Questions That Already Got Answered in 2018 NBA Free Agency

Five free-agency questions for the Warriors Kevin Durant’s contract length veteran minimum options and more

LeBron took a discount when he went to Miami - sure enough, he won his first two titles and claimed two NBA Finals MVP awards for his trouble.

While the Warriors probably just want their NBA-dominating core locked in for as long as possible, Durant's move will at least give them a significant amount of luxury tax bills this offseason.

Durant wanted to maximize his monetary value after his pay cut past year helped the Warriors re-sign veterans Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, while also adding Nick Young at the mid-level exception ($5.2 million).

The Golden State Warriors and forward Kevin Durant have agreed to a two-year, $61.5M deal, per Shams Charania of Yahoo!

The Golden State Warriors are finalizing an extension to make Steve Kerr one of the NBA's highest paid coaches, according to an ESPN report.

Chris Paul was also a free agent, but will stay in Houston.

Durant averaged 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 68 regular-season games in 2017/18, missing time due to a rib cartilage fracture.




Meanwhile, James created a frenzy on Saturday without saying a word.

Day 1 of National Basketball Association free agency was not lacking for fireworks or firepower, led by James' decision to leave Cleveland for a second time and join the Los Angeles Lakers.

The New York Times says DeAndre Jordan, who was linked with the Warriors, will sign a one-year, $24m deal with the Dallas Mavericks after opting out of his contract with the LA Clippers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, on the other hand, were the top seed in the East and hailed by many as a shoo-in for the NBA Finals in a dream match against the Lakers. But going to L.A. on Saturday doesn't necessarily provide any hint about his team for next season, since James has homes in Southern California. He's the next superstar to follow in the legacy that Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson built for the Lakers. "Process that", Philadelphia star Joel Embiid wrote on Twitter.

Kerr, 52, is coming off a five-year, $25 million pact with the reigning champions.

Riding this train of thought into fantasy land, if Kevin Durant were to shock the world and consider other teams in free agency to make the Warriors mortal again, which spots would be the best free agency destinations for him?
