Jordan Poole Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: January 6, 2023
After a breakout 2022-23 season, the hot-shooting guard earned an impressive rookie extension — Boardroom looks at the details of the Warriors’ Jordan Poole contract.

Jordan Poole has had a lot going on these last few months. The Golden State Warriors guard had a breakout 2022 season while perennial All-Star guard Klay Thompson continued to recover from injuries. He posted career highs in points per game (18.5), assists (4.0), three-point percentage (36.4), and led the NBA in free throw percentage (92.5) as the Warriors won their fourth championship since 2015.

Going into the season, the Warriors have every reason to believe they could repeat. But as Golden State prepared for opening night, drama temporarily derailed them when Poole and veteran teammate Draymond Green got into an altercation. Green ended up punching Poole, and after the incident was captured on since-leaked video, Green took time away from the team.

As Golden State attempts to move on and rebuild the broken trust, the shooting guard and the team finalized a rookie contract extension. The deal is for four years, valued at $140 million, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski.

Boardroom looks at the estimated numbers behind the Warriors’ new and impressive Jordan Poole contract.

Golden State has proven that it will not let the salary cap and luxury tax stop them from keeping superstars in town. The team is currently over the cap by $78 million, which will result in a luxury tax penalty of almost $40 million. Poole got his lucrative extension and looks to be a part of the Warriors’ present and future. Like the other mega rookie extensions that have been signed in recent months, Poole’s deal comes with a poison pill clause that lasts until July 1 of next year.
