The Warriors have a ton of issues that need to be resolved over the offseason, and the team will consider a variety of roster restructuring options, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
According to reports, Steph Curry wants to keep most of the same team together at least for the upcoming season and possibly beyond.
Curry wants that, according to a recent article by Tim Kawakami of The Athletic. His viewpoint is somewhat important.
Of course it does.
It is now being reported that despite Curry’s apparent wishes, he looks to be the only certain player to retain his spot in the offseason, Slater explains.
“Poole’s pay increases the next season from $3.9 million to $27.4 million. The situation’s urgency is increased by this. The Warriors must cut a greater payroll if they want to keep Green and maintain their overall spending below $400 million, according to Slater.
However, it isn’t until the next season, when [Klay] Thompson’s $43 million leaves the books, that the new, more onerous CBA penalties above the second tax apron take effect. The Warriors now have more time and options as they decide how to stay competitive without limiting their future. [Joe] The departure of [Bob] Myers only seems to have fueled Lacob’s desire to triumph more. According to reliable sources, a salary dump trade is not in the works.
That does not imply that Jordan Poole is secure. That does not imply that anyone else is secure besides Curry. This summer, the Warriors plan to investigate a range of options for both minor and major roster reorganizations.
If the return package appeals, it might imply that Poole is involved in a deal. However, Poole is not now the subject of any active searches, his salary has not been reduced, and his side has not yet received any hint that Poole’s future lies elsewhere.
Bob Myers, the franchise’s cherished general manager, was the first domino to fall, and he was already gone. And his departure heralds the start of a potential new era for the group.
This summer, it appears that Golden State will need to have some difficult conversations, and the seasoned core of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green may no longer exist as we currently know it.
