There has been a seismic shift in the NBA landscape.
In a shocking move (well, sort of) Kevin Durant has agreed to join the Golden State Warriors. The star penned an article on the Player’s Tribune in which he revealed his intentions, an excerpt from which reads as the following:
The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.
Once it can become official on July Durant will ink a 2 year deal worth $54.3 million with a player option for the second year, which will allow him to capitalize when the salary cap increases again next year.
