It seems like Jordan Poole‘s future is with the Golden State Warriors, where he’ll be donning a Warriors jersey for the coming years. ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that the Warriors and the 23-year-old have agreed to a four-year, $140 million deal extension. The new contract guarantees Poole’s future with the Warriors through the 2026-27 NBA season.
Following in the footsteps of Poole, Wojnarowski confirmed that the Warriors and Andrew Wiggins have also agreed to a four-year, $109 million deal. The forward, who was about to enter the last year of his deal, will now remain in the Bay Area until 2027 as well.
Thus, it’s no secret that the Golden State Warriors have a massive payroll. Adding Poole and Wiggins’ cash into the equation casts doubt on the long-term viability of at least one of the team’s cornerstones.
How Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole’s new deals affect Draymond Green
If Draymond Green does not exercise his option to remain under his current contract for another year, which is very unlikely, he will become a free agent. In March, he will be 33, and his playing days are likely numbered as per CBS.
He may be weighed down by the impending expiration of his next contract. If Green does not impress any other teams this year, he may be forced to settle for less money from Golden State next summer.
