The Golden State Warriors, who have a championship-winning trio in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, are short on cash this summer.

Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins, in addition to Thompson and Green, will be signed to new contracts in the near future.

We have to pay a ludicrous luxury tax on all four of them just to keep them employed. Green will be able to sign a new contract as early as August 3rd.

Green, according to sources who spoke with The Athletic's Anthony Slater and Marcus Thompson II, believes he deserves a five-year deal worth $164.2 million.

That's a lot of money for Green, who hasn't played well this season and hasn't scored more than eight points per game on average.

As of right now, there is no movement toward extending Green's contract beyond the current one-year deal he has with the Warriors.

As far as I know, the Warriors haven't offered a contract to Green this offseason because they don't think he's worth what they're paying him.

According to Slater and Thompson II, the Warriors usually sign a maximum extension after a player has one year left on his current contract.

There are technically two years left on the four-year extension Green signed before the 2019 season, but he can opt out of that deal this season.

In addition, if the Warriors trade Green, he'll get a 15 percent trade bonus.

In contrast to the rest of the league, Green and the Warriors are focusing on defending their title rather than the Kevin Durant sweepstakes.
