Draymond Green is attracting attention from a number of teams around the League in free agency, but has over and over again stated he’d like to remain with the NBA Champion Warriors. Still, according to a report, contract talks have been “broken off” between the two sides—for now. Golden State remains the frontrunner to keep Green but it’s worth noting that he’ll take a few meetings, apparently.
From Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports:
The Golden State Warriors and restricted free-agent forward Draymond Green have broken off contract talks, a source told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday.
The Warriors met with Green and agent B.J. Armstrong in Los Angeles after 12:01 a.m. ET on Tuesday when NBA free agents could first begin negotiating with teams, a source told Yahoo Sports. The Warriors were given the first opportunity to reach a contract agreement before Green considered talking with other teams. But with the breakdown in talks, Green is now open to meeting with other franchises immediately, the source said.
The Warriors can still match any offer sheet Green signs because he is a restricted free agent.
