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.

Draymond Green tired of playing against bad teams (like Kings or Thunder)

In a preview for the latest installment of Uninterrupted’s “The Shop,” Green didn’t hold back while talking about the “sorry motherf–kers” he and the Warriors face in the regular season. “It’s not a night that I show up and don’t wanna be a dog,” Green says in the clip, posted Thursday. “Especially if it’s LeBron [James] coming in or a Giannis [Antetokounmpo] coming in cause that’s them games I live for. “It’s the nights I show up, and we playing against the sorry motherf–kers like the Kings. OKC right now. The Kings may get better I hope, but you know, it’s like, how am I supposed to get myself up, with like, this engine, from playing in so many big-time games to playing on this soft Tuesday?”

Altercation with Draymond Green doesn't affect Jordan Poole extension talks

Does this affect Poole’s contract negotiation? There’s no reason it should. If the Warriors come up with a lucrative enough long-term offer that appeals to Poole, all indications are that he remains willing to sign it and tie himself to the Warriors deep into his mid-20s. Myers said Thursday that he remains in contact with Poole’s representatives. “(The incident) doesn’t change our feelings on it,” Myers said.
Myers opted against announcing the punishment, but there were hints. The general manager said he didn’t anticipate that Green would miss any games, which would rule out a suspension, though, sources indicate, that was at least discussed. If it is a fine, the maximum allowable is $50,000. Green came into the facility and apologized to the team Thursday morning, then departed and missed the Warriors’ practice and scrimmage. “Space is good,” Myers said.
“We are entering a tunnel and it’s gonna be a dark place for a while, but at the end, it’s going to be light and joy.” Kawhi Leonard pumped the brakes on the Clippers hype train, saying it’s only the beginning of a long journey.

Would you say this is the worst thing about the NBA? Tomas Satoransky: “I think that’s the hardest thing. The truth is that it is a business, something that I never wanted to accept in this sense and confirm it. You always had a passion for basketball, it’s clear that they pay us a lot of money but sometimes it’s too much business and that makes it difficult to build chemistry in the team, which is very important and Spain showed it in the Eurobasket. It is the most difficult especially when you have small children, it has to be really tough for some players”.
