Draymond Green on free agency and possibly signing with Detroit: "Nahhh, I don't even want to pretend I'm going somewhere else."

The defending NBA champs have every intention of re-signing the 25-year-old, and the feeling is mutual.

Per the Mercury News:
I asked him specifically: Draymond, are you sure you’ll be part of this team next season? […] “I’ll be here,” Green said firmly and distinctly. “I love this group of guys.”
Green also said he wasn’t really thinking about free agency, because he just won a title, which is fair, and you never know what twists a big negotiation can take. But when I asked Green if he thought this team was capable of winning several more titles, Green’s answer sounded like a promise. […] “We want to come back (to the NBA finals),” Green said. “And this team—we’re young, we’ve got our nucleus in place. We’ve got a lot of guys making sacrifices. I think we can continue to do this for years to come.”
The next step is figuring out how to deal with being king of the NBA mountain. […] “I think it gets harder,” Green said. “Because now everybody’s going to be gunning for you, you’re the defending champs.”
