Eventually, the Golden State Warriors will have to make important contract decisions on Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole.
Green is eligible for a new contract as early as this August. Although he has been with the franchise for such a long time, it doesn't sound like he's willing to take a hometown discount.
Per The Athletic's Anthony Slater and Marcus Thompson II, Green believes he deserves a max contract for the Warriors.
A max contract for Green would allow him to make $164.2 million over a five-year span.
Some fans are against the idea that Green is a "max player."
Others, however, don't blame Green for wanting a deal of this magnitude.
Green has been an integral part of the Warriors' success over the past decade. He isn't a lethal scorer like Steph Curry, but he knows how to stuff the stat sheet.
Not only is Green a versatile player, he's a tremendous leader. Losing him would leave the Warriors with a massive void to fill in the locker room.
It'll be interesting to see how the Warriors handle their negotiations with Green, that's for sure.
