Warriors Exercise Fourth-Year Options On Kuminga, Moody

The Warriors have picked up their fourth-year options for the 2024/25 season on forward Jonathan Kuminga and wing Moses Moody, league sources tell Michael Scotto of HoopsHype (Twitter link). Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report and TNT first reported (via Twitter) that Moody’s option had been exercised.

Kuminga, the No. 7 overall pick in 2021, saw regular minutes for the Warriors in each of his first two NBA seasons. He’s off to a solid start in 2023/24, averaging 11.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 21.7 minutes per night through three games off the bench, though he missed Monday’s game due to a knee contusion.

Kuminga’s fourth-year option in 2024/25, worth $7,636,307, is now guaranteed. Today’s decision will also put him on track to become eligible for a rookie scale extension during the 2024 offseason and – if he doesn’t sign a new deal next year – for restricted free agency in 2025.

Moody has seen less consistent playing time than Kuminga since being drafted 14th overall in 2021 by Golden State. However, he’s logging a career-high 19.3 minutes per game in the very early going this season, recording 9.8 PPG, 3.0 RPG, and 1.5 SPG in four appearances.

Moody, like Kuminga, will now be eligible for a rookie scale extension next July. Today’s option pick-up guarantees his $5,803,269 salary for 2024/25.
