The shift of power in the Western Conference has grown even more favorably towards the Golden State Warriors, as Kevin Durant has agreed to join the team.

Sources report that the contract is two-years for $54.3 million, and will include a player option after the first year.

Notably the top player in this year’s NBA Free Agency, Durant met with six teams during the past three days — Oklahoma City, Golden State, San Antonio, Boston, Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Now 27 years old, Durant has spent all nine seasons of his career with the Thunder, in which he won the MVP in 2014, as well as garnering seven All-­Star selections, while averaging 27.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

Durant’s decision was first published in the Players’ Tribune, which you can read in its entirety here.

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant wrote. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.

“With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
