One of the hottest commodities heading into the NBA free agency period has been Draymond Green. From the time that he declined his $27.5 million option. Though, the 33-year-old forward is now off the board as Draymond Green has signed a new deal with Golden State.
Green has spent 11 years of his career as a Warrior alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Building a big three with those two that went on to win four NBA championships in eight years. Green may not be the best scorer in the world, but what he does provide is the rebounds, passing and defense. He’s been named to the All-NBA Defensive team on eight separate occasions and was once a defensive player of the year.
Green has not given much insight to his free agency, though he stated on his podcast that he is staying in communication with Curry and Thompson about the process. Even with Green declining the player option, the Warriors had remained optimistic that he’d re-sign. The four-time all-star was hoping to receive a new contract within the first few days of free agency.
Outside of the Warriors, four teams had been mentioned as potential suitors: Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers. The Kings had the most money to offer. Not to mention, they are a team on the rise. The Pistons are still somewhat in the midst of a rebuild, so in all honesty that doesn’t make sense. With Portland, there’s Damian Lillard who has been rumored to leave.
The deal is reportedly worth four years, $100 million. It contains a player option for the fourth year. Draymond Green will stay with Golden State and hope the championship window stays open.
