While the Warriors did not announce the terms of the contracts, both deals are four-year contracts with team options in each of the final two years, as is standard for for first-round picks.
If both players last all four years, the Warriors can give them the qualifying offer to make them restricted free agents going into their fifth season.
While there is some flexibility with rookie contracts, there is a scale for players depending on their draft position. Per Spotrac, the scale for Kuminga as a No. 7 pick is $4,555,300 for this year, and $4,783,300 for next year, with options at $5,010,600 and $5,363,462, and a qualifying offer at $8,533,403.
For Moody, the No. 14 pick, the first two years would be $2,968,400 and $3,116,800, with options at $3,265,400 and $4,836,057, with a qualifying offer at $6,726,956.
Players do not need to sign for the rookie scale, but they cannot sign for less than 80% of those numbers, or for more than 120% of them.
Kuminga and Moody made their professional debuts on Wednesday in the California Classic, and led the team in scoring, with Moody scoring 19 on 7-for-18 shooting, and Kuminga adding 18 on 7-for-14 shooting.
