Golden State Warriors Win Kevin Durant Sweepstakes
After a number of days of rumors and a few incorrect reports, NBA superstar free agent Kevin Durant announced that he would be signing with the Golden State Warriors on July 4, 2016. Durant is expected to sign a two-year, $54.3 million contract, according to ESPN. Via a post on The Players’ Tribune, the superstar small forward put it this way:
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player—as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
