Draymond Green could leave Golden State Warriors: Reports

While Draymond Green attempts to earn a maximum contract extension, he could become a free agent soon and it is being rumored that a few clubs in the NBA could convince the player to leave his current employers. There is enough evidence to suggest that he will not shy away from a move if any club offers him a decent contract. 

While Draymond Green attempts to earn a maximum contract extension, he could become a free agent soon and it is being rumored that a few clubs in the NBA could convince the player to leave his current employers. There is enough evidence to suggest that he will not shy away from a move if any club offers him a decent contract. 

Sean Deveney from Heavy has been reporting closely regarding this saga and a Western Conference executive has told him that three clubs are currently in contention to make a move for the player. This includes Detroit Pistons, Dallas Mavericks, and Californian rivals LA Lakers. 

Formerly a Defensive Player of the Year in the NBA, Draymond hails from Michigan and could be attracted to a move to his hometown club Pistons. They also are capable of making a lucrative offer for the player as Draymond is capable of offering great support to the young crop of defensive players in Pistons, who are all hailed as the next big thing in the NBA. 

However, an offer from LA Lakers could also be pursued if things fall into place well. The 32-year-old has a great relationship with LeBron James and Klutch Sports, who handle plenty of Lakers players and manage the Warriors man. 

Draymond Green spent all his career at the Golden State Warriors and has played a crucial role in the club’s four Championship triumphs since 2015. After winning the title last season, it is possible that the Basketballer is looking for a different challenge. The Warriors have also asked the player to take a pay cut, which includes other extension-elibile players like Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Jordan Poole. 

The Warriors’ team President and General manager Bob Myers has expressed that they will try their best to hold on to the player. 

“No, no, I would definitely, unequivocally say (he’s) not a guy we look at and say he’s not going to be around. Now, at some point, decisions will have to be made. But as far as his importance to this organization and what he’s done, we’re going to do everything we can to keep him in the fold.” Myers said to Heavy.com when asked about Green’s situation.
