NBA: OKC forward will get 2-year, $54.3 million deal from Warriors


07-05-2016 11:02 BJT

Free agent Kevin Durant has decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder. The former MVP's contract had run out and he was free to sign with any team. Many believed he would re-sign with OKC, but he was courted by several teams, and one of them was able to woo him away from the only franchise he has ever played for -- as the four-time scoring champ has decided to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

Durant announced the decision in a post on the Player's Tribune website. The deal is reportedly for two years, and 54-million dollars. The second year is for a player option. Durant cannot officially sign until July 7th, so a couple days from now. His signing affects two teams, first Golden State which acquired him, as they will once again be favourites to win the NBA title. And his old team Oklahoma City, which loses one of its two All-Stars, and now becomes Russell Westbrook's team.

The 2014 MVP and four-time scoring champion led the Oklahoma City Thunder to the NBA Finals in 2012, and to the Western Conference finals in four of the past six years - and he's only 27 in the prime of his career and will be playing with the current league MVP -- Steph Curry.
