Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are likely untouchable, but the Warriors do have decisions to make on the value of cap space vs. their own free agents. Key rotational player Andre Iguodala appears to be a part of the plan going forward, but the Warriors are workng on a deal to move center Andrew Bogut.
Here are the moves the Warriors need to make to fit Durant:
1. Trade Bogut’s contract to the Dallas Mavericks.
3. Withdraw the qualifying offers and renounce the cap holds of Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli.
The moves would leave Golden State with $26.6 million in cap space to sign Durant to a max contract.
However, doing so would leave the Warriors with only the minimum and room mid-level ($2.9 million) to fill out their roster.
