NBA Rumors: Warriors to Give KD Any Contract He Wants With LeBron Planning to Recruit Him to Lakers


Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers is no dummy, and with reports that LeBron James is set to recruit Kevin Durant, he’s already set the stage for a huge bidding war.

Myers told reporters that money won’t be an issue from the team’s standpoint when it comes to anticipated contract talks this summer with the back-to-back reigning NBA Finals MVP.
“Whatever he wants, Meyers said. “Sometimes you don’t negotiate. I’d love to have him for 10 years. Kevin Durant, look what he did for us last year. He did us a great service. He’s earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. I just want him to sign a deal.

“But I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. He’s earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.”
Durant, who won’t be taking any discounts this go-round, is expected to opt out of his current deal with the Warriors and is eligible to sign for up to four years and $160 million.

KD previously signed a “one-plus-one” deal last summer, which provided an option on the upcoming season and paid him $25 million last season. It's expected that LeBron James will attempt to convince Durant to join in him in Los Angeles, creating their own superteam.
