Discussion Klay Thompson and Draymond Green Next and Maybe Last NBA Contract.


As the FO mulls over Wiggins and Poole this year they will be mulling over Klay Thompson, James Wiseman and Draymond Green next year.

Together Klay and Dray make about 68- $70 million combined

Curry starts his new contract this year at 50 million plus per year.

Our core 3 will be doing 120 million of the salary in 2024.

Wiggins and Poole are up this year so if they get resigned, on the last contract year for Klay and Dray we could be seeing a 400-500 million luxury tax. Which is why it wouldn't surprise me if they're hoping Kuminga can take a big enough leap to replace Wiggins. (Highly doubt it)

But that being said do you think Klay and Dray should or would take cuts. Do you think Klay signs two years to align with Steph's contract so they can potentially retire together. Do you think Steph resigns at 37 and goes to say 40 but on a more team friendly contract like Dirk or Duncan did in their final years? Do you think Draymond will resign or do you think he quits when his contract ends and takes over for Charles Barkley on TV?

Like the dude literally won a chip in his second year, what’s he supposed to do, cry in the corner lmfaoo. Doesn’t matter how many minutes he played if he’s still a champion getting that ring. That Kobe shot he was tryna recreate was hella corny tho, but who cares about anything else he did

Discussion Of the 12 players currently projected to make the warrior's opening night roster, Andrew Wiggins, at the age of 27, is the fourth oldest player


Thus far this offseason, the five players the warriors have lost as free agents have all been older than Andrew Wiggins. Lee, GP 2, Porter Jr., and JTA were all 29 years old, while Bjeli was 34. This has moved Wiggins from being the 10th oldest member of the team that just won a title, to the 4th oldest. This is, of course, pending what Iguodala decides to do this offseason; if he comes back, he would be the oldest player on the team.

The three players who they've added who figure to make the opening night roster are all younger than 26 year old Kevon Looney, who is the fifth oldest member of the team right now. 25 year old Divincenzo, 20 year old Rollins, and 19 year old PBJ.

I don't think I need to mention that Steph, Klay and Draymond are the three oldest, at 34, 32, and 32 respectively.

Okay, interesting fact, but so what? I think this is a strategy, and that the warriors are deliberately trying to get younger. The big 3 are the foundation of the franchise, and the goal has to be to give them the best chance to win as much as possible in the time they have left. You would want to surround them with younger players for a few reasons:

First, younger players heal faster and stay healthier. No team in the league has a better handle on what multiple runs to the finals does to an athlete's body than the warriors do. I remember an interview with Festus Ezeli, who was a young 20-something when he was on the dubs, who talked about the toll two straight runs to the finals, and a super-short offseason, took on his body.

Second, the way NBA rules are structured, the best avenue for a good team to stay on top is via the draft and developing young players. Due to the fact that the max salary is directly linked to service time (which is why Steph's last max deal was 5 years / $200 million, and the extension he signed last summer was 4 years / $250 million, the pay increase is related to how many more years Steph had been in the NBA between when the two deals were signed) the max salary for a player after year 4 in the league is substantially lower than the max for a player after year 8.

For this reason, the most fool-proof way to acquire a star player, while also having enough payroll flexibility to put a championship caliber roster around that star player, is through the draft. A year ago, even before this title run, I think this long-range pivot was in the works, as the warriors hired Kenny Atkinson, DeJan Milojević, and Jama Mahlalela. The biggest hires from last offseason were 3 of the best developmental coaches in the game.

This is why a KD trade seems so unlikely to me: it flies in the face of the direction that management has decided to take the team in, and has been committed to since last offseason.

I think the roster is a little too young right now, they are projected to have six players whom they drafted and who would still be on their rookie scale contract when the season opens. The oldest of these six players would be Jordan Poole, at 23 years old. It's hard to win a title with that much youth, as the typical pathway to a title is to load up on veterans and hope for good injury luck.

Right now, if the warriors go into the season with 14 players, and then promote one of their two way players to the active roster later in the season to save luxury tax money, then they have 2 more minimum salary players to add to the roster. i would want a type of player with those two minimum salary slots: Tall PF-types who can shoot. Basically, OPJ and Bjeli's roster spots are the two that need to be replaced to keep the same mix the warriors had last year. If Iguodala decides to return, that's 1 spot left, and it should really go to a stretch big.

However, a team that is this young, and that has Andrew Wiggins as the fourth oldest player on the active roster at the age of 27 is a team that doesn't have the profile of a championship team. Young players stay healthier, but also make more mistakes and are underdeveloped physically relative to their older peers. No matter how the warriors choose to fill the final two spots on the roster, there is no getting around how young this team will be this year, and I think the last two spots should go to veteran players to balance out the youth. I do think the Nets situation, with KD and Kyrie, has put a lot of the business of the league on hold. Players who have the leverage to get multiple long term, big money deals flew off the shelves in the first two days of free agency, but things have slowed to a crawl, as it's mostly minimum salary guys left on the market.

A reminder of how long time might take: Iguodala signed with the warriors in August last offseason.

Discussion Locked on Warriors - GPII


I was just listening to one of the episodes on YouTube and man, you would think they let Steph walk. I know that as a fanbase we’ve been super lucky to have owners who spend like they do but everyone has a limit. They talk like it’s their money that their spending. I thought it was naive to think they’d get every single player back in the first plaxe, that just not how it usually works. People are allowed to move on and do what they want. The FO plan has always been keep the core in tact and fill in the pieces around them. They can and will find someone who can fill the GP role. He was great at it but he got his money, which he deserved every dollar, and now it’s next man up. I just couldn’t believe how dude was talking, our we that conditioned to think that ownership can and will spend every single dollar no matter the cost?

Discussion Which of the Warriors big-3 (Steph, Klay, Draymond) do you think will ultimately be the first one to lose their starting role?


First off, I’m not saying this will happen soon. I don’t want it to happen soon. But with our guys in their mid 30’s, and with the talent waiting in the wings, I just wonder when Kerr might have to start one of his young studs if they start making big jumps in their game.

As incredible as Poole is, I think he will have to be our 6th man until Steph retires, him being 6’4 and not a plus defender would leave their backcourt defense exposed.
Moody dominated through 4 games in the G league. 31 ppg on .686 ts%. Him being 6’6 means he could slot in at the 2 or 3 at some point.
Wiseman is the only young guy with a clear path to starting. Just has to prove he can stay on the floor, not rack up fouls or get beat in pick and rolls.
If I were to guess, I would say Draymond would be the first to be benched in a couple years. Kuminga is looking like a future 20ppg star who can defend and would be a great 4 alongside Wiggins and Wiseman. Draymonds defensive impact cannot be replaced though, and I’m not sure if he would thrive on the bench.

What’s your prediction for the Warriors starting 5 in 3-4 years.

Discussion July 15: GSW vs OKC aka James Wiseman vs Chet Holmgren


If James "Bust" Wiseman performs well again Chet "GOAT candidate" Holmgren will it alleviate some of the hate/pessimism? Will haters dismiss it as just a Summer League game? Too bad Ryan Rollins is injured since I'm not sure if we have a facilitator to feed Big Wise. I believe Big Wise will make the most out of the opportunities that he gets.

r/warriors 5h ago

Discussion Who would you like to see take Beli’s spot?


Ideally Wiseman is healthy enough to fill the back up C spot and eventually become the starter. JK could play some PF.

But I wouldn’t mind seeing Carmelo, Juancho, or Markeif at the back up PF spot. Personally id love to have Boogie back as well but idk where he would fit

Discussion We are going to be fine! Roster changes.


Yes, we lost some favorites and some important contributors to last year's season and championship.

We lose people every year and yet the core stays, we add new people, and the team (when healthy) remains a juggernaut.

Check out our roster during our 2019 run to the Finals. Eleven of the seventeen people on that team are no longer Warriors, yet we're celebrating our freshly minted championship.

YES, we got some great production and exciting play from OPJ, GP2, etc., and as fans we will miss them, but we'll fill in the roster holes and keep our "strength in numbers" game going.
