Western Notes: Poole, Billups, Nuggets, Rockets

Warriors guard Jordan Poole is confident he’ll work out a new contract agreement with the team, Marc J. Spears of ESPN tweets. Poole added he’s looking forward to those negotiations progressing when Golden State returns from Toyko in early October.

Poole may have faith that something can be worked out, but it’s still possible the sides won’t agree to a deal in the coming weeks. Should that happen, Poole would become a restricted free agent in 2023. The sides have until October 17 to reach a rookie scale extension.

Poole played a significant role in the Warriors’ championship campaign last year, averaging 18.5 points on 45% shooting during the regular season. The 23-year-old also averaged 17.0 points per game during the playoffs, shooting 51% from the floor and 39% from three-point range.
