Dunleavy signed to extension

Mike Dunleavy signed a multiyear contract extension today, terms of the deal were not announced.
Forward Mike Dunleavy signed a multiyear contract extension with the Golden State Warriors on Monday, hours before a deadline to prevent him from becoming a restricted free agent after the season.

Dunleavy, the third overall pick in the 2002 draft, started 79 games for the Warriors last season, averaging a career-best 13.4 points along with 5.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists.

The contract extension, expected to be a five-year deal in the $45 million range, capped weeks of negotiations between the Warriors and Dunleavy's agent, Arn Tellem.

"We view him as an integral part of our future and as a player who will continue to develop and expand his game, much as he has during his first three years in the NBA," said Chris Mullin, the Warriors' head of basketball operations. "Mike is a player who has improved every year that he has been in the league."
It will be interesting to see exactly what the terms of the contract were, but at least the initial reports are that it was slightly below the Tayshaun Prince 5 year, $47 million deal.

Well, Dunleavy got paid. Hopefully he'll live up to the contract, or I'm going to have to stap him with a fork. And no one wants that. 9 mil a year? That seems like a lot, but I guess it's the going rate for pretty good/not great small fowards?
