Kevin Durant, NBA Finals MVP, Takes Huge Pay Cut To Re-sign With The Warriors

| July 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

Only a week after the Golden State Warriors signed Stephen Curry to a monster $40 million a season deal, the Warriors sign NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant to keep their championship team intact.

However unlike Curry, Durant will lose millions. According to usatoday “Durant was eligible for a maximum salary deal that would have started at $34.5 million this summer, but it would have required the reigning NBA champions to renounce the rights to Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston (who have both agreed to re-sign). Even with those moves, he was still eligible for a deal that could have started at $31.5 million but is expected to take a starting annual salary between $25-26 million as a way of lessening the luxury tax blow for owner Joe Lacob and his group.”

The team also plan to sign Iggy Azalea ex-fiance Swaggy P, who was let go by the Lakers.

Durant multi NBA scoring champion averaged 35 points per game in the finals and was unstoppable.

Last week Draymond Green took home the best defensive player for 2016=2017.
