Durant said he deserves a massive deal, like several players around the league have received.
Kevin Durant revealed the one thing he’s thinking about when he enters free agency next year.
The two-time NBA champion is already rumored to potentially join LeBron James with the Lakers or head to the Knicks, but Durant said money will be a big factor in his decision.
“I am thinking about the money I’m going to get,” Durant told The Athletic. “I never got the (massive) deal. I’ve just seen a bunch of dudes around the league making so much money — and I’m happy for them.
“But I know I deserve that, too. That’s the only thing I’m probably thinking about, to be honest.”
Durant re-signed with the Warriors in July and will make $30 million this season.
The 30-year-old forward has helped the Warriors win back-to-back NBA championships since joining Golden State in 2016 and he has earned two straight Finals MVP awards during his time with the team.
Durant, a nine-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points and 6.8 rebounds last season.
