Durant to re-sign with Warriors on 2-year deal

Warriors star Kevin Durant is coming off his first championship.

Kevin Durant will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors on a two-year, $53 million deal, according to a report by ESPN.

The second year of Durant’s contract will be a player option, per ESPN.

Durant is taking less than the max because he wanted the Warriors to have enough money to keep their core together.

By doing so, Golden State was able to re-sign Andre Iguodala and give Stephen Curry his supermax extension.

Durant will make roughly around $26.5 million next season.
