Warriors should give Draymond a long-term contract

ESPN and Andscape NBA insider Marc Spears has given some insight into the big question mark hanging over Draymond Green’s future.

“After his last game I spoke to him and he said, ‘I’ve been here 11 years, you’re not just changing that. I would love to be back,'” Spears said Friday on ESPN’s “NBA Today.” ” “His name is also Steph [Curry] and Clay [Thompson] his brothers.

“He also said it was a business and he wanted a long-term contract. Expect the Warriors to give it to him.”

Green became an unrestricted free agent after declining his $27.6 million player option with the Warriors for the 2023-24 season. He will hit the open market for the first time in his career once the trading window officially opens at 3:00 p.m. PT on Friday.

Dipping his toes in uncharted waters, Green has many suitors vying for his services. Reports have swirled about his hometown Detroit Pistons being interested in the four-time champion, as well as the Sacramento Kings and many others.

Green and the Warriors have been working on a number that both parties like and by Sunday they were reportedly closer to closing a deal.

NBA insider Marc Stein wrote he heard ‘nothing but strong confidence’ about a multi-year contract deal to keep Green at the bay, where he played his entire NBA career.

Jason Dumas reported on June 19 that Green was looking for a three-year contract to match Curry’s current deal, and a few days later Green apparently hinted on his Instagram story that he was expecting a contract of nearly $100. $100 million.

Whatever happens, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to teammates Curry and Thompson as Green said he keeps the Splash Bros up to date with all of his free agency updates.
