Warriors GM says team will give Kevin Durant whatever deal he wants

Jimmy Kimmel has proved time and again that he has no reservations about pulling out all the stops for a good prank.

In the Christmas Day battle between the Cavs and Warriors, the Michigan State product wore custom Nike shoes featuring Arthur celebrating Christmas. "Just thinking about all that I've been through this year with the ankle and the knee and all that type of stuff, she's just kept me sane".

"I just don't think it'll happen. This place gives me that", Durant said.

And while the Warriors will always think big, the truth is that if Golden State wants to go for a third-straight title next year, they'll have to make some changes to this roster - specifically to the bench.

Durant, who turns 30 in September, could ink a five-year deal in July. He praised Golden State's "unselfish environment", in which Curry was the NBA's reigning two-time MVP when Durant arrived, and said he was happy to have been able to put himself in a discussion of "the greats", such as "Kobe, M.J., LeBron, Kareem". "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on".

So then, was this just some light-hearted chirping from Myers to Durant, or an indication that the Dubs may actually be thinking of just letting the former MVP and four-time scoring champ walk away?

Per the Washington Post , ethics experts are concerned that the extraordinary outside cash flow could create intense conflicts of interest.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about West's quote on Monday, and downplayed the idea that anything insane was going on behind the scenes.

But signing older guys - whether that be ones who were on the team this past year or a new batch of ring chasers - is still something the Warriors need to do this offseason.

He doesn't expect any difficulties in getting a deal worked out.

The point about Curry is particularly jabbing as he leveraged those same comments into a "super-max" contract last season, something that's definitely on the table for Durant this summer as well. Draymond's got two more. "I know they're going to view it as a ideal career no matter what".

"Whatever he wants. There's no negotiation", said Myers.
