Stand up, Dubs Nation!
After Kevin Durant's departure, the Golden State Warriors ensured they wouldn't lose any other pivotal member of their core, subsequently locking up Klay Thompson to a max deal.
Fast forward roughly a month later, and Draymond Green has reportedly received his dues with his own free agency set to arrive next summer. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the three-time All-Star has agreed to a four-year, $100 million max extension to remain in the Bay Area.
The lucrative deal brings the total value of Dray's contract to $118 million over five years.
Nobody within the NBA's landscape truly expected Green to ever leave the Warriors. His elite playmaking and stalwart defense fits right into Steve Kerr's formula.
The Michigan State product was actually pretty poor during the regular reason, but he absolutely showed out once the playoffs came around -- averaging 13.3 points, 10.1 rebounds, 8.5 assists, and 1.5 steals while shooting just under 50% from the floor.
Here's the complete breakdown of Green's earning over the next four seasons, courtesy of the basketball whisperer.
Draymond has simply been one of the imperative components of the Dubs' run to five straight Finals. Signing him to a max extension was a no-brainer for general manager Bob Myers.
