The Golden State Warriors and injured star Kevin Durant have discussed the possibility of a sign-and-trade. This according to Brian Windhorst, who broke down how such a deal would be beneficial to both KD and the Warriors, on ESPN’s “Get Up.”
“One of the things that is being discussed right now is that the Golden State Warriors would offer Kevin Durant a five-year contract, $57 million extra than he could get signing elsewhere, let him rehab and then work with him to be traded. Potentially to New York, potentially to somewhere else. It would be their way to sort of take care of him monetarily, after what he just went through, and also protect the franchise and get some assets.”
It does make sense, especially for KD. That is if he can trust the Warriors enough to trade him to a team he wants to play for.
There’s never a dull moment in the NBA.
