Warriors to Pay Kevin Durant 'Whatever He Wants'

"Whatever he wants", Myers said, laughing.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

The problem is that the Warriors won't have much collateral through which to make those changes - there's no massive jump in the salary cap (which allowed the Warriors to sign Durant in 2016) looming this summer.

"I wouldn't say we have figured it out".

With every successful season Durant has as a member of the Golden State Warriors, it must hurt Westbrook more and more as he realizes he's stuck on a roster in OKC with an overpaid Carmelo Anthony, a Paul George that's about to dip, and nearly no chance of winning a championship as long as the Warriors are around. "We had a good feeling", he said. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants".

"The last two games Houston had leads in both games, they played really well but I thought they wore down and I thought our talent just took over. Want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here". "He's earned that to lay out the terms". "I pride myself on working hard wherever I go, and I feel like these guys embraced me and I feel like I'm a Warrior".

However, Lacob's recent statements showed that the Warriors are not interested in breaking their core even if it means adding the best player on the planet to their team.

Slate's Craig Fehrman put it simply: "The NBA has been bad for two years, and it's Kevin Durant's fault". Durant's free-agent decision isn't shrouded in mystery.

The comments were a surprise to many, including those who cover the team closely, who seemed to have very little idea what West could be referring to.

"So I don't think that's going to define me as a player".

"I don't know if anything would really blow your mind but it was a hard season and there were lots of moments where it became more hard", Kerr said. "So I'm not trying to go out there and force anything".

It's still sinking in for Kerr just how much success the Warriors have had during this four-year stretch since he became coach ahead of the 2014-15 season. "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years. It's pretty incredible to be a part of the group and the organization".
