Kevin Durant set to decline 2019 player option with the Warriors

Warriors to Play Spurs in First Round of 2018 NBA Playoffs        Series to Start this Weekend on Warriors Ground

Haynes reports that Durant's plan includes agreeing to a new, restructured deal with Golden State, although it is still up in the air whether Durant will take a short-term deal that gives him the flexibility to control his future or if he'll take a longer deal that keeps him with the Warriors. Meanwhile, Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green were all also felled by multi-game and/or multi-week ailments in March, while others like Patrick McCaw and Andre Iguodala have yet to play in April thanks to injuries of their own. Houston has won the conference title four times, last doing so in 1995.

"Financially, obviously, what I wanted to do previous year, it made sense", Durant told the Athletic in March. Last offseason, Durant took nearly $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary which allowed Golden State to resign role players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

There are several options for Durant and the Warriors, including another two-year deal or a four-year max contract valued at around $158 million. "That's a bridge too far for me, but anyway..." Durant could then opt out after the 2018-19 season and sign a five-year, $219 million contract.

Phil Mickelson hits driver off the deck to six feet, makes eagle
And not only does he attempt one of the toughest shots in golf, he executes it to perfection. Check out Mickelson's fantastic effort and his ensuing eagle putt, which he converted.

The Warriors have three All-Stars and a former NBA Finals MVP on their roster without Curry in the lineup - there's a ton of talent remaining - but Golden State's end-of-season struggles, highlighted by the team's embarrassing 119-79 loss to the Jazz in the regular-season finale, raises questions. But what is often missing in that conversation is that he has become the best player (not most valuable) on the team. It would be one thing if they just said that the Warriors were not the favorites without Curry, but to mention the Jazz and Thunder - two teams with no shot to win it all this year - does not happen without motives.

Durant plans to give up a guaranteed $26.2 million for next season, but that figure remains modest for an National Basketball Association superstar. "Well, the last two years, it made sense to do the one-year deal".
