  • Durant has agreed to re-sign to a two-year, $53 million contract with the Warriors, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports. Durant will make just $25 million during the the first year of the deal, which is significantly less than the max contract that he could have received. That should allow the Warriors to sign all of their key free agents, meaning nearly the entire rotation from the 2016-17 NBA Championship team will be back intact for their title defense. Durant also has a player option for the second year of the deal, so he'll potentially be able to re-up for more money next season. Durant should be a key component both offensively and defensively for the Warriors during the upcoming campaign, which should make him one of the top overall fantasy options.

  • Durant will decline his $27.7 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but is fully expected to re-sign with the Warriors, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports. Durant is planning to take a little less than a max deal in re-signing to the Warriors, with the hope that they'll be able to bring back some of their key role players elsewhere, which appears to include Andre Iguodala as the biggest priority. Already indicating that he wants to be with Golden State long term, Durant isn't in danger of heading elsewhere and should continue to be considered a key player in heading the Warriors championship defense during the upcoming campaign. The 2017 NBA Finals MVP averaged 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals, 1.6 blocks and 1.9 three-pointers across 33.4 minutes during his first season with the Warriors.

  • Durant provided 39 points (14-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal over 40 minutes during Monday's 129-120 win over the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Fittingly, Durant's efforts spearheaded the Warriors' series-clinching win, validating his momentous offseason signing in the most spectacular way possible. The All-Star forward drained buckets from wherever he pleased and put a bow on what was an outstanding series. Durant shot an impressive 55.6 percent over the five games, making 14 shots in both Game 1 and Game 5 while also notching 13 successful attempts in Game 2. He scored no less than 31 points in any game, and Monday's point total served as his postseason high. Durant wrapped up a remarkable first season in Golden State with averages of 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.1 steals across 33.4 minutes and will naturally be an intergral part of the team's defense of their championship next season.

  • Durant contributed 35 points (9-22 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 15-16 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 39 minutes in a 137-116 Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers. With his fourth straight 30-point game, Durant has helmed the multi-faceted Warriors attack all series, but with both Stephen Curry (14 points) and Klay Thompson (13 points) turning in subpar efforts and the Cavaliers drilling a FInals-record 24 three-pointers, it wasn't enough for Golden State to secure a series sweep. The Warriors should get better play from their supporting cast as the series heads back to Oakland for Game 5, and if Durant is able to maintain the level of play he's provided for the first four games, he'll have a great chance at securing his first NBA title and a likely FInals MVP award.

  • Durant scored 33 points (13-22 FT, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks and three steals across 41 minutes in Sunday's 132-113 win over the Cavaliers. Durant was outstanding in Game 1, but he took it to another level in this one, leading his team in points, rebounds, steals and blocks while finishing second in assists. He continues to get the job done on the offensive end, but his ability to dominate on defense as well is a new dimension to his game -- one that has made him the early front runner for NBA Finals MVP. Durant is averaging 35.5 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, 3.5 treys and 2.5 blocks per game in the series, with excellent shooting numbers to boot, and he will look to take his dominance on the road for Game 3.
