As some early extension candidates have already reached new deals this offseason, the Golden State Warriors must make a couple of decisions for the future.
GM Bob Myers and the Warriors front office have had a nice track record of securing long term extensions that turned out to be bargain contracts later (i.e. Stephen Curry). While Ezeli missed the 2013-14 season because of injury, he rebounded and became an integral cog of Golden State's bench unit.
It would not be a surprise if Ezeli decided to wait it out and enter restricted free agency next summer. With a bevy of teams able to throw money at players next summer, Ezeli could easily receive a more lucrative deal if he were to reject an extension now.
In spite of this, early signs suggest that the Warriors want Ezeli back in the long run and vice versa.
