Draymond Green agrees to four-year, $100M extension with Warriors, agent says

According to ESPN, Draymond Green will be staying with the Golden State Warriors, as the player agreed to a contract extension that will be worth $100 million over a period of four years. More specifically, the Splash Brother did not have surgery until he had signed a max contract with the Warriors in free agency.

Green's $99.7 million extension is less than half the total value of the max deal he could have asked for in 2020 - but it seems highly unlikely any team would have committed max money to Green anyway.

Originally selected by the Warriors with the 35th overall pick in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft, Green is the Warriors' all-time leader in regular season triple-doubles (22) and ranks in the franchise's top 10 in career steals (fifth), blocks (sixth) and assists (seventh). We're not done yet. I would love to see the floor this season.

Thompson said the Warriors had been fortunate to extend their success as long as they did without running into a spate of injuries like they experienced in the Finals, during which he went down after the Warriors had lost Kevin Durant to a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The moves cements the Warriors' new core, at least for the time being, as Curry, Thompson, Russell, Green (and Kevon Looney).

Thompson additionally predicts he's going to return again from his harm higher than ever.

Thompson, a five-time All-Star, averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game and shot 40.2% from beyond the arc in 2018-19.

Green has been an enormous part of that success. Green, Curry and Thompson are the lone remaining Warriors players to have been on each of their last three National Basketball Association championship teams, in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
