And if reports are to be believed, KD will be making full use of that player option.

Last summer, Kevin Durant accepted a deal well below his market value.

The Golden State Warriors superstar plans to opt out of his contract this summer before restructure his deal in order to remain with the team, ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Wednesday, citing National Basketball Association sources.

The All-Star has made a decision to opt-out of his current contract of $26 million to restructure a new deal with the Warriors, league sources told ESPN. "It has yet to be decided what contractual route Durant will take, sources say, but there are no real incentives - for himself or for the team - to take such a drastic reduction in pay this time around".

Unfortunately for the rest of the league, there is nearly no chance Durant opts out in search of a change of scenery.

The Pentagon was suspected to be conducting air strikes in Syria after receiving threats about chemical attacks. USA government sources said Washington's assessment of the Saturday attack was that chemical weapons were used.

As Haynes noted, the Warriors are no longer cap-tied this summer, so the former Texas Longhorn is not harming Golden State by asking for what he is really worth.

Durant told The Athletic in March that the contract was something that worked with him at the time. The financial terms of the deal raised eyebrows as a player of Durant's caliber could have commanded around $10 million more on a max salary. His offensive game is still among the best in the league, as Durant is averaging 26.4 points and 5.4 assists per game.

The reigning NBA Finals MVP won his first title with Warriors a year ago. Alternatively, he could sign a hybrid of the two, in a three-year deal with a player option after the second season.

A three-year deal with guarantees of $35.3 million for 2018-19, $38.2 million for 2019-20, then a player option worth $41 million for 2020-21. Durant will do so in order to rework his contract, that is now slated to pay him $26.2 million in 2018-19, a figure well below his market value.
