Draymond Green explained his decision to change his representation from B.J. Armstrong of The Wasserman Group to Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.
"Klutch is a cutting-edge company, it's a pure environment, and I've grown to know Rich over the years," Green told The Undefeated. "We've become very close. When you really take a step back and actually study what is going on, he checks every box that a player would want in an agent. So, why not? Some are afraid of what people will think or what will be said. That's not the case for me."
Green will be an unrestricted free agent in 2020. Green is in the fourth year of a five-year, $82 million contract he signed with the Golden State Warriors in 2015.
Green is a minority owner in LeBron James' multimedia site "Uninterrupted". James, however, didn't strongly recruit him to sign with Klutch.
"It's impossible to say LeBron played no part in me joining Klutch, simply because he has been Klutch since the beginning," Green said. "He's essentially a founding partner. I've already had a relationship with LeBron for years, so it's always good to be able to do business with family that's going about their business in the right fashion and getting things done. But as far as recruiting me -- no, LeBron didn't recruit me at all."
