Luckily for the Golden State Warriors, Draymond Green didn’t pull any shenanigans like DeAndre Jordan. Saving some sweat, tears, and heartache for the fans, the forward that was once too small to play in the NBA is signing his new contract.
From making an excess of $900,000, Green will officially sign on with the Warriors for five more seasons. Green’s contract will keep Curry as the fifth highest paid salary on the roster (David Lee out, Draymond up). At 11:00 AM, the Warriors practice facility will transform into a press conference to announce Green’s return.
Late last night, Green announced his arrival to the Bay Area via Twitter with a slew of emojis that insists happiness and a contract signing is coming:
Uhhhh ohh wheels down in the bay 😜😜😜😜📝📝📝

CSN Bay Area will host a live stream for the fans to see the entire event. Last season, Green averaged 1.7 points, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals and endless hustle. As a crucial part of the Warriors championship team, Green is welcomed back with open arms.
The league has seen the Warriors play an unheralded style of basketball and win a championship. Playing small ball and draining threes, the Dubs have been able to change the opinions of critics.
The Western Conference has decided to bulk up to try and knock Golden State off. The Clippers were relieved to get Jordan back, the Spurs are undeniably better with LaMarcus Aldridge, and the New Orleans Pelicans now have the Warriors’ former assistant head coach. The Warriors believe in their core, and have brought back everyone they need to attempt to repeat.
