Just to get it all down in one place, here are the salary situations for the key Warriors players headed into this summer, and some thoughts about how coach Mark Jackson's fate may or may not affect these futures...

(Figures from shamsports.com.)

Important point, especially for Stephen Curry: There are no opt-out provisions in any of these deals, to the best of my knowledge.

Another point: The Warriors don't have a first-round pick this season (owed to Utah in the Andre Iguodala whirlwind last summer), so they won't have to make room for that new contract unless they make a deal to acquire a pick.

The Warriors' financial outlook:

  • Stephen Curry, 26 years old: Signed for three more seasons, through 2016-17. Eligible to sign another extension in the summer of 2016, when he'll be 28.

    ($10.629M next season, $11.37M in 2015-16, $12.11M in 2016-17.)

    Comment: Curry is obviously the team's best and by far most important player into the future and his unflinching 100% support of Mark Jackson will and certainly should be influential within Warriors HQ.

    If he is upset with management for a prolonged period, that will have loads of psychic repercussions.

    But practically, Curry has three years left on the deal he signed in November 2012 and the next landmark he'd have is the decision whether to extend it again (which he has previously said he'd love to do) two years from now, with one year left on the deal.

    That's plenty of time for a new coach and new offensive system to impress Curry. Of course, Joe Lacob & Co. could keep Jackson and extend him, too, which would make Curry very happy and, if things continue to go well, would all but guarantee Curry looking to extend his stay well beyond 2017 (but for a salary MUCH higher than his current discount $11M per).

  • Andrew Bogut, 29: Signed for three more seasons, through 2016-17.

    ($12.97M next season, $12M in 2015-16, $11.02M in 2016-17.)

    Comment: It looked like Bogut's holdover bonus for making the 1st or 2nd All-Defensive team might push the Warriors over the luxury-tax line, but his injury at the end of the season and the surge of Joakim Noah (voted Defensive Player of the Year) probably nixed that possibility. I'd figure Roy Hibbert gets 2nd team.

    I don't see much Jackson tie-in for Bogut, whose three-year, $36M extension kicks in now. If Jackson stays, Bogut will remain a key defensive piece. If Jackson goes, Bogut probably won't be leading the protest. And any new coach would be happy just to plug him in to defend the rim.

    With Bogut, it's not about the coach, it's always about staying healthy.

  • Andre Iguodala, 30: Signed for three more seasons, through 2016-17.

    ($12.29M next season, $11.71M in 2015-16, $11.31M in 2016-17.)

    Comment: A big Jackson proponent, but Iguodala was at the peak of his marketability last summer, when he landed with the Warriors.

    He had a good season -- a GREAT defensive season -- with the Warriors, but it's not like Iguodala, signed through his 33rd birthday, is going to sway any management opinions. Another plug-in player, whoever the coach is.

  • David Lee, 31: Signed for two more seasons, through 2015-16.

    ($15.01M next season, $15.49M in 2015-16.)

    Comment: A solid Jackson proponent, and when he stands with Curry, ownership definitely listens (but it's mostly to Curry these days).

    Can the Warriors deal Lee for a younger, most versatile power forward? They tried last summer and I'm sure they'll explore it again, though again, with his remaining $30.5M, I'm not sure if they can get value back. And under Lacob, the Warriors want value (and not just bad money) in return for a favored player.

    Interestingly, the Warriors have won and lost playoff games with Lee OR Bogut in the lineup, and haven't had them both in there for any whole playoff game due to injuries.

  • Marreese Speights, 26: Signed for two more seasons (the last season is a player option).

    ($3.66M next season, $3.81M player option for 2015-16.)

    Comment: Wild Game 7 production, which is irrelevant to his future situation. He is owed almost $7.5M over the next two seasons. Even if he wanted to go, I'm not sure who'd take him at that price.

  • Harrison Barnes, 21: Could hit restricted free agency in two years.

    ($3.05M next season, team option for $3.87M in 2015-16, qualifying offer after that.)

    Comment: Barnes' bedeviling sophomore season wasn't a great resume-builder for Jackson's coaching staff. The Warriors got calls on Barnes at the trade deadline but declined to pursue deals, betting on his upside and versatility.

    It'll be interesting to see what plan Jackson might have for Barnes or, obviously, what a new coach might think about Barnes' best fit. Or if management packages Barnes with Lee or somebody else to try to change up the roster.

  • Klay Thompson, 24: Could hit restricted free agency after next season. Eligible for an extension this summer.

    ($3.08M next season, qualifying offer after that.)

    Comment: Would be one of the first key Warriors players most immediately affected by any move to replace Jackson, because Thompson will be negotiating for his first extension this summer. If the Warriors replace Jackson this off-season, Thompson could up his price or possibly decline to extend the deal.

    If there's no deal with Thompson before the start of next season, the valuable 2-guard would hit restricted free-agency in 2015, and would become the first major Jackson proponent to test the market.

  • Draymond Green, 24: Could hit restricted free agency after next season.

    (Non-guaranteed $915k salary for next season.)

    Comment: Another big potential Jackson/no-Jackson flash point because Green is unquestionably aligned with Jackson and has huge bargaining power after the two seasons he has just turned in.

    For every complaint about Barnes' back-sliding, Jackson and his staff can rightly point to all they've done with Green to turn him into one of the NBA's most fascinating -- and productive -- young forwards.

  • Steve Blake, 34: Unrestricted free agent.

    (Made $4M this season.)

    Comment: Blake's two virtual DNPs in the last two games of the first round showed that Jackson had lost some faith in the veteran PG, acquired in February.

    If Jackson returns, I would doubt Blake does. If Jackson doesn't return, Blake is still a free agent and the Warriors don't have a ton of cap flexibility.

  • Jordan Crawford, 25: Restricted free agent.

    ($3.2M qualifying offer for next season.)

    Comment: The converse of Blake's situation -- Jackson gave Crawford incredibly important minutes in both Games 6 and 7, and Crawford delivered 20 combined points in the games.

  • Jermaine O'Neal, 35: Unrestricted free agent.

    (Made $2M this season.)

    Comment: His Warriors fate is probably the most closely tied to Jackson's -- if Jackson is back, O'Neal would probably look to return. If Jackson leaves, I think there would be little chance O'Neal returns. He also could retire.
