After rumors floated that he was 90% going to stay in Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant stuns the sports world and signed a 2-year deal with the Golden Sate Warriors. Durant announced his decision on The Player’s Tribune:
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
It has been reported that Durant signed a 2-year contract for $54 million with a player second year option.
