Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers said in July that he is confident the franchise will be able to afford a roster and luxury tax bill that hits $300 million in the 2019-20 season.
Kevin Durant re-signed with the Warriors this summer on a one-plus-one deal, meaning he can become a free-agent again next offseason. Klay Thompson will be a free-agent in 2019 as well, while Draymond Green will enter the open market in 2020.
Stephen Curry signed a supermax extension with the Warriors in 2017 and is under contract until 2022. Swingman Andre Iguodala, who will become a free-agent in 2020, says the two-time MVP has basically been the GM for the Warriors, so he wants to make sure he’s on Curry’s good side when his contract is up.
The Warriors will open their new arena in San Francisco in 2019, which will surely bring in more revenue to the organization. Iguodala will turn 36 before his next free agency.
Even though Green recruited Durant to the Warriors in the summer of 2016, Curry played a major role in getting Iguodala to Golden State back in 2013. Curry has staying power with the Warriors, so the organization is clearly going to do whatever makes Curry happy.
