On October 16th, Beijing time, according to the latest report of the NBA’s famous Woshen, Golden State Warriors reached a contract renewal agreement with Poole and Wiggins at the same time. Poole signed a four-year contract of $140 million, while Wiggins significantly reduced his salary and signed a four-year contract of $109 million. Golden State Warriors spent $249 million to keep Poole and Wiggins at the same time, which is undoubtedly a huge surprise for Golden State Warriors’ road to championship in the next few years!
After the news of the famous God Woshen broke the news, according to several ESPN sources, Golden State Warriors and Jordan Poole formally reached a four-year and $140 million early contract renewal agreement. The guaranteed amount of the contract is USD 123 million, with an incentive clause. After the incentive clause is completed, the contract amount can be expanded to 140 million.
Jordan Poole was selected by Golden State Warriors with the 28th overall pick in the first round of the 2019 draft, and then signed a four-year, $10.09 million rookie contract with the Warriors. At present, there is one year left in the rookie contract, which is worth $3.9 million. The new contract will not take effect until the 2023-24 season. 2? In the 2001-22 regular season, Poole played 30 minutes per game with 18.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4 assists and 0.8 steals. In the playoffs, he played 27.5 minutes per game with 17.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 0.8 steals.
Subsequently, the American media StatMuse exposed a set of data, ranking the top six in the average annual salary of 2019 rookie’s early contract renewal, and Morant, Zion and Garland’s average annual salary was $38.86 million, which tied for the top three. Poole’s average annual salary after renewal is as high as $35 million, ranking fourth, followed by Hiro’s average annual salary of $30 million and Barrett’s average annual salary of $26.79 million.
At the same time, after Poole’s 4-year contract extension of $140 million, Golden State Warriors will have four players with annual salary exceeding $28 million in 2023-24 season, and these four players are rookies cultivated by Golden State Warriors themselves: Curry’s annual salary is $52 million, Clay’s annual salary is $43 million, Poole’s annual salary is $35 million, and Chasing Dreams Green’s annual salary is $28 million. The success rate of rookie like Golden State can be said to be the only one in the league.
In addition, according to the famous story of God Wo, Golden State Warriors renewed their contract with All-Star Wiggins for four years, with a contract value of 109 million dollars. Wiggins will be tied with Golden State Warriors for five years, with a total contract value of 143 million dollars. Mouth Wiggins earned $33.6 million this season. The salary of the new contract will be reduced to $24.3 million in the first year and $26.3 million in the second year. Golden State Warriors gave Mouth Wiggins the option in the last year.
Kou Wiggins was the No.1 draft pick in 2014. On the day he was selected, he was traded to Timberwolves by Cavaliers. He stayed there for six years until he was traded to Golden State Warriors in 2020. In the 2021-22 season, Wiggins played the masterpiece of his career, averaging 17.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. He was selected as an NBA All-Star for the first time.
Wiggins’ performance in the playoffs was even more amazing, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, with a shooting percentage of 46.9%, a 3-point shooting percentage of 33.3% and a free throw percentage of 64.6%. His performance was comprehensive and stable. Wiggins’ total positive and negative value in the playoffs is as high as +140, which is superior to all playoff players, even higher than Curry, ranking first in the league!
After learning that Poole renewed the Golden State Warriors for $140 million in four years, many experts and fans thought Wiggins would leave, but Wiggins chose to reduce his salary by nearly $10 million a year and renew the Golden State Warriors. We have to sigh, Wiggins is sure to be true love to Golden State Warriors, but Golden State Warriors are like many media descriptions to Wiggins, like breaking a bone and getting a big bargain!
In the past season, Poole and Wiggins both played the most time in Golden State Warriors, Wiggins played 2,329 minutes, Poole played 2,283 minutes, which shows their importance to Golden State Warriors. Golden State Warriors stayed with $249 million. Wiggins, 27, and Poole, 23, when Curry, Clay, and Dream Chasing are all getting old, the successors of Golden State Warriors, have quietly taken their place.
The Golden State Warriors dropped $249 million and renewed Poole and Wiggins at the same time. We also have to admire the courage of Lakob, the owner of Golden State Warriors. Because, according to the analysis of salary expert Bobby Marks, if Dream Pursuit chooses to implement the option of 27.6 million players in 23-24 season, the total salary of 12 players in Golden State Warriors in 23-24 season will reach 215 million, and the luxury tax will reach 268 million, totaling 483 million. Once there are 14 full players, the total salary and luxury tax will probably exceed 500 million dollars.
Marcus Thompson II, the team reporter of Golden State, published the salary details of Golden State Warriors in the 23-24 season, which confirmed the above statement: Curry 51.9 million, Clay 43.2 million, Poole 28 million (estimated), dream-chasing: 27.6 million (if the player option is implemented), Wiggins 24.3 million, Wiseman 12.1 million, Rooney 7.5 million and Kuminga 60.
If the 14-member roster is completed, the luxury tax that Golden State Warriors will have to pay in 2023-2024 will exceed $275 million, which is higher than the combined salaries of Knicks and Grizzlies this year. As we all know, Lakob, the owner of Golden State Warriors, only spent 450 million dollars when he acquired Golden State Warriors in 2010. The total salary next year will exceed the total value of the team that year. Lakob is really rich and willful!
After renewing Poole and Wiggins at the same time, the salary space of Golden State Warriors can be said to be an unprecedented explosion! What about the next dream catcher Green who is facing a contract renewal? Referring to the first year after the renewal of the contract, the annual salary of Brother Wilkins will be reduced to 24.3 million USD. Dreamcatcher Green must reduce his salary if he wants to stay in Golden State for a long time!
