The Golden State Warriors lost Klay Thompson to a torn right Achilles tendon on Wednesday and have been forced to remake their roster without him. On Thursday they agreed to a deal that will bring in Kelly Oubre from the Oklahoma City Thunder. While adding Oubre's skill will help Golden State, the franchise's luxury tax bill will explode as a result.
The Warriors already have a luxury tax bill of $66 million, but adding Oubre would increase that exponentially. He's set to make $14.4 million during the 2020-21 season and due to the way the NBA's tax rules work, the Warriors will wind up owning $134 million in luxury tax as a result.
