Kevin Durant is reportedly planning to turn down his player option with the Golden State Warriors for the 2017-2018 season and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but he will still sign and stay on with the team with whom he won his first-ever National Basketball Association championship.

Welp, the Warriors just won the NBA Finals and are looking to repeat, but they have an important offseason to navigate before they can focus on their next title quest.

ESPN reported Durant "will turn down a player-option salary of approximately $28 million to momentarily hit free agency with the intentions of taking less than the max he's eligible for as a 10-year veteran".

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. With a core that includes Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, it's hard to see anyone dethroning Golden State in the immediate future.

All signs, according to sources, point to Durant signing another one-plus-one pact, which carries a player-option at the end.

In addition to Iguodala, the Warriors are trying to retain free agents Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia and other bench players. It's the nature of the business when the salary cap is escalating each season and stars know they can make more by signing short term deals one step at a time.

Believe it or not, Iggy has a market value of $20 million per year.

The 6-11 forward has said on multiple occasions that he intends to stay with the Warriors for many years, and he has put roots down in the Bay Area both personally and professionally.

So looking at the big picture, Durant's decision to waive off the extra $4 million he is entitled to will lead to paybacks of hundreds of millions in the years ahead plus the opportunity of taking home multiple National Basketball Association rings.
