The Golden State Warriors are expected to have a busy summer after winning the 2022 NBA title a few days ago. Kevon Looney, who had a great run with Golden State last season, will be an unrestricted free agent.
Also, breakout star Jordan Poole will be eligible for a rookie scale extension entering the last year of his rookie contract. Moreover, Otto Porter Jr. and Gary Payton Jr. will be free agents this summer, while Andrew Wiggins enters the last year of his current deal.
According to the Warriors’ insider Connor Letourneau, Jordan Poole, who will be the team’s most interesting offseason stories, Golden State want to retain the scoring guard and he is expected to receive an offer around $100M for four years.
Jordan Poole was one of the standout performers for the Golden State Warriors during this year’s playoff run. He averaged 17.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.8 assists during the postseason, all while shooting 39.1% from beyond the arc.
Poole is a huge part of the Golden State Warriors’ young core, which features lottery picks James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga, and Moses Moody. He is a homegrown talent, and also a fan-favorite player.
Draymond Green, Curry and Thompson are due to earn a combined $122.7 million — $3.5 million over the total projected salary cap for next season. This time next year, they will have to pay Andrew Wiggins if they want to retain him past the 2022-23 season.
