“Warriors Make NBA History: Steve Kerr Signs Record-Breaking Contract Extension”

The Golden State Warriors have awarded head coach Steve Kerr a two-year contract extension worth $35 million, elevating him to the position of the highest-paid coach in NBA history.

Kerr became part of the Warriors organization in 2014, during which they have competed in six NBA Finals and secured four championship titles.

Under Kerr’s leadership, the Warriors achieved a remarkable 73 wins in the 2015-16 regular season, setting a new NBA record. However, in the 2016 Finals, despite this achievement, the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by LeBron James, made history by overcoming a 3-1 series deficit to claim victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Kerr’s previous contract was set to conclude by the end of this season, but his new extension, valued at $17.5 million per season, now extends his tenure through the 2025-26 season. This aligns with the remaining two years on Stephen Curry’s contract.

Following the Warriors’ recent victory over the Charlotte Hornets on February 23rd, Draymond Green expressed his admiration for Kerr’s new deal, stating, “I think it’s incredible. Wouldn’t want to finish my time here with any other coach. What he’s meant to this franchise … the winning ways that he brought here, you can’t replace that. … He got what he deserved.”

The indication is strong that Green, Curry, and Klay Thompson will likely spend their entire careers with the Warriors under Kerr’s coaching. Green also conveyed his confidence in Golden State owner Joe Lacob’s decision-making, stating that he never doubted Kerr would receive a new deal.

Green further emphasized his trust in Golden State owner Joe Lacob, stating, “No because I know Joe is going to do the right thing. He’s done nothing but build that trust with us that he’s going to do the right thing and take care of those who take care of this organization.”

Currently, the Warriors hold a 29-26 record for this season, placing them in 10th position in the Western Conference standings. If the season were to conclude now, Kerr’s team would participate in the play-in tournament.
