Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green revealed the team's plans for a potential visit to the White House.

He thinks the team will politely decline the offer - if an offer is made.

"I just don't think that we accept, to put it politely," Green said on Yahoo Sports' "Inside the Green Room" podcast.

Green expanded on his decision:

 "I try to respect everybody in every field that they do regardless of how crazy things are. But he makes it really hard. He makes it very, very tough to respect how he goes about things and does things. But to put it politely, I think it's a hard no.

I'm sure he's going to take his invite back if we do decide to say no. He's going to be like, 'Well, I didn't invite them anyway.' That's fine."

Green went on to say he is excited about a potential meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Golden State Warriors skipped the customary White House visit on each of their last two championships. President Donald Trump revoked his invitation to the Warriors after their title in 2018.
