Bob Myers on structuring Kevin Durant's new contract: 'Whatever he wants'

news: Kevin Love admits pondering about 'what ifs' and Kyrie Irving Congrats to the Golden State Warriors! Back to Back Wins!

It seems as though - unless the unlikely occurs and Durant returns to pair up with Westbrook again later on down the road - Russ will be considering KD a bozo for the foreseeable future, especially if he re-ups and stays the course with the Warriors after he hits free agency this offseason.

Monday, Warriors general manager Bob Myers-the man who assembled this absurd roster-said the team will do whatever it takes to bring back K.D. He said the back-to-back Finals MVP could have "whatever he wants".

"I'd love to have him for 10 years", Myers said (via The Athletic).

The Golden State Warriors All-Star, who has scored 20,913 career points, is viewed as one of two prime candidates - along with Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James (31,038) - who could overthrow Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) as the league's all-time regular-season scoring leader.

Since Durant signed a one-plus-one deal last summer, he will decline his second-year option and therefore become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Among those doubting James will join the Warriors: Golden State star forward Kevin Durant.


"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it", Durant said. But I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here.

"I feel like it's easy to be the best player when you don't have good players around you".

Many, however, remain skeptical of such signing taking place.

Durant scored a career playoff-high 43 points in Game 3, highlighted by a crucial 3-pointer in the final minute. "I would say there is stylistic tension - but not personal tension", Kerr said.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant talks with NBA TV about his team's run to the title. Andre's injury really hurt us before that and helped Houston get back in the series.
