However, at age 32, there is some speculation that Green might not be with the team for much longer.
He supposedly wants a maximum contract extension from the team when the next offseason begins, but many people assume that won’t happen.
That became even less likely after Green was suspended for punching his teammate, Jordan Poole, right before the season began.
“Quite frankly, the writing’s on the wall."
Draymond Green on the possibility of not being a Warrior 👀
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) January 14, 2023
Green, never one to bite his tongue, opened up about his future in the league while speaking with Taylor Rooks.
Rooks asked Green if it’s hard to think of a time when he isn’t playing for Golden State.
Green said it wasn’t and then mentioned, “Quite frankly, the writing’s on the wall.”
The four-time All-Star is apparently okay with the idea of leaving the Warriors and commented that the NBA is a business and needs to be respected as one.
This is the most honest comment we have gotten from Green about leaving the Warriors and it makes it clear that he thinks he won’t be with Golden State forever.
Does this mean he’s giving up the dream of a max contract extension?
Perhaps he is just trying to play nice in hopes of improving his chances.
Or maybe he’s attempting to raise his profile with other teams for the upcoming offseason.
We don’t know what’s next for Green but he has stepped it up a bit during the 2022-23 season, with an average of 7.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.6 assists.
But it now seems clear that Green feels his days with Golden State are numbered.
