Jake Paul willing to pay $10 million to get Draymond Green in a boxing ring

Draymond Green proved he can throw a mean punch … and Jake Paul’s already drooling over the Warriors star’s potential — saying he’d pay $10 MILLION to get the 4-time champ in the boxing ring ASAP. TMZ Sports obtained video of 32-year-old Green knocking teammate Jordan Poole to the ground after a heated back-and-forth during practice on Wednesday.

Deron Williams: I was trying to recruit everybody; nobody is coming to Utah

During a recent interview on “The Ringer NBA Show,” retired ex-All-Star Deron Williams opened up about the realities of playing in Utah. “I’ve been around all the best players in the world,” said Williams. “I played in the Olympics, right? And I was trying to recruit everybody. I’m talking everybody. Nobody’s coming to Utah. “And I know, I’m a really good player at the time,” Williams went on. “But I know, Number 1, I’m a point guard. You don’t win championships with just a point guard. You need pieces. We need other pieces. All I saw, the writing on the wall was, nobody is gonna come to Utah. Not one person I’ve ever talked to was interested in coming to Utah. It just was a reality.”
Carlos Boozer said there was no pressure replacing Karl Malone in Utah, because Andrei Kirilenko was already very good, he was joined in free agency by Mehmet Okur, and the team drafted Deron Williams a year later to form a talented core: “I had a blast here. I had a great time, man — this is one of the best teams I ever played on. We were like a family. Coach Sloan made sure of that, Larry Miller made sure of that. My kids would be running up and down the hallway, all our kids would be doing the same thing. We had a really unique team where everybody was an option.”
