Kevin Durant Essentially Confirms This LeBron James Scenario Won’t Happen

Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers revealed quite a lot about the NBA's salary structure after quickly assuring reporters that Kevin Durant can get "whatever he wants" with his next contract.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Myers told the Associated Press.

Durant is most likely to sign a one-plus-one contract again this offseason and then sign a five-year contract in 2019 at 35 percent of the max. "You guys asked me this previous year", said James, whose averages of 34.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.0 assists went for naught over the four-game defeat.

"Whatever he wants. There's no negotiation", said Myers. So, he's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. But I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. "He's earned that to lay out the terms".

The defense bill will be open for amendments, McConnell said, and "we'll see what happens as it moves across the floor". A few hours later, Corker went ahead and filed the bill, along with seven other Republican senators and four Democrats.

Therefore, the only question becomes how much money he will end up making. Past year he wore a T-shirt with the word "Quickie" on it, rendered in the style of the logo for Quicken Loans, the title sponsor of the Cavs' home arena. "Our goal, to be honest, is to try to keep the whole thing together, so that's the pieces of the puzzle we've got to try to figure out". But, Durant told ESPN during the NBA Finals he plans to re-sign with the Warriors.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it".

Myers also downplayed any tension or turmoil that took place privately.

"I feel like it's easy to be the best player when you don't have good players around you". As it turns out, when Smith's decision to run out the clock rather than look for a potential game-winning shot contributed to a Game 1 loss, the Warriors had a "good feeling" the series was over. "I would say there is stylistic tension - but not personal tension", Kerr said.
