Draymond Green and the Warriors have agreed on a five-year, $85 million deal.
There was no way any team had a chance to pry Draymond Green away from the Warriors. He will continue to get minutes at center and should have even more playing time next season. The Warriors are expected to try and deal David Lee, but that won't affect Green's playing time. He's a top-25 pick in fantasy leagues? Yeah. Jul 1 - 10:58 PM

The Warriors and restricted free agent Draymond Green have broken off contract talks.

The Warriors met with Green and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, in Los Angeles after 12:01 a.m. EDT. Green has likely earned a max deal and Tristan Thompson getting around $80 million is going to strengthen the case for Draymond, too. The Warriors are still likely to match any deal.

The Warriors' first call in the free agency period was to restricted free agent Draymond Green.

He's staying? Yeah. He's likely to get close to a max deal? Yeah. Parade references aside, it would be a shock to see Draymond on another team next year. Expect this deal to get done quickly for the second-round fantasy talent.
Jul 1 - 4:32 AM

Draymond Green said he's entering restricted free agency with "no expectations," but the Warriors are likely to match any offer he receives.

Golden State has the upper-hand to retain their versatile forward, who is coming off a career-year during which he averaged 11.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists while earning All-Defensive First Team honors. "[The Warriors] said they wanted to keep me, but we will see what happens," Green said. "There is really no need to feel pressure." The Pistons, Hawks and Rockets reportedly have interest in Draymond, but all signs point to him beginning the 2015-16 season in the Bay Area.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said that he plans on keeping the team's core together next season.

"Our hope is to keep the core together," said Myers. "That is within our control. Clearly, with the success we’ve had this season, the players have shown this group can win. High character. A lot of youth. They’ve been able to complement each other." Draymond Green is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, but all signs point to him returning to Golden State. Green averaged 11.7 points, 8.2 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.3 blocks, 1.6 steals and 1.4 3-pointers during the regular season, and he will deserve every penny of the massive contract that he will sign this summer.

Draymond Green said the Cavaliers "suck" in the Warriors parade celebration.

"Splash Brothers? Yep," Green said during an celebratory interview on CSN Bay Area. "Cavaliers? Nope. We won? Yeah. They suck? Yeah. We here? Yeah. They not? Nope." We are speechless. We are without speech.
Jun 19 - 2:27 PM

Draymond Green, who is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, hinted that he will be back with the Warriors next season.

"I’ll be here," Green said in regards to free agency. "I love this group of guys." Green was simply phenomenal this season, and he ended up notching a triple-double with 16 points, 11 boards and 10 assists in Game 6 as the Warriors clinched the Larry O'Brien Trophy. Green had regular season averages of 11.7 points, 8.2 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.3 blocks, 1.6 steals and 1.4 3-pointers, and there is no reason why he shouldn't continue to improve. Expect to see him in a Warriors uniform next season.

Draymond Green triple-doubled in Golden State's triumphant Game 6 road win, posting 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in 41 minutes of action.

He also hit two 3-pointers with three steals and one block, and caused the general mayhem that will earn him a massive payday in free agency this summer. He's a restricted FA, like Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler, and the Warriors sound committed to matching any offer he receives from another team.

Warriors' GM Bob Myers implied on Tuesday that the Dubs will match whatever offer comes in on Draymond Green when he hits free agency this offseason.

"Tell the Warrior fans they shouldn't worry," said Myers regarding Green's upcoming contract situation. "He has tremendous value. I think that's apparent to anyone who watches our team. It's apparent to us. There's a lot that he does that people don't even see, that's off the court, as far as being a leader in the ways that he is. But yeah, his value to us is extremely high. We're clearly not in this position without him." The Warriors have said time and again that they will match whatever offer comes in for Green, and with the salary cap expected to take a dramatic leap in 2016, anything the Warriors sign Green to this offseason will look like a bargain in just a few years. There's no reason to think the Dubs will let one of their core pieces to this year's Finals run walk during free agency.

Draymond Green scored 16 points on 4-of-9 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 7-of-10 FTs) with nine rebounds and five assists in Sunday's Game 5 win.

Green can't cover LeBron James at all but he can still be an irritant defensively and now that he's playing at the center position he has found his mojo on offense. The Cavs need to find an adjustment that takes away his easy catches off the Stephen Curry pick-and-roll.
Jun 14 - 11:53 PM

Draymond Green bounced back against the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 17 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He played a lot more center tonight and the Warriors just seem to be a better team when he's in that role. Green didn't have his strongest rebounding game tonight, but he didn't turn the ball over while making a ton of plays on the offensive side. If he plays like this, the Warriors have to like their chances.

Draymond Green (back) doesn't have a minutes limit on Thursday night.

He said his back has been locking up on him and it's been an ongoing issue. Green was not happy about the Warriors losing so many hustle plays, so expect him to maybe have a little extra motivation. Of course, that's not the problem with Dray.
Jun 11 - 7:48 PM

Draymond Green understands that he needs to be better for the Warriors to pull out a win during Thursday's Game 4, and he took blame for the Warriors struggles during a recent interview.

"If I play to my level, I think we’re up 3-0," Green said. "But I haven’t. So we’re down 2-1. So it’s on me." Green has been uncharacteristically ineffective throughout the Finals thus far, shooting just 26.7 percent from the field (12.5 percent from deep), to go with averages of 9.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and just 0.3 three-pointers per game. Green really needs to get his 3-point shot to start falling to open up the floor for the Warriors, and it'll be interesting to see how the Dubs respond as a team with their back against the wall heading into a crucial Game 4 in Cleveland.
Jun 11 - 2:59 PM

Draymond Green said the Warriors have to play with more desperation in the NBA Finals.

While bringing up the fact that Matthew Dellavedova came up with every loose ball in Game 3 on Tuesday, Green issued a challenge to his teammates. "They're playing like a team that's desperate and needs something. We're playing like a team that's not desperate and got something." Green will need a better performance in Game 4 as he's shot just 26.7 percent from the field in the Finals while dealing with back spasms, but the 25-year-old said his back should be ready for Thursday.

Draymond Green (back) is not listed on the Warriors' injury report.

There are no injuries on the report, so this also means that Klay Thompson (thigh) is fine as well. Green struggled mightily during Game 3 and said that his back was constantly locking up on him, so it's a good sign that the Warriors don't appear to be concerned. Expect Green to be in the starting lineup in Game 4 on Thursday, but he is going to have to play much better if the Warriors want to avoid a 3-1 deficit.
