According to league sources, the Warriors have selected the 2024–25 season’s fourth-year options for forward Jonathan Kuminga and wing Moses Moody, as reported by Michael Scotto of HoopsHype (link). The news that Moody’s option had been exercised was initially broken (via X) by Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report and TNT.
In his first two NBA seasons, Kuminga, the No. 7 overall pick in 2021, got regular minutes for the Warriors. Despite missing Monday’s game due to a knee strain, he has had a strong start to 2023–24, averaging 11.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 21.7 minutes per night through three games off the bench.
Kuminga’s $7,636,307 fourth-year option in 2024–2025 is now certain. With today’s decision, he will also be on pace to be eligible for restricted free agency in 2025 if he doesn’t sign a new contract the following year and for a rookie scale extension during the 2024 offseason.
Since Golden State selected Moody with the 14th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, he has received less regular playing time than Kuminga. However, he is playing a career-high 19.3 minutes per game so far this season, appearing in four games while averaging 9.8 PPG, 3.0 RPG, and 1.5 SPG.
Similar to Kuminga, Moody is now qualified for a rookie scale extension in July of next year. The option pick-up ensures he will be paid $5,803,269 in 2024–2025.
