Draymond Green Agrees to 5-Year Deal to Stay with Warriors

Bob Donnan/USA TODAY Sports

Talks between the Golden State Warriors and Draymond Green reportedly broke down earlier Wednesday, but the two sides hammered have hammered out a deal:

Green confirmed the news through a video on Bleacher Report.

Interestingly enough, this deal is a bit less than the max, although Green certainly deserved the max for all he means to Golden State. He also opted for the long-term deal instead of going for a shorter deal, but considering he’s played the last three seasons for cheap, it’s not all that surprising that he went for the big guaranteed money right now.

Green showed flashes of being a solid role player before this past season, but an injury to David Lee at the beginning of the year helped pave the way for Green’s breakout campaign. His versatility on both ends of the floor was instrumental to the Warriors’ championship run, and he was Defensive Player of the Year runner-up.

There was little doubt that Green was going to ink a new deal with the Warriors, but it’s good to get it out of the way at the beginning of free agency. Now we’ll see if Golden State is able to trade Lee to help save some bucks.
