Kevin Durant will join the Golden State Warriors, he announced Monday on the Players’ Tribune. It’s a stunning free-agent coup for the defending Western Conference champions, who won a record 73 games last season and now add another of the league’s premier talents to an existing core of two-time MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. ESPN reported it’s a two-year, $54 million deal with a player option for Year 2. Durant, 27, said joining the Warriors will facilitate his “growth as a player” and “evolution as a man” in announcing the decision that alters the NBA landscape.
