Albert Nahmad: Only two of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson…

More on Draymond Green Free Agency

Albert Nahmad: Draymond Green making All-NBA at forward didn’t impact Klay Thompson not making it at guard, but it had big ramifications nonetheless. Draymond Green making 3rd Team All-NBA not only took a spot away from Paul George and Gordon Hayward, it had DPVE implications for himself. If Draymond Green makes All-NBA in 1 of next 2 seasons, he’d be eligible to sign huge DVPE in summer 2019: 5 years, ~$225M (starting 20-21).
Albert Nahmad: Warriors have drafted 3 players – Curry, Thompson, Green – who’ve each made All-NBA, and could each qualify for super-max if make it again! NBA teams only allowed to have 2 of its drafted players on DVPs at any given time. If Curry gets one, leaves only one for Thompson or Green. Draymond Green and Klay Thompson now locked in fun battle for DVP candidacy in years ahead – only one can get it (if Steph Curry gets one)!
Bomani Jones: so the Warriors don't think anyone will offer Draymond the max? Cuz that seems to be the read from way over here. Jeff Zillgitt: Some NBA execs had been saying Green's highest-market value is with Warriors where he means more to that team.
Draymond Green is scheduled to meet with the Warriors at 9:01 p.m. Tuesday night when free agents can begin negotiating, and the two sides hope to agree to a contract that will keep him from going on the market, multiple sources told Bay Area News Group columnist Marcus Thompson II on Monday night. On the eve of NBA free agency, Green's agent expressed confidence in the Warriors, who have promised to re-sign the "heartbeat" of their championship team. "We have every reason to believe in management and Joe (Lacob) and his leadership and Bob Myers and all the people there that things will get worked out," agent B.J. Armstrong said. "And we will continue to go through the process.
Despite the expected interest from Golden State and Detroit, Green told Yahoo Sports he would do his due diligence with all suitors when free agency arrives Wednesday. The Atlanta Hawks and Houston Rockets are also expected to be among the teams interested in Green, a source said. The 2015 first all-NBA defensive team selection said he is open to face-to-face team visits with any serious free-agent opportunity, too.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers is prevented by NBA rules from discussing specifics of offseason negotiations with restricted free agent Draymond Green. But the NBA's executive of the year said the organization recognizes Green's value. "Tell the Warrior fans they shouldn't worry," Myers said Tuesday as the team held its shootaround session in preparation for Game 6 at the Quicken Loans Arena.
