DeAndre Jordan (player option): He'll be 30 years old next season, but was still one of the league's dominant rebounders last season, averaging more than 15 per game.
-Guard Will Barton is reportedly expected to re-sign with the Nuggets on a four-year contract reportedly worth more than $50 million and containing a player option in the fourth year.
Durant was due to become a free agent at 12:01 a.m. ET on Sunday, as he declined a $26.2 million player option.
Also part of that series were Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, James Harden and Derrick Rose, among others. Doing so will cost Durant almost $6 million for the 2018-19 season after already leaving money on the table in his contract with the Warriors from last summer. What Myers likely hoped that would mean was Durant signing a max contract and staying with the Warriors long-term.
While Durant has always been one of the best players in the National Basketball Association, he's continued that dominance since coming over to Golden State from the Oklahoma City Thunder. He wants to compete for a title, which would make signing with the Warriors a very good decision.
At the same time, regardless of if Melo stays or goes, the Thunder are going to be paying through the ears to effectively keep together a team that was beaten by the Utah Jazz in six games in the first round of last year's playoffs.
"I don't have any desire to go anywhere else, and I'm not gonna play that card and play it out as a free agent and do all that stuff". A person familiar with the terms says Gay has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal to be back in silver and black next season. He did see a dip in rebounds per game though, following a career-high his first year with the team. Instead, he will make $10 million next season on a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.
