Update: Poole and the Warriors have now agreed on the deal, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Golden State Warriors and Jordan Poole are nearing a four-year, $140 million extension to keep him in the Bay Area, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Poole’s contract situation was something to monitor heading into this season and even potentially sparked the altercation with Draymond Green. The Warriors have decided they’re not going to let this linger into the season.

Poole rose to fame last season, averaging 18.5 points in a bench role last season. He got more playing time with Klay Thompson sidelined early in the season and eventually became a key piece of Golden State’s championship run. Even though he saw a diminished role in the playoffs, Poole showcased his growth in Golden State’s system and potential for stardom.

The Warriors have shown they’re willing to pay the luxury tax to keep a contender together, so this is not a huge extension for them in terms of budget. Ultimately, they will have to make some concessions around the edges once Poole’s cap number skyrockets but for now they’re ready to go.
