There won't be a "will he stay or will he go?" narrative with the Warriors this upcoming season.
All-Star forward Draymond Green was set to hit free agency next summer, but the five-time All-Defense selection has agreed to a four-year, $100 million contract extension with the Warriors, multiple NBA sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole. The agreement was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Told by multiple NBA sources that Draymond Green and Warriors have agreed on 4-year extension, beginning 2020, as first reported by @wojespn. Also told contract has not yet been signed, despite what some outlets are reporting, but that formality is expected very soon.— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) August 3, 2019
The extension brings Green's total contract to five years, $118 million.
Green's extension pays him $22.2M, $24M, $25.8M and $27.6M over the course of the deal. The Warriors will have $129M and $138M committed to their four max players - Curry, Thompson, Green and Russell - in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons, respectively.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 3, 2019
A three-time NBA champion, Green has been an integral part of the Warriors' run to five straight NBA Finals.
Following the departure of Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston this offseason, the Warriors are looking to reload around their core three of Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, as well as new addition D'Angelo Russell.
With all four now under contract for the foreseeable future, the Warriors can focus on putting the right pieces around them in order to contend for championships for the remainder of their primes.
