Draymond Green is a candidate to start at small forward this season.
Andre Iguodala is the favorite to start, but bringing him off the bench to anchor the second unit does make some sense. Iguodala did a lot of ball-handling last season even in the first unit and his ability to play multiple positions also helps make the case that he's a great bench guy. Similarly, Green also has a lot of versatility, playing over 80 possessions at center last season. If he can get around 25 minutes per game, he'll be worth a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Draymond Green is looking to learn all that he can from Steve Kerr this upcoming season.

"[Kerr's] been great. I'm excited," said Green. "He brings the championship pedigree, so you have to try to get all you can out of him and figure out how to win a championship. He's got five of them, so he must know something about it." Draymond will again fit the role of "jack of all trades" for the Warriors this upcoming season, and it'll be interesting to see how Kerr's rotations develop over training camp. As of right now, Green should be viewed as a late round flier in standard leagues.

Draymond Green scored 40 points with 29 rebounds in a Pro-Am game in Michigan on Thursday.

He was spectacular in the playoffs and put up huge numbers vs. the Clippers, averaging 11.9 points, 8.3 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.7 blocks, 1.7 steals and 1.1 triples on 46.7 percent from the field and 79.2 percent from the line. According to Basketball Monster, those stats translated to No. 11 value on a per-game basis among those in the playoffs. It's not quite clear how the Warriors will use him, but his upside makes him worth a look in the later rounds of drafts.

GM Bob Myers stated in a recent interview that he spoke with Draymond Green about increasing his 3-point shooting percentage to the high 30s and becoming a stretch four.

Incoming head coach Steve Kerr has expressed his desire to management to bring a stretch four to the Warriors roster. Although Green is undersized at the position at 6'7", his tenacity on the defensive end compensates for his lack of size. Green increased his 3-point shooting percentage from 20.9 percent during his rookie season, to 33.3 percent this past year, so another jump isn't out of the question.

Draymond Green fouled out during Game 7's loss to the Clippers, finishing with 24 points, seven boards, three assists, two steals, two blocks and five 3-pointers on 9-of-13 shooting.

He played 40 minutes to conclude his coming-out party in this series. In these seven games, Green averaged 11.9 points, 8.3 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.7 blocks, 1.7 steals and 1.1 triples on 46.7 percent from the field. He showed some unbelievable versatility with the Warriors missing Andrew Bogut (ribs) and Green will likely be looking at a bigger role next season even with the team at 100 percent health.

Draymond Green was outstanding in Thursday's 100-99 win over the Clippers with 14 points, 14 boards, four assists, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

Jermaine O'Neal (knee) got hurt and David Lee fouled out, so Green actually got some run at center tonight. He has been stuffing the stat sheet all series, averaging 9.8 points, 8.5 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.7 blocks and 0.5 triples. His contributions on defense have gone a long way and he's one of the bigger unsung heroes of these playoffs so far.

Coach Mark Jackson said following Sunday's game that he will keep Draymond Green in the starting lineup for the rest of the series against the Clippers.

Well, yeah. Green didn't really contribute much of the 118 Warrior points with just four in Game 4, but he filled it up with five boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 41 minutes. He provides such tremendous versatility on defense and it was really evident as he was guarding Chris Paul on pick-and-roll switches. Green is filling up the stat sheet like Josh Smith and isn't even afraid to take shots from within eight feet.

Draymond Green will start in place of Jermaine O'Neal in Game 4 on Sunday.

Coach Mark Jackson said he wanted some resistance to his starting lineup, so he'll go with a smaller unit today. The Clippers do have some size, but DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin have shown they're fully capable of playing in up-tempo games. The minutes probably won't change for Green and O'Neal, but Green deserves to be a bigger part of the offense with how well he's played lately.
Apr 27 - 3:02 PM

While nothing is official, it sounds like there's a good chance Draymond Green will start over Jermaine O'Neal for the Warriors in Sunday's Game 4.

The move would put Green at power forward and guarding PF Blake Griffin, while David Lee would start at center and try to guard, gulp, DeAndre Jordan. Lee hasn't been able to contain Griffin thus far and Jordan would likely have a field day against him as well. With all the attention on Donald Sterling right now, it's going to be nice to get this game underway at 3:30 ET on Sunday.
Apr 27 - 11:08 AM

Draymond Green filled the stat sheet against the Clippers on Thursday with 13 points, 11 boards, two assists, three steals, four blocks and one 3-pointer.

After playing just 23.0 minutes per game in his previous two games, Green went up to 33 tonight. He's shooting the ball well and his contributions on defense have gone a long way. He did commit a flagrant-1 foul tonight for hacking Blake Griffin, but Griffin sold it a bit and Green won't be fined or anything. The Warriors can't play Jermaine O'Neal big minutes, so there should be plenty of Draymond up front.
Apr 25 - 1:42 AM

Draymond Green said on the radio Tuesday that he's upset about all the contact Stephen Curry took against the Clippers in Game 2 on Monday.

"It pissed me off, and we'll remember that," Green said on KNBR radio. Curry and the Warriors were dominated in Game 2 and the series is now tied 1-1, with Game 3 set for Thursday at Golden State. These two teams didn't like each other before the series started, and tempers could flare before it's over.
Apr 23 - 12:12 AM

Draymond Green bruised his right leg during the first half on Saturday, but he quickly returned to post seven points, seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in a road victory.

Green had a tremendous chase-down block on Darren Collison in the third quarter, which should end any speculation about the severity of his injury. His ability to play multiple positions gives coach Mark Jackson an invaluable weapon off the bench, and his 22 minutes of playing time may increase throughout the series since small lineups are inevitable with Andrew Bogut (ribs) on the sidelines.
Apr 19 - 6:53 PM

Draymond Green headed into the Warriors locker room with an apparent right knee injury before halftime on Saturday, but he has since returned.

Green was crossed over by Matt Barnes and fell awkwardly, and after a few moments he left to be evaluated by the training staff. His return is great news for Golden State, as the absence of Andrew Bogut (ribs) has already left them more reliant upon guys like Green, Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights.
Apr 19 - 4:38 PM

Draymond Green is expected to sit out Wednesday's game as a precaution.

Green is coming off a massive game on Monday and with nothing at stake on Wednesday the Warriors will give him some rest. His health and stamina will be crucial for their playoff hopes, since Andrew Bogut's absence with a broken rib means we'll see plenty of small frontcourts with Green alongside David Lee.
Apr 16 - 2:07 PM

Draymond Green scored 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including four threes) with 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks in Monday's win over the Wolves.

Green was everywhere and though the Warriors are talking about resting guys on Wednesday, he will probably be the last core player to get time off. He should be owned in all formats unless he's declared out between now and then.
