Hiro, who heard of Jordan Poole contract extension, “Milwaukee will be proud of us.”
Hiro said of Jordan Poole extension.
Jordan Poole (193cm, G) made his debut with the Golden State Warriors through the 2019-2020 NBA Rookie Draft. Golden State was the best team in the league, but due to injuries to Clay Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Draymond Green, it ranked 30th, or the bottom, in the league. The pool also received many opportunities due to the absence of key players, but it did not receive much attention with an average of 8.8 points and 2.4 assists in the season and a 33% field pitching success rate.
But the pool in the second year was different. At the beginning of the season, it was similar to his first year, but he actively attacked with confidence from the middle of the season. As a result, he averaged 12 points for the season.
And Pool has been tapped as a clear future for Golden State in the 2021-2022 season. He started in Thomson’s absence at the beginning of the season, and after returning to Thomson, he came off the bench and led the attack. Pool, who had an amazing season, averaged 18.5 points per season. With this performance, he was also nominated for the Skills Development Award.
Pool’s performance continued not only in the regular season but also in the playoffs. He helped the team win by playing as a clear six-man. Pool, who had an amazing season, became a four-year, $140 million extension through this off-season.
Tyler Hiro delivered his thoughts. Hiro appeared on the “Ira Winderman” podcast and said, “I’m very happy that Pool has signed such a big contract.”
Then, “As far as I know, Pul is also from Milwaukee. I’m from Milwaukee, too. We, from Milwaukee, succeeded in a big contract. Milwaukee will be proud of us,” he said, explaining why he was happy with Pool’s contract.
Meanwhile, Hiro also showed a step forward through last season. He won the Six Man of the Year award with an average of 20.7 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists in the season. Hiro, who was recognized for this, signed a four-year, $430 million extension through this off-season. The two players from Milwaukee have been tapped as the future to lead their respective teams in the future.
