Warriors expected to sign Draymond to three-year deal

Draymond Green and the Warriors would be closer to an agreement.

After initially giving up his $27.6 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent on June 30, it seems likely that Green will return to the Warriors.

“I continue to hear nothing but strong confidence from the Bay Area that a multi-year deal for Green to stay where he has always been is coming. (A three-year deal, according to league sources, is a popular current projection for the 33-year-old.),” NBA insider Marc Stein wrote in his Substack newsletter (h/t Bleacher Report).

Jason Dumas reported on June 19 that Green was seeking a three-year deal to match Steph Curry’s current deal, which is set to expire after the 2025-26 NBA season.

Earlier this week, Green apparently hinted that he was hoping to earn around $100 million on his next contract.

Although it was rumored on social media that Green could potentially team up with LeBron James in Los Angeles, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on June 20 that the 33-year-old and the Warriors were “destined to reunite. “.

Warriors general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr. reiterated how badly he and coach Steve Kerr want Green back with Golden State.

“I think Steve said it, and I’ll say it again: we really want Draymond back,” Dunleavy said during his introductory press conference as Warriors general manager on June 19. “What he means for this organization, this team, in terms of trying to win at the highest level, you feel you have to have him. It’s very important.

With June 30 drawing ever closer, it’s becoming increasingly clear where Green might ultimately end up.

And if all goes well by the start of free agency, the four-time champion could stay with the only NBA franchise he’s ever played for.
