Draymond Green has decided to renew his contract with the Golden State Warriors. After declining the option for an automatic renewal, the power forward reached a new agreement on the first day of NBA free agency, according to sources cited by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Green’s contract will be for four years and worth $100 million, with the last year being a player option for automatic renewal.
At 33 years old, Draymond Green was drafted by the Warriors and has been a part of the team throughout his 11-year NBA career. In Golden State, he has won four championships alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The renewal of Green’s contract ensures that this trio will remain together for some time.
Green, a four-time All-Star, also has an impressive defensive record. He has been selected for the All-Defensive Team in eight seasons, including a second-team selection in the last season. Additionally, Green was named the Defensive Player of the Year in 2017.
In addition to the renewal with Green, the Warriors also made a trade involving Jordan Poole and two other players to acquire Chris Paul, further strengthening the team.
