Two-time champion Kevin Durant to make brief visit to Manila

  • Golden State Warriors Draymond Green and Kevin Durant talk during the third quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Sunday

Just when you thought we could close the chapter on Kevin Durant's social media dust-ups, another one enters the fray and could possibly trigger a new source of viral skirmishes for the Golden State Warriors star forward.

Durant, Paul and George all knew what they were going to do even before the NBA's moratorium - and the start of free agency - officially kicked in at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Sunday.

Steve Kerr, who led Golden State to two straight National Basketball Association titles, has agreed to a deal with the National Basketball Association club which will make him one of the highest paid coaches, ESPN reported on Friday night. Larry Brown Sports reports that the 1+1 structure of the contract will give the Warriors some savings for the following season. Kevin Durant, look what he did for us past year.

The 29-year-old Durant could sign for as many as four years and about $160 million. He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. It might make him more money if he signs a long-term deal next summer instead, but could he have ulterior motives besides money? George told a party in Oklahoma City that he's staying with the Thunder, after agreeing to terms on what is a $137 million, four-year deal that comes with an option for the final season. Durant has averaged at least 25 points for the past 10 seasons.




The results these past 4 years really speak for themselves, and it's going to be interesting to learn just how long and lucrative of a commitment the franchise makes to him.

His words added to a growing murmur around the league that Durant might be able to be convinced to leave the Warriors treble-championship winning set up next summer - and Lowe claimed the Knicks are preparing for that eventuality.

Durant's return to the Warriors coincides with Paul George's recent announcement of resigning with OKC while at a party at Russell Westbrooks' home. Rich Kleiman, Durant's business manager, sounded unequivocal when he reiterated Durant's free agency plans after the Finals. With the Lakers victorious, it pretty much cemented the team's route to their second straight title. While he missed 14 games due to injury, Durant had another Hall-of-Fame-caliber season in 2017-18, averaging 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.8 blocks while shooting 41.9 percent from three, the second-best mark of his career.
