Steve Kerr OKs lucrative contract extension with Warriors

Golden State Warriors Draymond Green and Kevin Durant talk during the third quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Sunday

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors waits for play during a 127-123 overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 29, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. At that point, Durant will be able to sign his contract that will cement his time with the Warriors through the 2019-20 season and the choice to opt out to become an unrestricted free agent in the 2019 offseason. Durant could have agreed to a four-year deal worth roughly $160 million this summer, starting at $35.5 million in 2018-19. Next summer, Durant can become a free agent again if he chooses not to exercise his player option.

Steve Kerr has won 3 championships in his first 4 seasons as an National Basketball Association head coach, and the Golden State Warriors are making sure he remains their head coach for the foreseeable future.

Durant averaged 26.4 points per game to go along with 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists in the regular season.

Trump brushes off immigration bill's defeat
The bill would have required children to be released after 20 days, still apart from parents who continued to be detained. Another House bill on immigration, seen as taking a more hardline stance, failed last week.

Marcus Thompson from The Athletic reports that the Warriors have their sights set on 39-year-old reserve guard Jamal Crawford, and plan to make an even stronger push for him than they did last summer before he went to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Kerr, 52, just finished the fourth year of a five-year, $25 million contract he signed when he joined the Warriors in 2014.

Paul George (player option): He has one of the best all-around games in the league and is still fairly young at 28. A person familiar with the terms says Gay has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal to be back in silver and black next season. Stein clarified that it has been very clear all along that the 11-year veteran intends to stay with the Warriors, especially after experiencing a lot of success in his first two years in the Bay Area. I can't help but think that it would have kept Ariza around - the Rockets had his Bird rights and likely balked at $15 million a year because of luxury tax concerns - and likely would have given the Rockets more roster flexibility in the future.

PG made the decision without any free-agency meetings, said reports; and made the announcement at a house party in Oklahoma City hosted by Russell Westbrook. He did see a dip in rebounds per game though, following a career-high his first year with the team.
