Kevin Durant has finally made his decision and he’ll be taking his talents to the Bay Area, joining Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
The decision was announced on The Player’s Tribune, a media platform used by athletes to tell their own stories.
“This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life,” Durant said of his decision. “I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
The terms of the contract appears to be two years at $54 million, with an option to leave after one season.
