The Golden State Warriors have a potentially difficult contract negotiation this offseason with Draymond Green. Green has a $27.6 million player option for 23-24 that he can decline to become a free agent. Green is undecided on that decision though both he and the Warriors share interest on a long-term deal.
"Look, if Draymond is not back, we're not a championship contender," Steve Kerr said. "We know that. He's that important to winning and to who we are. I absolutely want him back."
But Kerr made it clear: "He knows that he also compromised things by what happened back in October. So part of him coming back next year has to be about rebuilding some of that trust and respect that he's earned here for a long period of time."
Green and Kerr haven't spoken since Golden State's season ended, but Kerr said he expects them to talk soon.
