After winning the 2022 championship against all odds many believe that the warriors have positioned themselves for another half-decade of finals contention, but what if I told you the Dubs have a big problem that could separate their new core before it even peaks?
If you didn’t know the warriors have a ton of players such as Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green who will be due for new contracts next offseason. At one point or another, all of these players played a very significant role in allowing the warriors to win at the highest level. Still, the problem is all of these players want large contracts that the warriors can’t afford.
Over the past decade, warrior's owners have gone deep into the Luxury tax to ensure the team has a solid chance at winning, but recently one of the warrior's owners Joseph Lacob stated that keeping their core together on max contracts is simply not possible. Owners simply cannot afford the massive bill that would be created by giving all their players hefty contracts.
With that being said the warrior's executives have a very big decision to make. Do they keep the young players in Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, or do they give veteran players such as Draymond Green the money they want, even though it will likely make them negative assets in the future? It's safe to say that the warriors have to choose their path within the next year, and no matter what decision they make their current core of players will be dismantled one way or another.
