The Golden State Warriors are in the beginning stages of a critical offseason during which the organization will confront myriad complex issues. One novel solution being considered is how the Warriors reportedly will consider executing a sign-and-trade involving Kevin Durant.

Durant’s already-uncertain future became significantly more complicated after the superstar went down with an Achilles injury during the NBA Finals that almost certainly will keep him out next season.

With so much in limbo, a new report suggests a sign-and-trade is on the table in deliberations between Durant and the Warriors.

During an appearance Thursday on ESPN’s “Get Up,” NBA insider Brian Windhorst laid out how such a deal, which would include Durant signing a max extension with the Warriors, could play out.

“One of the things that is being discussed right now is that the Golden State Warriors would offer Kevin Durant a five-year contract, $57 million extra than he could get signing elsewhere, let him rehab and then work with him to be traded,” Windhorst said, as transcribed by Bleacher Report. “Potentially to New York, potentially to somewhere else. It would be their way to sort of take care of him monetarily after what he just went through and also protect the franchise and get some assets.”

Further, Windhorst mentions how a sign-and-trade could prove mutually beneficial for the Warriors and Durant.

Kevin Durant reportedly views opting into Warriors contract as ‘last resort’

Kevin Durant reportedly views opting into Warriors contract as ‘last resort’ Kevin Durant’s summer got a lot more interesting when he suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles during Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and the injury could impact the amount of money teams are willing to invest in him. However, he may not be in nearly as much contract trouble as some people believe. Prior to the injury, it was a foregone conclusion that Durant would opt out of the final year of his deal with the Golden State Warriors.

It’s the only way Durant could get five years and play elsewhere. … The Warriors go into this as a bit of a last-ditch effort to not lose Kevin Durant for nothing. And what he would get out of it would be an extra $57 million come off of a devastating injury. He would be protected and get all of his money. Now, he’d have to trust the Warriors that they would actually work with you on a trade, but it’s something that has at least been discussed.”

How everything plays out remains to be seen, but such a solution arguably would leave both Durant and the Warriors pleased with the outcome.
