Durant to sign two-year max deal with Warriors

Kevin Durant could wind up playing at Madison Square Garden on a full-time basis, according to some NBA insiders.

While most of the NBA is focused on movement by players from one team to another (hello, LeBron James), the two-time defending champions have their sights set on continuing to do what they do.

Chris Haynes of ESPN reports the Golden State Warriors and two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant are closing in on a contract extension.

Durant, 29, a nine-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season for the Warriors.

Marc Stein of The New York Times had some details on Durant’s pending deal.

Bobby Marks of ESPN weighed in with even more information.
