The Golden State Warriors were already entering an uncertain offseason with the impending free agencies of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.
“It is my understanding in talking to people with the Warriors’ organization that their intention is to continue to offer Kevin Durant a full five-year max contract and to offer Klay a full five-year max contract,” said Brian Windhorst on ESPN’s First Take. “Those two decisions would put their payroll next year including luxury taxes and over $350 million. They’re going to be able to pay for it because they’re going to move across the Bay to a new cash cow arena, which is going to increase their team revenue by enough to pay for it.
“They are not giving up on the core of this team.”
