The Golden State Warriors and Draymond Green have agreed on a four-year $100 million contract extension, according to multiple reports.
Green’s agent Rich Paul first informed ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski of the terms of the contract, and the Chronicle’s Connor Letourneau confirmed the deal with multiple league sources.
The former NBA Defensive Player of the Year was set to become a free agent after the 2019-2020 season, and according to Wojnarowski, the contract extension starts in the 2020-2021 season. This means Green is now on a five-year, $118 million deal that would keep him with the Warriors through 2024.
Had the Warriors not reached an extension with Green, he likely would have been one of the biggest names in the 2020 free agent market. Newly-acquired Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis is also entering the final year of his contract, but is expected by many to re-sign with the Lakers after the season.
Wojnarowski reports that Green’s contract extension pays him $22.2 million, $24 million, $25.8 million and $27.6 million over the course of the deal.
During the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 seasons, the Warriors will be paying $129 million and $138 million to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, D’Angelo Russell and Green.
