The Warriors have agreed to a three-year, $48 million contract with free agent Andre Iguodala to bring him back to Golden State. Iguodala was a finalist for Sixth Man of the Year this past season, and a critical component of the team's two championships. Kevin Durant is reportedly taking less than the max -- around $31.8 million. When the roster is finalized, if the Warriors can fill out their roster with veteran minimum contracts, their payroll will be at $137.5 million with a Luxury Tax of $40.2 million.

Dynasty continues no matter the cost

Warriors ownership was concerned about facing the luxury tax, according to Drew Shiller of CSN Sports Bay Area.

However, in the end, the ownership saw a dynasty that has the potential to look like the Chicago Bulls in the 90's when they won six championships.

This corps will be intact for years to come. Steph Curry just signed a five-year deal worth $200 million, key reserve Shaun Livingston signed a three-year, $24 million deal yesterday, and Draymond Green is set to make around $16-$18 million each year for the next three years. Klay Thompson is not a free agent until the summer of 2019.

Putting pressure on other teams

The luxury tax is stifling, but it is forcing other teams to form their own super teams. Look at the Rockets for example. Houston sent half of their team to the Clippers to bring in Chris Paul to play with James Harden.

They are reportedly interested in making a trade for Carmelo Anthony which would put their future in serious jeopardy with such a gamble to win now given that Paul and Anthony are both over the age of 32.

The Thunder are taking a gamble on a rental in Paul George to play with Russell Westbrook, while other teams are waiting to hear back from free agents in Gordon Hayward, Kyle Lowry, and Paul Millsap.

The Warriors will be the team to beat in the league for at least the next two years. It could depend on how and which player's contract is restructured when Thompson becomes a free agent, but that won't be a problem for at least two years.

Young receives interest from Golden State

Nick Young, known as "Swaggy P," received interested from the Warriors on Friday night.

Young has spent the last four years with the Lakers. Young averaged 13.2 points, while shooting 43-percent from three point range. Young is 32 years old and wants to play for a playoff contender, but also wants to maximize his value. It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds.
