Jordan Poole reunites with Stephen Curry, Warriors

Jordan Poole reunited with his former teammates upon returning to the Chase Center for the first time since being traded last off-season. Poole, drafted in 2019 with a basic 4-year rookie contract estimated to be worth around $10 million, had an outstanding season in 2021-22.

The Dubs decided to extend his contract for a hefty $128 million before his ongoing contract expired. However, things didn’t go right as Draymond Green and Poole got into a fight with Green punching the former Warriors star in the face. After a few months following the incident, Poole was traded.

Poole enjoyed reconnecting with the players he had shared the court with just a few months ago. Having formed strong bonds during his time with the Warriors, witnessing him reunite with them was heartwarming.

The highlight of the day was Poole meeting Curry, reminiscent of their roles as the unstoppable duo that contributed to the Warriors’ championship success. Poole was anticipated to step into the shoes of Curry as a key figure for the Dubs, but, unfortunately, things didn’t unfold as fans had hoped.

Warriors’ ace Steph Curry was like a mentor to Poole and both of them if allowed to get into rhythm would tear apart the defenses of the opposing time. Curry and Poole did a handshake and hugged demonstrating the good relationship both the stars have with each other.

What do you think of Jordan Poole’s return to the Chase Center? Do you think that Poole will ever come back to the Warriors? We are eager to know your thoughts, so drop them down in the comments and let us know.
