"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

Durant, who turns 30 on September 29, is expected to opt out of his current deal with the Warriors and could sign a five-year deal to stay in Oakland, something that would line up with his internal career timeline.

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

The Golden State Warriors are the National Basketball Association champions, and as much as they'd like the keep the gang together their roster will likely see some influx this summer. Durant has been suggested by some as the player most likely to inherit James' mantle as best in the game, yet he hasn't been mentioned yet in any Greatest of All Time (GOAT) discussion. They've earned the right to do whatever they want; maybe they want to wait until free agency. But want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.

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.

Warriors GM says Durant can have whatever deal he wants

Key reserve David West is contemplating retirement, telling Kerr and Myers during exit interviews he will take some time to decide. "I think it's good that we're going to be relying on a lot of young guys". "I don't know, I'll stay on my side". Nothing to me was that, like, shocking but yeah we went through some stuff.

Myers also downplayed any tension or turmoil that took place privately.

It's still sinking in for Kerr just how much success the Warriors have had during this four-year stretch since he became coach ahead of the 2014-15 season.

And while the Warriors will always think big, the truth is that if Golden State wants to go for a third-straight title next year, they'll have to make some changes to this roster - specifically to the bench.

Yes, it's been reported - and aggregated - that the Warriors are interested in acquiring Anthony Davis, but that's in the same way that I'm interested in acquiring a Mercedes AMG S-63 - I'd certainly like to have it, but I'm neither capable or willing to pay what it costs.
