SF: Andrew Wiggins
Wiggins, Draymond Green, and rookie Podziemski are under contract through 2027. Those are the three longest contracts on the Dubs books. Wiggins will be 33 years old or the same age as Draymond and Klay Thompson are right now in five years.
The 6’7 wing became an All-Star and completely changed the perception of his play after joining the Warriors. He was an outstanding defender during their 2022 title run and his efficiency has improved. Wiggins may be scoring less than his Minnesota days, but he is doing it by shooting 47-plus percent from the field and 39 percent on his 3-point tries.
Andrew Wiggins is just starting a four-year extension and the franchise will likely work out a new deal with the 6’7 wing in a few years. The salary cap is expected to climb significantly, so do not be surprised to see Wiggs get a raise. He will likely be the team’s third-best player in 2028 and play a key role in their success.
Keeping Andrew Wiggins and convincing Darius Garland to come to the Bay Area means the Golden State Warriors must stay in contention. They will need a superstar for that, and there could be plenty of unhappy ones with their current situation over the next five years. Can the Dubs land arguably the best player in the world right now?
