.

The discounted deal permitted the defending champion Warriors to re-sign swingman Andre Iguodala and backup guard Shaun Livingston. Durant now is playing under the team-friendly two-year, $51 million contract he signed last offseason but he'll reportedly decline the 2018-19 player option his deal contains and pursue an agreement that better reflects his status as one of the sport's premier players.

"Financially, obviously, what I wanted to do past year, it made sense", Durant told the Athletic in March.

"I'm sure here soon I'll want to sign a long-term deal just to feel stable".

Junior hockey team bus crash in Canada leaves 15 dead, 14 injured
What's unfolding in Humboldt, Sask., is a national tragedy. "These are young boys, some of them still in high school". Canadian public broadcaster CBC spoke to the sister of coach Darcy Haugan, who said he was killed in the collision.

Kevin Durant knew for a fact he wouldn't be making max contract money when signing on with Golden State back in 2016, as there was no possible way under the current salary cap rules that the Warriors would be able to resign both Steph Curry and Durant to max deals while also having Klay Thompson and Draymond Green on the roster and trying to build a semi-decent championship bench.

The nine-time All-Star finished this season with an average of 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists. 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.

The University of Texas product has meshed well with Stephen Curry, and in the coming years the duo figures to help Golden State maintain its place on the short list of National Basketball Association title contenders. His annual pay would be $35.3 million, $38.2 million, $41 million and $43.8 million.

Alternatively, the 2014 MVP could pen a three-year deal which allows him to opt out after the second season.
