Durant is expected to choose between four teams: The Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets, and New York Knicks.
The Warriors have the advantage of winning two titles with Durant, and being able to offer him the most money. Not surprisingly, the Warriors are offering Durant everything they legally can.
