Sean Marx, general manager of the basketball network, hopes to renew their contracts with the three giants of the team – Durant, harden and Owen. They all have two years left in their contracts and have player options for the 2022-23 season.
“First of all, you like to be in that environment, you enjoy the game, which is the most important. I think the three of us enjoy working side by side with each other, “Durant said when talking about contract renewal.” but it’s a personal matter. Everyone is different. I believe that when the time is ripe, we will make the right decision. ”
