The Golden State Warriors are looking to retain their core strength.
According to The Athletic’s reporters Shams Charania and Anthony Slater, Golden State hopes to stick with ‘The Dancing Bear’ Draymond Green (forward, 198cm, 104kg).
Golden State and Green are known to be mutually interested in signing a multi-year contract. However, with Green likely to want a long-term contract, the key question is what size contract Golden State can offer.
Green has a player option to become a free agent after this season. He will earn an estimated $27.59 million in salary for the upcoming 2023-2024 season if he stays with the option. However, it is natural to want a new contract as the contract expires at the end of next season. Should he head into the transfer market, he’s likely to receive a lot of attention.
He has appeared in 73 games this season. In his last four seasons, he hasn’t played more than 70 games in the regular season. However, he played more than 70 games for the first time since the last 2017-2018 season, playing in many games this season. He averaged 8.5 points (.527 .305 .713), 7.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1 steal in 31.5 minutes per game.
He averaged more than 7 rebounds in three consecutive seasons. Although the average number of assists has declined slightly for three consecutive seasons, he has scored the most average points in the last five seasons. He also played an active part in this playoff. He averaged 9.4 points (.462 .250 .727), 6.9 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1 block in 30.6 minutes over 12 games played. Although he was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs, his performance was astonishing.
After all, he’s key to Golden State’s offensive tactics, so it’s only natural that Golden State wants to stick with him no matter what. However, the size of the contract is expected to be a key factor as the current expenditure is excessive. It is the core of Golden State’s defense and at the same time plays a significant role in offensive tactics. He can help his teammates score economically through screens and passes.
Meanwhile,메이저놀이터 Golden State will start an extension contract (four years, $128 million) with Jordan Pool, signed last summer, from next season. After adding the contracts of Green and Dante DiVincenzo with player options, the total annual salary for the next season is over $211.68 million. Next season’s squad spending, which has been confirmed so far, is the highest in the league. When signing a renewal contract with Green, it is expected that Poole’s future will affect it.
