Draymond Green is going to be one of the more fascinating free agents when the summer of 2020 rolls around. The Golden State Warriors’ do-everything forward is an unrestricted free agent following next season, at which point Green will be 30 years old and vying for a big payday from a team.
When Green does end up hitting the market, he’ll reportedly have new representation. According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Green has decided to make a move and hire Rich Paul as his agent.
Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is close to hiring Rich Paul of Klutch Sports as his basketball representation, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
He was previously repped by Wasserman.
Getting Paul in would mean the Klutch Sports founder would sit down at the negotiating table with the Warriors this summer to try and hammer out an extension for Green. If that can’t happen, Green would hit unrestricted free agency the following summer, where he’d be one of the biggest names on the market but also one of its most unique cases: Green is a stout defender and excellent playmaker, but his deficiencies on the offensive end of the floor are well-documented.
Green has said he wants to spend his career with Golden State, which bodes well for the Warriors. Still, with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both unrestricted free agents, this has the potential to be a hectic summer for the Dubs, even before they get to hammering something out with Green.
