Vaunted free agent Kevin Durant announced on Monday his decision to join the Golden State Warriors. The signing gives the team coming off the best regular season in NBA history the league’s top free agent (at least of the ones actually looking for a new team) and provides $54 million in salary over two years to a player who signed a sneaker deal with Nike in 2014 that could hit $300 million in value over the life of the contract.
