Warriors’ GM Bob Myers will give Kevin Durant new deal he wants

Warriors’ GM Bob Myers will give Kevin Durant new deal he wants

But, he confirmed he will remain in Golden State at multiple points during the regular-season and most recently a couple days ago.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Meyers said, via USA Today.

Back-to-back National Basketball Association champion Kevin Durant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was asked if he'd be excited if LeBron James could somehow join him on the Golden State Warriors to turn a superteam into, as Kimmel said, "the Harlem Globetrotters". "I got a chance to tell him congratulations on everything and he said 'Hey listen, if there's any chance you want to change your mind and play another year, you can always come here.' But it's all tongue in cheek man".

OAKLAND, Calif. - Kevin Durant, the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP, told ESPN on Friday that he could see himself walking away from the game at 35 years of age, five seasons from now. So, he's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. "Want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here".

"The last two games Houston had leads in both games, they played really well but I thought they wore down and I thought our talent just took over".

On the way to his second straight NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award, Durant averaged 28.75 points, 10.25 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.0 blocked shots over 41.0 minutes of action in the four-game sweep of the Cavaliers. "He's earned that to lay out the terms".

"Our goal - to be honest - is to keep the whole thing together", Myers said.

But signing older guys - whether that be ones who were on the team this past year or a new batch of ring chasers - is still something the Warriors need to do this offseason. With the two-time defending champs slated to return their entire core (potentially minus reserves David West, Nick Young, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw), KD is the only major piece of the puzzle that isn't locked in. Nothing to me was that shocking, but we went through some stuff. Klay's got another year.

Look at how overmatched the Cavaliers looked against the Warriors the last two years, or how the possible dynasty in Miami died on the vine in 2014 because of a lack of solid role players to surround LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade. But Kevin Durant prefers his sweatpants over suits, he revealed in Lee Jenkins' profile for Sports Illustrated.
