Warriors Re-Sign Draymond Green to 4-year, $100-Million Extension
Kevin Durant may be gone, but the foundation remains the same for the Golden State Warriors.
This weekend, the team announced that they have reached an agreement with star forward Draymond Green. Entering the final year of his current deal, the Warriors have reported the three-time NBA champion with an extension worth $100-million over four years. The deal will kick in following next season.
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.

Green initially signed a five-year, $82-million deal in 2015 as a restricted free agent and was widely expected to opt out of the final year of his deal.
With the signing, the Warriors now have Green, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and D’Angelo Russell all under contract for at least the next three seasons, after which Curry will be a free agent. Earlier on in the offseason, the rehabbing Thompson signed a five-year, $189-million extension to remain with the Warriors and Russell was acquired by the Western Conference champions via a sign-and-trade.
Thompson is expected to return from his ACL tear mid-season so to suggest that we have seen the last of the Warriors dynasty is far from the truth.
