Golden State Warriors managing owner Joe Lacob is four wins away from fitting a fourth championship ring in the last five years, yet the looming state of the free agency period is one that could shape the scope of a dynasty in the making. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are slated to be unrestricted free agents at the end of the season, but the owner is bullish on doing whatever it takes to keep both players.

“The season is still ongoing,” Lacob told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic. “We are not finished. I have no new ideas or data for you. We love Klay and KD and intend to attempt to re-sign them. Period. I am confident about BOTH of them.

“But it is their choice to do what is best for them. They have earned that right. Our goal is to keep our team together. We are pretty good.”

The Warriors would have to eat a massive luxury tax by signing both Durant and Thompson to long-term extensions, especially considering that neither player is expected to leave any money on the table.

Yet Golden State is in perhaps the best position to do so, regardless of the consequences, due to the brand new state-of-the-art facility they will open up next season in the Chase Center, which is believed to bring plenty of revenue on its first season.

Between their new arena, the high-ranking merchandise sale, the partnership with Rakuten, and their overall success — the Warriors have enough to splurge on keeping this team together — but it will all hinge on what Durant decides to do with his career, as the dominoes will then fall accordingly.
