2021-22 Golden State Warriors Contracts & Salary Breakdown

How big is the Golden State Warriors’ payroll, and who’s the highest-paid player on the roster? Check out Boardroom’s rundown of every Warriors salary on the books this season.

For the first time since the Toronto Raptors hoisted a Larry O’Brien Trophy that still feels stranger than fiction, the Golden State Warriors are in the NBA Finals. Many of the faces are familiar, of course — the Death Lineup is still very much a thing, but now with former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins constituting a notable addition.

Another thing that hasn’t changed? The Warriors spending well beyond the salary cap and far into the NBA’s luxury tax — though as Boardroom has previously concluded, you can’t be afraid to pay the tax if you want to surround a supermax salary like Stephen Curry’s with multiple max- or near-max players. Naturally, that got us thinking about just where the Dubs have chosen to allocate their salary spending this season to get themselves back to the Finals.

So, what are the biggest Warriors contracts of 2021-22? Who’s the highest-paid player on the Warriors overall? You have salary questions, Boardroom has salary answers.
