Report- Kevin Durant to host prospective teams in L-A-_69994138-159532
On Monday, former Texas Longhorn Kevin Durant decided to take his talents to the West Coast and join forces with the Golden State Warriors.
The former NBA MVP had been courted by numerous NBA teams such as the Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers and the Miami Heat.
Durant is leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to align himself with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

The Warriors are coached by Steve Kerr who won five NBA championships as a player with the Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs. He also won the NBA championship as the coach of the Warriors in 2015.

Durant made the announcement via The Players Tribune. ESPN reports Durant signed a two-year deal with Golden State for $54.3 million with a player option for his second year.

The Thunder organization released the following statements following the news of Durant’s departure:

“Kevin’s contributions to our organization during his nine years were profound, on and off the court. He helped the Thunder grow and succeed in immeasurable ways and impacted the community just the same. We thank him for his leadership, his play, and how he represented Oklahoma City and the entire state of Oklahoma. Kevin made an indelible mark on the Thunder organization and the state of Oklahoma as a founding father of this franchise. We can’t adequately articulate what he meant to the foundation of this franchise and our success. While clearly disappointing that he has chosen to move on, the core values that he helped establish only lead to us thanking him for the many tangible and intangible ways that he helped our program.”
