If you didn't think the Golden State Warriors could get any better, you might be very, very wrong.
According to a report by Chris Broussard of ESPN, there are those around the league who believe Golden State is a possible landing spot for Kevin Durant. While he clarifies that none of his information is coming from people connected with Durant, the salary cap is expected to increase dramatically granting Golden State the flexibility to make room for the superstar forward.
Will it increase enough that they could already fit Durant's likely $30 million salary? Well, no. The Warriors would still have a lot of cap space to clear up in order to sign him.
Golden State has eight players under contract for next season. Add in any draft picks the Warriors may select and you're talking about some significant trades to clear salary. Still, the salary cap makes this at least possible to the point that people around the league are talking about it.
Of course, one has to ask if this is a move that would make sense. Golden State has won one championship already and look even better this year. Would they really consider trading away significant pieces of their team for Durant? It also does not address whether Durant would even be interested. LeBron James' move to Miami was a controversial one to say the very least and was widely seen as him chasing rings. A move to Golden State for Durant would have a similar feel.
It's yet another team to keep an eye on before what is sure to be a very interesting free agency.
