Green’s association with Golden State is expected to continue.
According to local reporter Mark Spears, “Draymond Green will hit the market as a free agent with an opt-out. The Golden State Warriors will do whatever it takes to re-sign Green.”
Green signed a four-year, $100 million extension with Golden State in August 2019. The final year is a player option, which allows Green to stay with the team if he wants to or hit free agency. Green is expected to exercise the player option and hit free agency.
Green was a big part of Golden State’s NBA Finals victory last season, and he had another great season. He averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 6.8 assists in the regular season, showing off his versatility and defensive prowess. Green was one of the best defenders this season and a key part of Golden State’s defense.
Green’s play continued in the playoffs. Although he did get into some bad behavior, including an unsportsmanlike foul on Domantas Sabonis in Game 1 against the Sacramento Kings, which earned him a one-game suspension.
Green has played well in the playoffs, averaging 9.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 6.8 assists, and his defense has been key.
Now, Golden State has declared a winnow, sending away prospects and bringing in veterans. The main reason is that ace Steph Curry is nearing the end of his prime.
With Wynn now on waivers, Green is a player that shouldn’t be missed. If Green were to leave, the system Golden State has built would fall apart. Green is the only player who can adapt to the Golden State system, both offensively and defensively.안전놀이터
The problem is the price. The Warriors have huge contracts remaining for Curry and Klay Thompson, as well as extensions for Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole. Right now, Golden State is paying a hefty luxury tax. If Green is also signed to a long-term deal, the Warriors will have to pay an unimaginable luxury tax.
Green has consistently expressed his desire to remain in Golden State. With both Green and Golden State interested in re-signing him, it shouldn’t be hard to come to an agreement.
