Kevin Durant Casually Roasted by Warriors GM at Championship Parade

Bob Myers confirmed that the Golden State Warriors will work with Kevin Durant on any type of contract he seeks in free agency. "No matter how many points I score, no matter how many people I pass up, no matter how many points I leave on the table, my legacy, as we always like to talk about, I can go up and ask any person who has ever seen me play and they'll have a different way of viewing my game".

Over two seasons with Golden State, Durant has averaged 25.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists.

Since he famously took roughly $10 million less than he could have in order to keep the team's core in tact last summer, he might want to capitalize by signing the four-year deal with approximately $160 million that the Warriors can offer him. Kevin Durant, look what he did for us past year.

When the report of Myers offering Durant "whatever deal he wants" came up in the parade interview, Myers found the flawless opportunity to make fun of the two-time Finals MVP.

"I'm so happy for you". The Warriors won titles in 2015, 2017 and 2018 - with each year being noted on the rings on Green's shirt - while the Cavaliers famously came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the title in 2016. "I'm so excited to coach you again next year".

"We just don't have a lot of vehicles to add players, as far as financial or cap space or even the non-taxpayer mid-level [exception] - things that you'd normally have, we don't have", Myers said.

Durant, who turns 30 in September, could ink a five-year deal in July. Regardless of what team James ends up playing for next year and the collective talent they possess, he's still likely to be considered the best player in the game.

Yes, that No. 28 pick is going to prove disproportionately important for Golden State because not only are the Warriors fighting the rest of the league - they're also fighting malaise. Andre's injury really hurt us before that and helped Houston get back in the series.
