Draymond Green Wants A Max Extension – Does He Deserve One?

Draymond Green wants a max extension according to a new report.

The deal would give him $164.2 million over the next five seasons.

From The Report:

While his desire is to remain with the Warriors, Green is said to be willing to explore his outside options to get the kind of contract he wants. That’s a risk Warriors’ management appears willing to take. Green playing this season with a chip on his shoulder, motivated by proving to the league he deserves a max contact, could have a positive on-court impact.

Perhaps a bigger concern is how the NBA Finals MVP would feel about Green not getting an extension. Multiple sources said Curry would not be happy if the Warriors lost Green because the team didn’t want to pay him. Curry is under contract for four more years and has a desire for Green and Thompson to be with him for the length of his stay. A three-year extension would align Green’s contract with Curry’s.

Curry sees the Big Three as a package deal.

There is no question about how important Draymond Green has been to this team. He is one of those players you hate when you are going against them but love when they are on your team. He does all the little things that are needed to win championships. His scoring might not be a lot but there is no question that at his peak he was a key piece to this team and without him they would not have had the success they have had.

The question is does he deserve a max extension? I would say no.

Green is showing that he is not the same player he used to be. Anyone who watched the 2022 finals could see this. He is many ways was a liability. If I am the Warriors I would tell Green if you think you are worth this money go see if anyone else will offer you it. My guess is no other NBA team would offer him this money.
