The Golden State Warriors extended Draymond Green this past summer, but he’s still one of their more tradable assets. However, in no way does that mean they’ll even consider trading him, but it seems more likely than either Klay or Steph.
The 29-year-old had one of the worst seasons of his career last season. He averaged under eight points per game and seemingly struggled to play alongside Kevin Durant as he was typically the offense’s fourth option.
Green should return to relevance this season just as he did during the postseason. However, if he does, expect him to be a hot name if the Warriors struggle immensely, which is at the very least possible.
The leader of the team defensively and emotionally, Green is the engine that keeps going. He is the passion behind the Warriors, and he’s a player that is unique in the league. That doesn’t mean he’s exempt from being traded if he doesn’t play up to expectations.
Green signed a four-year, $100 million extension this past offseason, locking him in for five more seasons. He’ll be 34 when this contract ends. That said, Golden State needs the old Draymond this season, or they could find the best value and move on.
Realistically, don’t expect him to be moved, but he is a valuable asset for the team.
