Durant, Warriors agree to short-term deal

Durant, Warriors agree to short-term deal

From a legacy standpoint, one of the best ways to distract from the stink of leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to form an unfair super-team is to bury it under an avalanche of Larry O'Brien trophies and Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP awards.

Durant has made a decision to sign a two-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the deal can not become official until the league's offseason moratorium ends on Friday.

The Warriors could offer Crawford either all or part of their taxpayer mid-level exception worth $5.3 million next year, or the veteran minimum, worth about $2.4 million. Marc Stein of The New York Times said that Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season.

He averaged 10.3 points in 20.7 minutes for Minnesota last season. He's led the Warriors to The Finals every season during his tenure, delivering three out of four championships. Paul missed the last two games of that series with an injury, and the Rockets wasted big leads in both of those games - then had to watch the Warriors sweep the Cavaliers for the National Basketball Association title. With most teams struggling to find cap room, the market could get really interesting this summer.

Draymond Green and Kevin Durant have already begun recruiting a certain free agent, too. The Houston native has agreed to a one-year deal at the $2.4 million minimum, a person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press.

According to multiple reports, the deal includes a player option for after next season.
