Marc Stein of The New York Times said that Durant will be paid $30.5 million next season.
Since joining Golden State, Kevin Durant's free agency has been as anticlimactic as the Warriors' title pursuits. Center/Forward Nikola Jokic was signed to a max-deal for five years worth $146.5 million and guard Will Barton to a four-year deal worth $54 million.
Paul George (player option): He has one of the best all-around games in the league and is still fairly young at 28.
James agrees to 4-year, US$154m deal with Lakers
He will sign a 1-year, $4.5 million deal, a little bit more than he was set to make in IN, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes . The Cavs are now faced with a roster that has more than $102 million in guaranteed contracts, and little chance to contend.
The margin widened among the Warriors and Rockets- the team that pushed Golden State to the brink of elimination, leading by 11 points in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals- on Day 1 of free agency.
Durant, 29, averaged 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 68 regular-season games in 2017-18, missing time due to a rib cartilage fracture.
A year ago, Durant declined to opt in for the second year of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent. But going to L.A. on Saturday doesn't necessarily provide any hint about his team for next season, since James has homes in Southern California.

The minimum team salary for the 2018-19 season is $91,682,000. Players nearing the end of their primes or career will jump at the chance to join the Warriors as they seek their third National Basketball Association championship in a row.

Durant choosing this deal could have major repercussions for the Warriors later on as they seek to sign other players this offseason. I don't have any desire to go anywhere else, and I'm not gonna play that card and play it out as a free agent and do all that stuff. The Warriors did not re-sign center JaVale McGee, who announced Sunday night he will join James with the Lakers on a one-year deal.
