The Golden State Warriors are realistic Kevin Durant could leave the franchise in 2019, but they remain confident he'll stay.

The Warriors will open their new arena in 2019 and would likely remain title favorites for the next few seasons if Durant re-signs.

The general feeling among Durant’s current teammates, coaches and front office staff is “he’s as happy as I’ve ever seen him” and “he’s in a great situation. He knows that.”

Durant is expected to also consider the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.
