Draymond Green isn’t leaving Golden State anytime soon, as the All-Star forward agreed to a four-year, $100 million extension with the Warriors this summer.
It was a big move for Green and the Warriors, who are moving forward in the wake of a big summer that included Kevin Durant leaving in free agency for Brooklyn.
Green led the recruitment of Durant to Golden State, though he apparently didn’t do much this time around.
Speaking to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, Green explained that it was a personal decision and he understands why Durant didn’t reach out to him.
“I’m not about to go to Kevin Durant and say, ‘Hey, Kevin, can I get my fiancé pregnant?’” Green explained.
“It’s my life. Am I supposed to come to you and, A, let you know, Or B, ask you for permission? No.”
Draymond tells me he’s totally fine KD didn’t talk to him about going to the Nets; “I'm not about to go to Kevin Durant & say, ‘Hey, Kevin, can I get my fiancé pregnant?’”

Durant and Green had a couple of blowups during the 2018-19 regular season, but their time together in Golden State was incredibly successful.
The Warriors won two championships in three years – and it might’ve been a three for three if not for Durant and Klay Thompson’s injuries.
Perhaps we’ll get a Warriors-Nets NBA Finals once Durant returns to full health in 2020-21.
