Kevin Durant to sign 1+1 deal with Warriors

Kevin Durant Warriors

Kevin Durant will return to the Golden State Warriors next season.

Durant will sign a two-year deal with the Warriors that includes a player option for after next season, according to multiple reports. As the New York Times’ Marc Stein says, Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season. He will have the chance to become a free agent after the year.

The 1+1 structure of the contract gives the Warriors savings for the upcoming season.

Although we knew Durant was going to opt out of his deal and become a free agent, all indications were that he would return to the Warriors for a third straight season, which he will be doing.

So far, he’s 2-for-2 on winning NBA championships and NBA Finals MVP awards. He’s looking to make it 3-for-3.

Though Golden State has had a great run, Warriors fans probably are not looking forward to the summer of 2019, when both Durant and Klay Thompson could become free agents.
