Green and the Warriors have agreed on the terms of a four-year extension worth almost $100 million, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Saturday. He admitted that he was surprised and humbled when the Warriors opted to offer him a five-year, $190 million contract this summer.
Green's new deal will start with the 2020-21 season, so he is under contract through 2023-24. "But that's just not smart".
New law allows Saudi women to travel without male consent
Saudi Arabia is facing heightened scrutiny over its human rights record, including its ongoing trial of the women activists. That includes Loujain al-Hathloul, a prominent rights activist who marked her 30th birthday this week in a Saudi prison.
The Warriors are coming off an NBA Finals loss to the Toronto Raptors and lost Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets in free agency. I think his ability to play above the rim and run the floor is going to be great for us. Still, it's going to be tough to see where the Warriors' scoring comes from next season, while still keeping Steph and Draymond fit and healthy.
The three-time National Basketball Association champion was scheduled to become a free agent after the 2019-20 season. "He's played an enormous part in shaping our organization over the last seven years".
The Golden State Warriors are locking up All-Star forward Draymond Green to a max contract extension. On top of that, the five-year deal could have possibly escalated as high as $235.5 million if he qualified for the 35-percent "supermax" this season by making an All-NBA team or winning Defensive Player of the Year.
