Golden State Warriors veteran Draymond Green is declining his $27.5 million player option for the 2023-24 season and will enter unrestricted free agency, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
“We will continue to talk to Golden State and explore all options,” Green’s agent, Rich Paul said via ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The 33-year-old has spent his entire 11-season career with the Warriors. While this move signifies the potential for that to change, the team is extending every effort to sign Green on a new deal, according to Wojnarowski and a report from ESPN’s Marc Spears on NBA Today.
The forward will be able to consider possibilities with his longtime team, a sign-and-trade or free agency.
This past season, Green averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists over 73 games. He shot 52.7% from the field and 30.5 percent from 3.
