NBA: Zaza Pachulia pens Warriors extension


Share this story

Zaza Pachulia has committed his future to Golden State Warriors by signing a new one-year contract.

The Georgian is understood to have put pen to paper on $3.5million deal for the 2017-18 season and he becomes the latest Warriors player to sign a contract extension, following in the footsteps of Kevin Durant and two-time MVP Steph Curry.

The 33-year-old played a key role as Golden State secured the NBA Championship last season, as he featured in 70 regular season matches, as well as 15 playoff games.

Pachulia’s performances were made even more impressive as he was booed by supporters at the Oracle Arena when he first joined the team from Dallas Mavericks last summer, but he quickly went on to establish himself as an integral member of Steve Kerr’s side.

The former Milwaukee Bucks ace, who claimed his first NBA Championship ring last season, will now be hoping to enjoy more success with the Warriors next term.

As well as tying down their key players to new contracts, Golden State have also added to their roster, most notably with the acquisition of free agent Nick Young, who left the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of last season.

The 2017-18 NBA campaign is scheduled to get underway on October 20, with Golden State aiming to win their third championship title in just four seasons.
