USA forward Draymond Green’s preparations for the Rio Olympics have taken a turn for the worse this past weekend.
The Golden State Warriors star was arrested for assault on Sunday in Michigan.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green — the former Michigan State star and member of this summer’s United States Olympic men’s basketball team — was arrested for assault Sunday in East Lansing, according to MLive sources.
Coming off the finest season of his four-year NBA career, Green averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 34.7 minutes per game in 2015-16. He helped lead the Warriors to an appearance in the NBA Finals, while making headlines for some physical play along the way, including an altercation with LeBron James that led to his suspension in Game 5 of the championship series.
This summer, Green was selected to represent the United States in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Last summer, the Saginaw native agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Warriors worth $85 million. He was originally drafted 35th overall in the 2012 NBA draft.
