Kevin Durant wants to stay with the Warriors

At the center of those talks is Kevin Durant, coming off his second consecutive NBA Finals MVP award.

Durant's new deal will likely leave them scrambling to fill some reserve holes with cheap veterans, and they could use savvy wing players with big game experience as they seek a fourth title in five years next season. Their ultimate goal was to get "clicking like Golden State" when it mattered most: the postseason. That's their job. They make too much money.

"In the entirety of last year's playoffs, Durant had 37 isolation possessions, via Synergy Sports", Moore wrote.

On Monday, Warriors general manager Bob Myers said he'd give Durant "whatever he wants" to re-sign with the team.

"I heard him say that, but I'll believe it when it happens", Kleiman said.

Kevin Durant has shown us numerous times over the years that he doesn't take criticism very well.

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants".

"All I want to do in my life, while I'm healthy, is to work on my game and enjoy the game and not worry about nothing else". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. He can do whatever he wants. That shouldn't be a long negotiation. "We want to do this thing again".

Myers also downplayed any tension or turmoil that took place privately. With the two-time defending champs slated to return their entire core (potentially minus reserves David West, Nick Young, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw), KD is the only major piece of the puzzle that isn't locked in.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it", said Durant.

"My responsibility is to whatever team I play for". Klay's got another year. As it turns out, when Smith's decision to run out the clock rather than look for a potential game-winning shot contributed to a Game 1 loss, the Warriors had a "good feeling" the series was over. "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on".
