The 29-year-old will make $18.5 million this season, which is the final year of his current contract with Golden State. He will stick around to keep the Warriors as NBA Title contenders with Thompson and Steph Curry, as well as potentially D'Angelo Russell. There has been speculation that Russell could be used as a trade piece in the future to get another star to join them in their new arena, but he is under contract for the next four years.
Green was the 35th overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft, and has since played a major role in the Warriors' five straight NBA Finals appearances, including three titles. He has been on the All-Defensive first or second team in five straight seasons, while winning the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2017. He is now the third player that the Warriors have given major contracts to this summer, joining Russell and Thompson.
The three-time All-Star has also stepped up big come playoff time, averaging 12.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game in 123 career playoff contests. Those numbers peaked in 22 playoff games last season, where he recorded 13.3 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game for the short-handed Warriors. For his career, he has averaged 7.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists, keeping him as a constant triple-double threat, while also bringing a passionate attitude to the floor. The combination of skill and toughness that Green brings to the game will keep the Warriors relevant in the tough Western Conference.
