Kevin Durant agree to take $9M less than max contract

Golden State Warriors All-Star forward Kevin Durant will agree to a two-year, approximately $53 million deal, according to league sources.

Durant will possess a player option on the second year and would likely opt out again in the summer of 2018.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP will be taking somewhere in the vicinity of a $9 million pay cut, given that he could have secured a max of $34 million per year. He will make $25.9 million this season, less than he made in 2016-17.
