  • Draymond Green, Kevin Durant pushing for Warriors to sign Jamal Crawford [report]

Steve Kerr recently signed a contract extension with the Golden State Warriors, and that was a no-brainer on both sides. But that doesn't mean Durant is looking for the long-term deal many will seek in the free agent market. If so, it would save the Warriors north of $5 million against next year's cap, increasing the likelihood that the champs use their mid-level exception in free agency.

The sacrifice paid off, as the two veterans played a key role throughout the postseason.

Golden State has won back-to-back championships and Durant has earned two straight Finals MVP awards during his time with the team.

Paul and the Rockets appeared primed to dethrone the Warriors after they took a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference Finals, but a hamstring injury that sidelined Houston's floor general ultimately derailed those hopes. But going to L.A. on Saturday doesn't necessarily provide any hint about his destination, since James has homes in Southern California.

Marcos Rojo Reveals What Lionel Messi Said In Inspirational Team Talk
An 86th minute strike from defender Marcos Rojo gave them a barely deserved 2-1 win over Nigeria , eliminating the African side. Banega is at midfield and Messi is not that far out in front of him, but he sees an open alley and decides to make his run.

And two other big names in free agency - Oklahoma City's Paul George and Houston's Chris Paul - have made a decision to stay put. "Process that", 76ers star Joel Embiid wrote on Twitter.

Beyond the big names at the top, this is an incredibly deep free-agent class.

Teams were allowed to begin negotiating with players once 12:01 a.m. EDT Sunday arrived, though the Warriors had already said Durant would get whatever he wanted.

But he agreed quickly this time to a one-year, $24.1 million deal and will finally be part of the Mavericks.
