Kevin Durant isn't going anywhere, anytime soon.

 

The Golden State Warriors All-Star forward told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on Thursday that he'll re-sign with the Golden State Warriors this summer, ending speculation on another move - at least for the near-term.

 

Armed with a commanding 3-0 lead over the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors are on the precipice of yet another championship, which would be Durant's second in a row.

I'm planning on staying with the Warriors, and we'll figure the rest out.

Durant is completing the first year of a heavily-discounted two-year, $51 million deal, that included a player option this summer and an opt-out clause for the 2018-19 season.

 

Sources told ESPN that the former MVP would decline the player option and become an unrestricted free agent this summer so that he could re-sign with the Warriors on a restructured deal - something more in line with his market value.
