Five free-agency questions for the Warriors Kevin Durant’s contract length veteran minimum options and more
LeBron James (player option): Still the free-agent grand prize at age 33, James has shown few signs of wear and tear despite 15 stellar seasons in the league.
The 52-year-old Kerr signed a contract in 2014 with the Warriors for five years.
It was rumored that James texted Kevin Durant about the possibility of teaming up in the future, which LBJ's camp vehemently denied.
So yes, Durant, took another pay cut - one worth $5.5 million.
He has dealt with health issues for the past three seasons, but both Warriors owner Joe Lacob and Kerr both indicated earlier this offseason that they expected to get a deal done soon.
For the second consecutive year, the Warriors will have locked up one of their star players with a max contract. He was eligible to make $35.7 million. Some of the assistant coaches want him, too. So did plenty of other players, and by the time the moratorium was 2 hours old, almost $700 million worth of deals had been agreed upon, based on figures confirmed to the AP by people involved in the various decisions. More big moves in the West are possible, especially with DeMarcus Cousins still available in free agency and a candidate to return to New Orleans.
Reacting to the news, which was first reported by New York Times' Marc Stein, NBA fans headed to Reddit to share their thoughts on what the deal might mean going forward.

If he opts out next summer, the Warriors will have KD's Bird rights, which greatly increases the size of the long-term contract he could sign. Now he's going to make an average of $40 million for what should be declining years.
Lowe says that Crawford may be looking for more than a minimum deal, but Golden State won't be the team that gives him more than the veteran minimum, which will be a decent number for the 18-year vet.
"Sometimes you don't negotiate".
But he agreed quickly this time to a one-year, $24.1 million deal and will finally be part of the Mavericks. But Ariza was a major, major reason the Rockets were able to push the Warriors as far as they did in the conference finals.
He's led the Warriors to The Finals every season during his tenure, delivering three out of four championships.
