“I don’t think it will happen, and so for me, I’m just focused on this season and being as great as I can be and as I know I’m capable of being and winning another championship and reaching my individual goals that I have as well," said Green on Sunday.

Bob Myers On Extending Draymond Green, Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins: 'We Want All Those Guys'

Sep 22, 2022 10:38 PM

Bob Myers expressed his desire of extending the contracts of Draymond Green, Jordan Poole, and Andrew Wiggins, though was realistic about the team's salary cap situation.

"We want all of those guys. Can we get all of them? I don't know. It depends on what the money ends up being. What the ask is what we can end up doing. We're not at a point to make those decisions yet.

"Some of these decisions may be made in the next two weeks, some might be made in the next seven, eight months," said Myers on Thursday.

Poole can sign a rookie extension until October 17, with Wiggins set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. Green has a player option for the 2023-24 season.

Myers said that he will meet with Poole's representatives once the team gets back from Japan. He also added that he met with Green and Wiggins' representatives but nothing came from those conversations. 

The Warriors paid around $346 million in salary and luxury taxes last season, becoming the most expensive team in NBA history.

Warriors Expect Andre Iguodala To Play One More Season

Sep 18, 2022 1:24 PM

The Golden State Warriors expect Andre Iguodala to return for one more season in 2022-23. Iguodala intends to announce his decision on his podcast with Evan Turner in the next week or so.

Iguodala played 19.4 minutes per game over 31 regular season games last season. The veteran forward averaged 4.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his 18th season.

Steph Curry On Potentially Reuniting With Kevin Durant: 'Hell, Yeah'

Sep 12, 2022 1:27 AM

Steph Curry admitted his excitement when he heard rumors of the Golden State Warriors potentially trading for Kevin Durant, telling Rolling Stone that his former teammate was "misunderstood."

“I was never hesitant. The idea of playing with KD and knowing who he is as a person, from our history in those three years, I think KD’s a really good dude. I think he is misunderstood.

"I think he has had certain things happen in his life that hurt his ability to trust people around him, in a sense of making him feel safe at all times. So all of those things, I understand, having played with him and gotten to know him. I love that dude," Curry told Matt Sullivan.

Curry said that he ran through the lineup possibilities with Durant before adding that he has complete confident in his current teammates to repeat as NBA champions.

“And if you said, ‘Oh, KD’s coming back, and we’re gonna play with him,’ I had so much fun playing with him those three years, I’d be like, ‘Hell, yeah!’ Then you have to think: What does that actually mean? What does it look like? You tell me I’m playing with [current Warriors teammates Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, and Draymond Green], I’m like, ‘Hell, yeah!’...but you also understand, like, if we run this thing back, I’ve got complete confidence in my team that we can win it again, as constructed," said Curry.

There were reports in early July that the Warriors had interest in trading for Durant. 

The Nets and Durant then announced in late August that the forward would not be traded, ending any trade speculation.

Iguodala appeared in 31 games last season in his return to the Warriors.
