The Golden State Warriors will need to spend deep into the luxury tax in the coming years to retain their championship core.

Fortunately, the back-to-back champions should have plenty in the bank after making The Finals in each of the last four seasons.

In this year alone, the Warriors took in approximately $130 million across 11 home playoff games, up from $95 million in last year’s playoffs, according to Tim Kawakami of The Athletic.

The Warriors will also be moving into a new arena in downtown San Francisco in 2019, which will give them another boost in revenue. Golden State became the first NBA franchise to collect membership fees, which should roughly rake in another $300 million, according to Kawakami.

Golden State has more than $103 million on its books next season before accounting for a new contract for Kevin Durant, and perhaps an extension for Klay Thompson, on top of filling out its rotation.
