Kevin Durant announced Monday in a post on the players tribune that he will be leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors. He went on to write

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant wrote. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.

“With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”

Durant is expected to sign a 2 year deal worth $54 million dollars. The second year is a player option and he can choose to be a free agent again next summer.

Draymond Green told Marc J. Spears from the show “The Undefeated” that he is excited about playing with one of the best players in the world.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to add one of the best players in the world to our team and welcome him to our brotherhood! This will be some of the best times of our life and I’m looking forward to it,” he wrote.

The Warriors plan next to trade Andrew Bogut and allow Harrison Barnes to become an unrestricted free agent.

Kevin Durant then went on to thank the community of Oklahoma and the organization for the 9 years he spent with team.

“I’m from Washington, D.C. originally, but Oklahoma City truly raised me,” Durant wrote. “It taught me so much about family as well as what it means to be a man. There are no words to express what the organization and the community mean to me, and what they will represent in my life and in my heart forever. The memories and friendships are something that go far beyond the game. Those invaluable relationships are what made this deliberation so challenging.” he went on to say, “It really pains me to know that I will disappoint so many people with this choice, but I believe I am doing what I feel is the right thing at this point in my life and my playing career.”
