Jordan Poole’s future with Warriors Described as “Murkier”

The Warriors seem okay with making significant investments once more in 2019.

Golden State does not expect to try to offload money this offseason in order to avoid paying luxury tax, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

However, there is speculation in the NBA as to whether the Warriors will actually wish to keep guard Jordan Poole or part ways. Poole had a dismal playoff performance last year after having a successful postseason run.

Poole will receive $27.4 million in 2023–2024 as part of a four-year, $123 million extension that begins today. According to Slater, if the Warriors manage to keep free agent forward Draymond Green, their total cost will exceed $400 million.

Poole is now “a bigger ticket piece whose future has become murkier,” according to Slater’s writing.

The Warriors appear to be concentrating on finding a new general manager/president to succeed Bob Myers, who resigned after more than ten years and four championships.

They will then need to make some significant decisions, most of which will include Poole but some of which will involve Green.

“If the Warriors want to keep Green and still suppress that overall bill back below $400 million, they need to shed a larger salary,” Slater wrote.
