Report: Draymond Green Has ‘Significant Interest’ in Signing With Pistons This Summer
The Warriors may be 42-9 and favorites to win the NBA title, but their soon-to-be free agents are already thinking about next steps. Draymond Green is averaging career highs in both points and rebounds this season, and he’s reportedly looking to get paid this summer. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, that offer could come from the Detroit Pistons. Details:
Draymond Green has a significant interest with pursuing an offer sheet with his hometown Detroit Pistons, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Green has loved playing with the Warriors and winning, and naturally Golden State is determined to find a way to retain him. Still, the Warriors’ salary structure almost dictates that Green has to go onto the market and get an offer sheet for them to match in July.
If the offer is too rich to match, the chance for Green to return to his beloved home state – where he grew up in Saginaw and played at Michigan State in East Lansing – has long intrigued him, sources said.
Green still spends most of his time away from the NBA in Michigan.
