Draymond Green entered the offseason with a vow to the Golden State Warriors that they would still become a contender for NBA titles. That sentiment has not really changed.
The Golden State Warriors have reached an agreement with Green regarding a four-year extension that is worth almost $100 million. This new deal will start next year for the 2020-2021 season, so he will be under contract with the team until the 2023-24 season.
Earlier, Klay Thompson also signed a contract extension with the Warriors that was at $190 million. The other Warrior’s star, Stephen Curry, on the other hand, is still under contract until the 2021-22 season. At this point, the Warriors still have three major pieces to hold their team together for around three more years.
In an interview, Green said, “I think everybody thinks it’s the end of us… But that’s just not smart. We’re not done yet… But, yeah, I hear a lot of that noise, ‘It’s the end of a run’ and all that jazz. I don’t see that happening though. We’ll be back.”
Despite losing Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala during free agency, the Warriors were at least able to acquire D’Angelo Russell, All-Star guard, and added him to their roster. The team also lost Shaun Livingston and DeMarcus Cousins, which is why there have been so much talk about the era of the Golden State Warriors ending and that nobody really knows what is going to happen next.
