Don't panic Warriors fans, but it appears Kevin Durant is about to become a free agent.

ESPN is reporting that Durant will not exercise his $28 million option for next year.

The good news is that Durant will likely re-sign with the team, and won't seek the maximum deal for which he would be eligible.

That would potentially free up salary cap space to sign other players, including Andre Iguadala.

"Free agency is predictably unpredictable. I love Andre and hopefully we can find a way to make it work for not just him but all of our guys," Warriors General Manager Bob Myers said.

Along with Durant and Iguadala, the warriors also need to re-sign Stephen Curry.

The Dubs have only five players under contract for next year Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are among them.
