Share

Durant will decline his $27.7 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but is fully expected to re-sign with the Warriors, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

The 28-year-old former Oklahoma City Thunder forward wants to win, repeatedly, in the Bay Area and it seems he is willing to delay a long-term deal in search of more championships.

On top of that, with what room in the salary cap are you going to sign Iguodala for $20 million a year?

Kevin Durant is set to make a new contract deal and stay with the Golden State Warriors, but the new National Basketball Association champions did lose a legendary player on Monday. He played a big role this season in leading Golden State to its second National Basketball Association championship in three years over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Andre Iguodala will hit the free-agent market on July 1, and according to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the 13-year National Basketball Association veteran is willing to speak with teams coming in with a big offer.

That will better enable the Warriors to keep together the championship roster that includes Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, Georgian center Zaza Pachulia and reserves. Over the course of the 2016-17 season, James averaged a notable 26.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 8.7 assists nearly notching a triple double. Curry made $12.1 million last season. "Unlike Iguodala, Livingston never signed a big money deal, due to the bad knee injury that derailed much of the early part of his career". Overall, he has been to the NBA Finals eight times over his career.

The only stipulation regarding this clause is that the player being re-signed must have played for the re-signing team for at least three consecutive seasons without being waived or changing teams via free agency.

Iguodala was once again a key contributor in the postseason, averaging 7.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists.
