Kevin Durant’s free agent decision to join the Golden State Warriors will be a major point of discussion during the next round of labor negotiations between the NBA and the players’ union.

Commissioner Adam Silver doesn’t like the well-earned perception that, really, only two “super” teams will have a true shot at winning the championship next season.

Silver says the League wants a more even distribution of talent.

Per the AP:

He supported Kevin Durant’s right to join a Golden State team already loaded with talent, but acknowledged there were some concerns about having a league where it seems only two teams have a chance to win the finals.

 

He said there have been talks with the players’ union about changing some of the elements in the free-agent system, and that it will be a part of the upcoming collective bargaining negotiations.

 

“I don’t think it’s good for the league,” Silver said about the possibility of uneven competitive balance.
