The shoe finally dropped in the Kevin Durant sweepstakes, as he has elected to sign with the Golden State Warriors for next season.

Durant made the announcement via a post on The Players Tribune on Monday and it is expected his deal with the team is four 2 years and $54.3 million, including a second-year player option. His joining the Warriors gives them an incredible lineup that includes himself, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Warriors were a 2/1 favorite to win it all next season prior to the Durant signing. Golden State is now listed with -150 odds to win, while the Cavaliers are listed with +350 odds. The Thunder went from +800 odds to now sitting at +6000 to win the title next season.

Bet on NBA Futures Odds

Durant spent his first nine seasons with Seattle/OKC. He averages 27.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists for his career. He was the NBA MVP in the 2013-14 season. The addition of Durant certainly makes a big splash, but the loss of him probably has a greater impact. The Thunder seemed to be building for a run at the title with the recent trade of Serge Ibaka, but now has lost one of its big two.
