russell westbrook discusses fractured relationship with kevin durant

kevin durant side-steps a question about taking less money


new orleans — this summer, kevin durant will have a financial decision to make. he’s likely to opt out of his contract and seek a new max deal, which is projected to start around $36 million.if he does so — and stephen curry takes the max offer he will receive from the warriors — golden state will burst over the cap and, because durant can’t be signed with bird rights, will be severely limited in the construction of the rest of its roster.that would force both shaun livingston and andre iguodala, who are also free agents, to either take a chunk below their market value or move elsewhere.but durant could nix that issue by taking a starting salary of $31.8 million — a 20 percent increase from this season, but about $4 million less than his projected max. that would allow the warriors to sign
