How Steve Nash got a better deal with his coach
Coach Steve Nash’s relationship with his former team is far from perfect.
Nash’s deal with the Golden State Warriors is set to expire after this season, and he’s been a frequent target for criticism by fans.
However, Nash’s deal was worth $21.7 million per year for three seasons, which is less than what his current deal is worth.
Nashes contract has a lot of perks, like $3.5 million per game in incentives.
But he’s also been known to get preferential treatment from coaches.
Here’s how Nash got his new deal, according to the Wall Street Journal:NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced Thursday that Nash will be guaranteed $1.3 million per NBA season and $1 million per team in salary for next season.
The deal is effective immediately, with the player being eligible to play in the league for three more seasons, Silver said.
The deal is a win for Nash and his former Warriors team, as it will help him stay in the game long-term.
The Warriors’ chances of winning the championship will improve with Nash on board, and the franchise’s chances of retaining the title as well.
