Steve Kerr: Kevin Durant Taking Less Money Reminiscent Of Tim Duncan

Jul 11, 2017 12:53 PM

Kevin Durant's decision to take less money on his contract this season reminded Steve Kerr of Tim Duncan, who was his teammate for several seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.

Durant's decision to take less money allowed the Golden State Warriors to more easily re-sign Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston while also signing Nick Young.

"I knew he was going to give up enough money to allow us to keep Andre and Shaun," said Kerr. "I didn’t know he was going to go beyond that. A remarkable gesture. I told him it reminded me a little bit of Tim Duncan and his time with the Spurs. He made max money and then at key times in his career he took a little less so they could add a player here and there. The way the league works, the way the CBA works, it really kind of is up to the star player at key times to take a little haircut here and there. Whether that’s fair or not, I don’t know. But I do know that Tim knew it was dramatically helping his own career and KD understands the same thing. In the end, he’s going to make a fortune in his career. Already has and he hopefully is going to win more titles and that’s what he cares about."
