Bob Myers confirmed that the Golden State Warriors will work with Kevin Durant on any type of contract he seeks in free agency.
"Sometimes you don't negotiate. I'd love to have him for 10 years. Kevin Durant, look what he did for us last year, he did us a great service," Myers said. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. I just want him to sign a deal. But want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. He can do whatever he wants. That shouldn't be a long negotiation. Our goal, to be honest, is to try to keep the whole thing together, so that's the pieces of the puzzle we've got to try to figure out."
Durant took a significant discount last offseason on a one-plus-one contract. Durant has a player option worth $26.25 million that he will almost surely decline.
Durant is most likely to sign a one-plus-one contract again this offseason and then sign a five-year contract in 2019 at 35 percent of the max.
