But not everyone was interested in waiting around.

Durant will be paid about $30.5 million this coming season, about $5 million less than he could have commanded if the deal was structured differently.

He averaged 18.6 points and 7.9 assists last season with the Rockets, who went 65-17 led by Paul and newly minted NBA MVP James Harden.

As a player he won three championships with the Chicago Bulls and another two with the San Antonio Spurs.

There will be other teams with interest in signing the veteran scorer as well this offseason.

The Los Angeles Lakers have a new superstar.

-At the stroke of midnight, Paul tweeted that he has "unfinished business" in Houston.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that Kerr and the Warriors are in the process of finalizing a contract extension that would make him one of the richest coaches in the league.

The star point guard wasted no time once the free agency window opened, and has chose to stay put with the team that finished last season with the NBA's best regular-season record.

"I'm here to stay", George told the crowd at the party. "I'm here to stay".

In Oklahoma City, Paul George is returning.


We are looking at the top players on the market before 2018 free agency begins. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants".

The 38-year-old guard's statistics have dipped a bit over the last decade of his career.

Mario Hezonja is leaving Orlando to play for David Fizdale and the New York Knicks. The Mavs finally are getting DeAndre Jordan.

Lance Stephenson is joining LeBron James in Los Angeles.

The Denver Nuggets signed two key players. He shot 51.6 percent from the field, 41.9 percent from three-point range and 88.9 percent from the free throw line.

"Kevin Durant is going to be the single biggest story in the National Basketball Association now that this [LeBron's free agency] is over", Lowe said. The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported that Cousins would be an "increasingly likely target" for the Lakers on a short-term, max-level contract. Philadelphia has young stars in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to entice James, who was flattered earlier this year when a company erected billboards in OH urging him to join the Sixers.

The second year is at Baynes' option, meaning he could be a free agent again next summer.

Having another outside shooter and playmaker will make life much easier for the Bay Area franchise and add another weapon to their bench.

A person with knowledge of the agreement says Robinson has agreed to a one-year contract with a team option for 2019-20.

Kerr is entering the final season of the five-year, $25 million deal that he signed in May of 2014. The third year of the deal is reportedly not guaranteed. This year, an even stronger push is being made for Jamal Crawford.
