根據消息，勇士大前鋒Draymond Green在2015年時簽下五年$82m的合約，他認為他能簽下$96m頂薪，但因為Kevin Durant的加入自願給了折扣勇士隊。
「我拿少點就能讓KD加入！ 」Green在NBA 總決賽時向ESPN 談這事。
“I took less so we could go after KD,” Green told ESPN during the Finals. “I am a student of this game, and I studied the business side of it and the numbers, where some people don’t. They leave it up to their agent to do it.”
LeBron James 說：「Draymond 是勇士防守的催化劑及核心。他非常非常聰明(防守)，他如蒼蠅一樣影響整隊防守，無論是外圍防守還是保護籃框。」
“Draymond is a catalyst and the anchor for their defense,” LeBron James said. “Very, very smart defensively. He knows pretty much every set. He kind of flies around and dictates their defense, either on the perimeter or protecting the rim as well.
“I want to win,” Green said. “I want to win at all costs.”
“I think my max was $96 million,” Green said. “That money is not changing my neighborhood. It’s probably $6 million after taxes and fees. It’s not changing my neighborhood, but championships can. Championships can change my life.
