Kevin Durant will not re-sign with Warriors until late July

If Durant were to sign a five-year max contract, his first year salary of approximately US$35 million (AU$46 million) would force the Warriors to renounce several players to clear cap room. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Andre Iguodala could all be on the market this summer. Sources said Tuesday that Durant formally notified Golden State of that decision this week. Durant was even named the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. As early as now, there are organizations and individuals trying to tear the group apart. But he is going to wait until the team completes most of its offseason business before re-signing. However, if the two sides can't reach an agreement, the Warriors can't use that money to allocate it to an outside player of his stature. George reportedly called one-half of the Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson, and asked him about playing together for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Stein's mid-week report also indicates that Durant "won't formally come to terms on his new deal until later in the month".

Trump also pulled the USA out of the Paris Climate Accord, notably saying that he was elected "to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris ".

It is uncertain at this point if the Warriors can maintain the unit that helped them win two titles in the last three seasons. The Timberwolves recently acquired All-Star wingman Jimmy Butler to jump-start their acceleration, and if they're able to procure Iguodala, head coach Tom Thibodeau would have a roster equipped for a deep playoff run. These players want nothing more than championship rings, and they are already in the right place.
