Kevin Durant could take less money to help the Warriors...again

Thompson Jamal Crawford to Warriors gaining momentum? Plus new Warriors Plus  Minus episode

As many keep their finger on the pulse of the whirlwind that is the free agency period in the National Basketball Association, new reports have surfaced that Kevin Durant has agreed to a deal that will keep him with the Golden State Warriors for a season or two.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the deal can not be signed until Friday. On one hand, Crawford, 38, is an older player that would be joining a Golden State team looking to get younger. That gives Durant a chance to get a new deal with the Warriors, and there's little doubt that Durant is leaving Oakland.

Durant's salary for the upcoming season is $5.3 million less than he would have received had he agreed to a four-year contract.

Durant's return to the Warriors coincides with Paul George's recent announcement of resigning with OKC while at a party at Russell Westbrooks' home.

Indonesia sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, an area known for seismic upheavals and volcanic eruptions. The return flight NZ246 from Denpasar to Auckland has also been cancelled.

On the other hand, Crawford can still score, averaging 10.3 points in 20.7 minutes off the bench last season. The exact terms of his contract aren't now public, but Yahoo Sports is reporting Kerr will at least double the $5 million per year that he was making before.

The Lakers have always been mentioned as a top destination for James, and they have more salary cap space this summer than any team in the National Basketball Association. Paul missed the last two games of that series with an injury, and the Rockets wasted big leads in both of those games - then had to watch the Warriors sweep the Cavaliers for the National Basketball Association title.

In all, Sportsnet Stats noted National Basketball Association teams committed over $543 million in contracts in the first 30 minutes of free agency early Sunday morning.

"The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team". The NBA released the official cap and tax numbers for the coming season on Saturday night - the salary cap is $101,869,000, and the tax level is $123,733,000.
