It’s been a very interesting summer for the Golden State Warriors since losing the NBA Finals to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors. Kevin Durant left in free agency to team up with Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets and soon, Nets Point Guard D’Angelo Russell was traded to the Warriors.
Klay Thompson tore his ACL in the Finals and could return sometime next season but not before the all-star break. His commitment to Golden State is real though as he re-signed with them in free agency on a 5-year, $190 million deal. Draymond Green is also staying loyal to the team he’s been with since he got drafted in 2012.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Green has agreed to a four-year, $100 million deal with the Warriors. His agent, Rich Paul, confirmed the extension. This new deal starts in the 2020-21 season which brings his total contract at five years, $118 million.
With free agency looming next summer, three-time All-Star Draymond Green has agreed to a four-year, $100M maximum contract extension with Golden State, agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports tells ESPN.

The Warriors should still be in the playoff mix next season but a recovering Klay Thompson and losing Kevin Durant will make it tough to beat contenders out West such as the Clippers, Lakers, and Rockets. Expect Golden State to possibly be a fifth or sixth seed.
