Warriors’ GM Bob Myers will give Kevin Durant new deal he wants

Myles Garrett

With Durant due to hit free agency after next season, the Warriors have already begun working to ensure that they can keep him around, and general manager Bob Myers seems to have a strategy for keeping negotiations simple, telling reporters on Monday that he's prepared to give Durant "whatever he wants".

"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Meyers said, via USA Today. "I got a chance to tell him congratulations on everything and he said 'Hey listen, if there's any chance you want to change your mind and play another year, you can always come here.' But it's all tongue in cheek man". "We had a good feeling", he said. So, he's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. Even with him, though, Golden State needed a Game 7 comeback just to defeat the Houston Rockets on the road and reach the Finals this year, but the beat-down of Cleveland seemed to reinforce the notion for some that the National Basketball Association has lost its competitive balance. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here. "He's earned that to lay out the terms". If you have to have the best ISO player on Earth, then you've got to live with some ISO's when maybe you don't want them.

Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'
Trump says it "didn't look friendly" but it was "very friendly". "I think it's a very fair question", Trump said. Prior to Trump's departure for Singapore, global leaders met in Quebec over the weekend for the G7 conference.

While Durant has run with the likes of two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the very team that beat him in the 2016 Western Conference Finals, James spent the last two months of the regular season and much of the postseason building chemistry with new teammates. Well, going out and signing Kevin Durant that summer and winning back-to-back titles after that did an excellent job of backing up that claim. "I know I don't", Durant told ESPN. "I didn't think it was anything unusual given the state of our team, what we've been through and the length of this journey". Nothing to me was that, like, shocking but yeah we went through some stuff. "For sure this was the toughest of the four (years)". "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years. I know they're going to view it as a flawless career no matter what".

"You never really get exactly what you want", Myers said. "It's pretty incredible to be a part of the group and the organization".
