NBA loud links: Kevin Durant agrees to shocking two-year $54.3 million deal with Golden State Warriors

Longtime Oklahoma City icon Kevin Durant has agreed to a free-agent deal with the Golden State Warriors

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

For Oklahoma City fans, the unthinkable has happened: Kevin Durant has joined forces with the rival Golden State Warriors. This stirring announcement came early Monday morning when Durant agreed to a two-year $54.3 million deal to play alongside his recent Western Conference Finals conquerors.

The four-time NBA scoring champion will now comprise a lethal All-World quartet flanked by Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. It almost seems unfair to think of the grand possibilities -- and competitive imbalance -- that lie ahead for the Warriors.

While Durant enjoyed a brilliant run in OKC, his decision is among the most shocking in the history of free-agency. Here is the immediate fallout from Kevin Durant's decision to become a Golden State Warrior.
