Draymond Green will be eligible to sign an extension with the Warriors on August 3. Coming off a championship season, the 32-year-old forward reportedly wants a four-year max extension which would earn him $164.2 over the next five seasons. Currently he has two years left on his current max deal with the Dubs.
The former Defensive Player of Year has been an integral part of Golden State as they won four championships in eight years. He was in the race for the DPOY in more that one season and views himself as a key piece of the Warriors who deserves a max deal.
However, reportedly Golden State is not interested in offering Green a max extension, at least not this year. It is thought that the current NBA champions will wait until next summer before they start contract extension talks with the player.
Draymond Green, according to sources, wants and believes he deserves a maximum contract extension from the Warriors. Aug. 3 is when he is eligible to sign a four-year deal. That is his desired length. After playing like the Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner before injury shortened his regular season, after helping lead the Warriors to a fourth championship in eight seasons, Green is convinced the core of the Warriors’ dynasty is worth every possible penny, and that definitely includes him.
