Kevin Durant re-signed with the Golden State Warriors on a two-year, $61.5 million max contract, with the second year of the deal being a player-option.
Called a one-plus-one deal, Durant says his new contract leaves his financial and team options open.
“I just want to take it a day at a time, and I don’t want to look at my future now,” Durant told Yahoo Sports. “The [one-plus-one] was the perfect thing for me to do, to keep things open for me — financially and what I want to do. It’s just one of those things.”
Durant will make $30 million next year and $31.5 million for the option year in 2019 if he picks it up. If he doesn’t pick it up, Durant will become an unrestricted free agent.
Since joining the Warriors in 2016, Durant has won two championships and two Finals MVP’s. The nine-time All-Star is averaging 25.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists while shooting 52.5 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from three in 130 games with Golden State.
