By exercising the fourth-year contract options of youthful phenoms Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody, the Golden State Warriors have taken a major step towards securing their future.
After being selected seventh overall by the Warriors in the 2021 NBA Draught, 21-year-old Jonathan Kuminga has made quite an impression.
Kuminga, who has played in three games this season and is averaging 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.00 steals, and 21.6 minutes per game.
Similarly, 21-year-old Moses Moody hasn't been too far behind. Moody, who was picked 14th overall in the same draught, has shown a lot of potential, particularly with regard to his ability to help out on both ends of the court.
Moody has played in 119 games thus far, including 15 starts, averaging 4.8 points and 1.7 rebounds per game while averaging 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.50 steals per game in 19.4 minutes per game this season.
Notably, in more than half of his starts, Moody has scored in double figures.Since the current NBA CBA only guarantees the first two years of a first-round draught pick's contract .
The third and fourth years as club options, the Warriors' choice to extend the contracts of these talented young players is in line with the CBA.
