Even though they just won The NBA FinalsBob Myers and Golden State Warriors Can’t sleep on their laurels. They need to process their primary contract extension to Keep the band together.

Dubs risk losing several stars due to their tight salary cap. The new CBA proposal adds greater penalties for overtaking the luxury tax, Which complicates this even more.

That’s why Warriors take a “wait and see” approach with some extensions of their contracts. However, Myers recently confirmed that they will be more aggressive To get Jordan Paul lock up in the future.

“I think we’ll meet his representatives after Tokyo, sit down for the first time and start having that conversation,” Myers said. “I think that’s about two weeks behind the deadline for him. Where that’s going, I don’t know. I know they want to meet and I know we want to meet. We’ll see what the next two weeks bring us.”

Paul can force his way out of the Bay Area

However, some believe about the league bowl has already surpassed the Warriors And his role, so that he can try to get out of the team aggressively. This could lead Dubs to overpay just to keep:

“Though, Paul could have some [Harrison] Barnes in it,” An NBA executive told Heavy. “He showed what he could do a little bit when everyone was injured and the team was bad, but he was pushed back into the team once Clay was healthy and everyone was talking about Wiggins and everything. It depends on how they handle this contract. But if he feels they don’t want him, yes, he’s the one I can imagine elsewhere, like Barnes did. Of course, they replaced Barnes with Durant. Maybe they’ll do the same with Paul.”

Some would argue that Paul should start along Stephen Curry, and aging Klay Thompson Off the bench, but this is not likely to happen. So, would Paul agree not to start? remains to be seen.
