Kevin Durant Hopes to Sign Extension with Thunder
"Yeah, that’s what I want to do,” Durant said about signing an extension when he first is eligible, which would be after negotiations can start July 1 and until Oct. 31. "I want to be here. I want to be part of this organization.”
"If they did offer [a max contract], that would be something that nobody could turn down. I would be blessed and privileged and honored."
– Kevin Durant If the Thunder this summer offers Durant a maximum contract extension, which would be in the neighborhood of $80 million over five years, Durant will reach quickly for a pen.
"If they did offer that, that would be something that nobody could turn down,” Durant said. "I would be blessed and privileged and honored. But, at the same time, I’ve got to keep working. … It would be good (to sign this summer). To know that I can be with a team for a couple (more) years will be cool.”
