Jordan Poole Secures Bag From Warriors With Massive Extension

Jordan Poole and the Golden State Warriors are reportedly set to agree to a four-year, $140 million extension, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Warriors secure their budding young star to this massive deal, making him the fourth highest-paid player in the 2019 draft class behind Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, and Darius Garland.

The 23-year-old had a breakout campaign for Golden State last season, where he tallied career averages of 18.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 4.0 assists. 

He started in 51 games with Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry sitting out several contests throughout the season. In those 51 starts, Poole averaged 20.8 points while shooting 43.8 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from beyond the arc.

In the playoffs, he averaged 17.0 points while shooting 50.8 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from three.

The Warriors were in a dark spot over the past week with the Draymond Green and Jordan Poole situation. But Green has since apologized to Poole and the two seem to have rehashed their differences. 

Green has returned to the Warriors since the incident and started in Golden State's final regular season game versus the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.

This monstrous Poole payday raises questions on how the Warriors will tackle their other upcoming contract situations with Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins up for their respective extensions.
