With Wiggins on an expiring contract, Poole’s rookie deal nearing its end, and Draymond heading towards a player option decision, I asked Bob Myers if this is the most difficult situation he’s been in as a GM. pic.twitter.com/yjK0l0cinf6:43 PM

More on this storyline

All three can hit free agency after this coming season; if there’s no extension, Wiggins would become an unrestricted free agent in July, Poole would be a restricted free agent and Draymond has a player option for 2023-24 that he could decline, which would allow him to hit unrestricted free agency himself next July. Poole is the only one with a pressing deadline; due to rookie-extension rules, if there’s no extension signed by Oct. 17, he will get to restricted free agency in July. -via The Athletic / September 17, 2022
“I think with both those guys and Draymond, the goal, we want all three as long as we can have them,” Myers said. “We’ve had conversations with all three players, their representatives. I’m not going to get into the likelihood or not of any of them getting done. But we know how important they are. … I don’t know that we win a championship last year if you take any of them away. Draymond, his pedigree here, he’ll go down as one of the best Warriors ever to put on a uniform. -via The Athletic / September 17, 2022
Speaking with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, Myers shared why Iguodala is a “great presence” for them. The Golden State exec highlighted how “he is one of the few people in the world that can look [Stephen] Curry or Draymond [Green] or Klay [Thompson] in the eye and meet them at their level, but also grab a Jordan Poole or Kuminga or Wiseman and speak to them, encourage them.” As Myers noted, “there’s no one else in the league who can do that for our team,” per Heavy.com. -via Clutch Points / September 17, 2022
