Warriors general manager Bob Myers told Bay Area News Group last week that he still wants to retain McCaw despite spending his second year dealing with a back injury and inconsistency. The Warriors do not plan to add another player to their 14-man roster so they can maintain financial flexibility. Though they signed training camp invitee Alfonzo McKinnie to a two-year deal, his contract does not become guaranteed until Jan. 10. The Warriors also own McCaw’s rights and have three days to match any offer sheet he receives. “I’d love to see him come back,” Lacob said of McCaw. “But if he doesn’t, we move on.”

By earning MVP honors, Jokic has qualified for a supermax extension, which would be the largest in NBA history. However, because Jokic has only six years of service, the center will need to wait until the 2022 offseason to sign the five-year $241 million extension. The rules of the supermax stipulate that only players with seven or eight years of service are eligible to sign the extension. Here is a breakdown of what the max extension projects to be based on a $121.5 million salary cap. 2023-24: $42.6M 2024-25: $44.9M 2025-26: $48.2M 2026-27: $51.5M 2027-28: $54.8M
Barton has until July 17 to exercise his player option for 2021-22, and it would be hard for him to justify turning it down to become a free agent. Despite coming off a season in which he shot a career-high 38.1% from 3 and averaged double-digit points for a sixth straight year, Barton has been bit by the injury bug the past three seasons. In total, Barton has missed 91 games (hip, knee and hamstring) and played only three of Denver’s 29 postseason games over the past two years.
