On Monday, Warriors GM Bob Myers said he's willing to give Durant "whatever he wants" in upcoming contract re-negotiations, with Durant expected to opt out of his current deal and become a free agent.
"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Myers told the Associated Press.
A year ago, when Green wore a "quickie" shirt at the parade, in reference to Quicken Loans Arena and the Warriors' five-game victory over the Cavs in the 2017 NBA Finals, James responded on Instagram with another meme - "that's what she said".
"We'll get that done pretty quick, I don't think it'll be much to it", Kerr said. He doesn't plan to leave the team-he just wants to restructure his deal and make his money.
"All I want to do in my life, while I'm healthy, is to work on my game and enjoy the game and not worry about nothing else". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.
"Our goal - to be honest - is to keep the whole thing together", Myers said. Behind Durant and Curry, the Warriors took a 21-point lead into the fourth quarter, and the Cavaliers waved the white towel with just more than four minutes left, taking James out of what might have been his final contest with Cleveland. With the two-time defending champs slated to return their entire core (potentially minus reserves David West, Nick Young, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw), KD is the only major piece of the puzzle that isn't locked in. Andre's injury really hurt us before that and helped Houston get back in the series.
- Highest priority on the summer checklist: Kevin Durant's contract.
"My responsibility is to whatever team I play for".
But signing older guys - whether that be ones who were on the team this past year or a new batch of ring chasers - is still something the Warriors need to do this offseason. If you have to have the best ISO player on Earth, then you've got to live with some ISO's when maybe you don't want them.
