How are the Warriors going to keep KD and Klay, and also hold onto to as many pieces as possible.
Simple, they’re going to spend!
According to Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the Warriors are planning on giving KD five years at $221 million, while maxing out Klay Thompson at five years, $190 million.
They would also try to bring back Kevon Looney which means their payroll would be over $375 million next season. This would include $200 million in luxury taxes and the figure makes the Warriors the most expensive NBA team ever.
Keeping their championship core together for the next 5 years would cost the Warriors almost as much as it cost to build the new Chase Center. But it’s the Chase Center— which will generate $200 million a year more in revenue— that allows the Warriors to pay that much. https://t.co/dfwWvzvtcm

It should be a very interesting weekend in the NBA.
