The Golden State Warriors and guard Jordan Poole have reportedly agreed to a multiyear extension, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The reported four-year deal is worth up to $140 million.
Poole is entering his fourth season with the Warriors and has seen his numbers improve each season. The shooting guard out of Michigan averaged 8.5 points on 33% shooting as a rookie, then averaged 12.0 points on 43% shooting in 2020-21 and increased his average again to 18.5 points on 45% shooting last season when he helped the Warriors win the NBA title.
The new deal also ends a tumultuous preseason for Poole and the Warriors.
Poole was punched by Warriors teammate Draymond Green during an altercation in practice on Oct. 5. Video of the incident was leaked to TMZ days later. Green took a few days away from the team and ultimately was fined but returned to the club for the preseason finale and shared a pregame handshake with Poole before the last exhibition game on Friday night.
