Kevin Durant Rumors: Opting In With Warriors Is "Last Resort"
 

 
"I think opting in is the last resort."

Golden State Warriors All Star Kevin Durant is still expected to receive max contract offers from multiple teams this summer, despite the achilles injury he suffered during Game 5 of the NBA Finals earlier this week.

Immediately following the injury, some suggested Durant would decide to opt into his $31.5M player option with the Warriors for next season, and test free agency the following summer. However, it appears as though Durant will be moving forward as planned.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, picking up the player option is viewed as a "last resort" for KD.

Durant, who will turn 31 in September, will likely miss all of next season, but several analysts maintain teams around the league won't be deterred when pursuing him this summer.

ESPN's Bobby Marks says teams are still prepared to offer KD a four-year max contract, a*suming he does turn down the player option with Golden State, as has been reported.

“I said ... If you had cap space, would you go out and sign Kevin Durant knowing that he will likely be out maybe the whole year? And the resounding answer was 'yes.' Each of the teams also said that they wouldn't even put any injury language in there for maybe years three and four to protect. So, yes, there will be a marketplace for Kevin Durant this summer, either with a team for four years, $141 million dollars or even back in Golden State here."

Of course opting into $31M is the last resort, when he can lock in $150M before he has to prove anything.

If he opts in, he hits free agency after a year, when teams will be more able to see what post-achilles KD looks like to some extent. Locking in now means he gets to cash in fully on the combination of mystery and past success.

at the end of the day, this is kd's best move.

take the option for a quick cash grab, spend that time rehabbing all year. thank GSW for the check, and move on to unrestricted free agency.

i can easily a*sure you that while certain teams will try to use the injury as leverage, there will be plenty suitors willing to take the risk on a superstar of KD's caliber and pay him the max regardless.

this injury will not hurt kd's $$$ value long-term

Take the supermax from Warriors sit out 2020 season to rehab. 5 yr deal but only play 4 seasons


Come back stronger 2020/2021 with finals appearance and win it all.

If he already wanted out of GS that would explain why opting in would be a last resort

I think he wants to go somewhere and be unquestionably the guy again which he will never be in GS

I agree that was the narrative before getting injury.

The injury has proven three things.

1. They cant win a title without him. He makes them real vulnerable next season if hes gone or sits out whole season. Cousins cant fill his void.

2, Raptors will end this in game 6 in a blow out as well. This will prove to his ego yall need me and ain't sh*t without me.

3. They messed up with his injury so he now sees how dirty the whole organization was.

The smart move would be opting in and then signing one (most likely) last big money contract next year, so he could maximize his earnings. I can't envision him getting 30 million per when he's 35 (he'll be 31 when the season begins again), if he were to sign a 4 year contract right now.
