Draymond Green played a significantly better game in the playoffs this season than he did in the regular season, seeing boosts to his offensive efficiency, scoring and rebounding.  Additionally, he’s a solid defender. Grabbing boards and locking opponents down is what this Michigan product has been known for, and it’s what the Warriors drafted him to do.

However, he’s occasionally shown flashes of scoring potential, which is what he needs to boost to “break out” this season.

Green won’t see much of a spike in his action, though, which means his development will continue on its normal trajectory: not quite at the breakout level. Despite that, good defense is a sought-after trait, especially on this squad.

With Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala ahead of him on the depth sheet, though, it’s hard to see Green making much headway towards the spotlight this season.
