According to ESPN, guard Jordan Poole and the Golden State Warriors have reached a multiyear agreement. The four-year contract is reportedly worth up to $140 million. With the Warriors for his fourth season, Poole has watched his stats get better each time. The shooting guard from Michigan averaged 8.5 points on 33% shooting as a rookie, 12.0 points on 43% shooting in 2020–21, and then upped his average once more to 18.5 points on 45% shooting in the previous season when he assisted the Warriors in winning the NBA championship.
In addition, Poole made 211 3-pointers last season, which ranked 15th in the NBA and was second on the Warriors behind all-time 3-point shooting champion Stephen Curry. The extension will become effective in 2023–2024. This season, Poole will earn roughly $4 million.
Rising star Poole, who averaged 17 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.8 assists throughout the playoffs the previous season, was essential to Golden State’s march to the 2022 championship. Last season, he finished fourth in the NBA’s Most Improved Player voting.
