Kevin Durant will opt out of contract and restructure deal with Warriors Kevin Durant will opt out of contract and restructure deal with Warriors
- April 12, 2018

Because he turned down more money, the Warriors were able to retain core veterans Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. Since there are no real incentives for Durant or for his team to take such a drastic reduction in pay this time around, it is therefore justified that Durant opt-out to seek for a better contract this time around.

There are just six league games left and Kane now trails the Liverpool forward by five goals.

Leroy Sane converted after Loris Karius' weak punch and a goalmouth scramble, but the winger's strike was called back for a marginal offside.

- April 10, 2018

Rice has become a key element of David Moyes' back three and with the Hammers still just four points from the drop, the 19-year-old's form in the defensive third could yet prove decisive come May.
