WOJ BOMB! WOJ BOMB! The Golden State Warriors woke up the NBA on Saturday morning via ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reporting that the Dubs’ beloved enforcer Draymond Green has come to terms with the ballclub on a pretty sweet agreement.
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.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 3, 2019
This is fantastic news for the dynasty, as they were able to lock down Green and Klay Thompson in the same summer. This contract would keep Green in the blue and gold until he’s 34 years old.
Green played in 66 games last season, averaging 7.4 PPG, 7.3 REB, and 6.9 AST, leading the team in dimes per game.
His production cranked up in the postseason after a widely publicized weight-loss program, culminating in his brilliant Western Conference Finals series, when he averaged 16.5 PPG, 11.8 REB, 8.8 AST, 2.3 STL, and 2.8 blocks.
The Warriors will need his playmaking and defensive intensity from the front court more than ever with the roster being retooled on the fly in the absence of Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala.
Check out his season review from our very own Jannelle Moore and then dig some of his dominat postseason highlights as we celebrate the return of Dray!
