As expected, Golden State Warriors forward and two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant re-signed with the Bay Area team, inking a two-year, $61.5 million deal. He knows what he wants and he's very familiar with the Cavaliers after leading them to four straight NBA Finals since returning as a free agent in 2014 following four seasons in Miami.
The contract will be for $154 million over four years, the tweet said. Saying in text overlaying a photo from the Cavs' 2016 National Basketball Association title victory parade, "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons". Free agency officially begins at 12:01 EST on Sunday morning.
