Kevin Durant agrees to two-year deal with Warriors

Golden State also managed to re-sign Shaun Livingston and David West.

During the offseason, the Warriors, tasked with retaining players that helped win the championship this year, also must strengthen their bench.

'Gold Standard' chronicles the Warriors run to the 2017 NBA Championship. He is expected to decline the player option next year and sign for the maximum then. Young ranked in just the eighth percentile as a defender last year per Synergy Sports, allowing 1.037 points per possession.

Durant, who is an unrestricted free agent, will have a player option on the second year, according to the report. The 2017 NBA Finals MVP could keep Beasley's antics in check. "We are so happy for you!"

Golden State locked both players up for three more seasons, and it was Durant's gesture that helped the organization produce the finances necessary to get those deals done.

Jefferson, who had contemplated quitting, has one guaranteed season left on his contract worth $2.5 million.

This came as quite a surprise to the basketball world.

It would appear that Kevin Durant's favorite July pastime is shocking the country.

The Los Angeles Clippers traded Jamal Crawford to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-team deal involving the Denver Nuggets, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. They had been linked to Young and Jamal Crawford for a few days. The best he did was 0.8 steals a game back in 2011-2012 with the Washington Wizards.

The 28-year-old will lose in the region of $9million (£7m) over the course of his new two-year deal due to his sacrifice. His name has been tossed around the league, but the frontrunners appear to be Miami, New York, and the Lakers. The city of angels is no doubt tempting as the rising star Lonzo Ball will be there though the Lakers adding Paul George to their roster is unlikely to happen anytime soon. No, they are not, but as long as someone is willing to pay that salary, no matter what it takes to come up with the money, these players are not going to turn it down. With apologies to the endearingly streaky Ian Clark, none of Golden State's bench guards last year provided much by way of range, which occasionally led to some stagnant offensive stretches from the second unit.

In addition, forward Omri Casspi is joining the Warriors on a $2,106,470, one-year contract, a person with direct knowledge of the deal said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because it hadn't been announced. Remember this is the same team who signed Durant.
