Kevin Durant Will Reportedly Restructure Contract With Warriors

Kevin Durant Will Reportedly Restructure Contract With Warriors

Last offseason, Durant took nearly $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary which allowed Golden State to resign role players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

No matter what happens during the Warriors quest for a fourth-consecutive trip to the NBA Finals, Kevin Durant will opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, according to ESPN.

The All-Star has made a decision to opt-out of his current contract of $26 million to restructure a new deal with the Warriors, league sources told ESPN.

However, as reported by ESPN, the decision to become an unrestricted free agent does not mean Durant will leave Golden State, as the 29-year-old will instead restructure his deal with the reigning National Basketball Association champions. He went on to help the Warriors win the 2017 National Basketball Association title, and he was named Finals MVP.

By making less money than a player of his level, Durant enabled the Warriors to keep players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston on their roster. That said, Durant has no intentions of leaving the Bay Area.

Durant plans to give up a guaranteed $26.2 million for next season, but that figure remains modest for an National Basketball Association superstar.

Facebook scandal reveals startling power of social media
The following day, Zuckerberg is set to be grilled by members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee at 10 a.m. Dianne Feinstein after meeting with Feinstein on Capitol Hill on April 9, 2018 in Washington , DC.

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.

A two-year deal with a $30-million salary for 2018-19 and a player option worth $31.5 million for 2019-20.

Durant is earning much less than what a player of his caliber should be getting.

If Durant wants a long-term deal, he could look at a four-year, $158 million contract, speculates NBC's ProBasketballTalk.

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