With Chase Center set to open, Draymond Green is now locked in, alongside the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and D'Angelo Russell.

Listen to your team news NOW.

On Saturday morning, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported, via Klutch Sports Group bosss Rich Paul, that the Warriors and the Golden State veteran had come to terms on a four-year, $100 max contract extension. Green makes $18.5 million in the year to come, meaning he's under club control for the next five seasons at a price of $118.5 million. The team, sans years or dollar amounts, announced the signing in press release thart evening.

With Green's future now secured, the Warriors, as Green himself predicted in the wake of Finals' loss to the Raptors, have pivoted flawlessly, in the wake of that on-court disappointment and the subsequent departure of Kevin Durant.

Back on June 13, after the Warriors closed out Oracle in disappointing fashion, ceding the title to the Raptors on a night when Klay Thompson tore his ACL, Green sat at the postgame podium, speaking  calmly, yet confidently.

“I think everybody thinks it's kind of the end of us,” Green said. “But that's just not smart.”

“We're not done yet,” Green continued. “We lost this year. Clearly just wasn't our year, but that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes. But, yeah, I hear a lot of that noise, it's the end of a run and all that jazz. I don't see it happening though. We'll be back.”

With Green, Curry, Thompson and Russell all on board, the proclamation is looking wise.
