    GM: Warriors fans shouldn't worry about Draymond Green leaving

    Warriors third-year forward Draymond Green will also be their fourth-year forward if general manager Bob Myers is true to his word in regard to the soon-to-be restricted free agent. "Tell the Warriors fans they shouldn't worry," Myers told the San Jose Mercury News. The Warriors can match any offer from another team to keep Green, who earned NBA All-Defensive first team honors and has proven to be an emotional leader. League rules prohibit Myers from commenting on how much the team would pay to keep Green, but the latter made his feelings clear. "He has tremendous value," Myers added. "I think that's apparent to anyone who watches our team. It's apparent to us. There's a lot that he does that people don't even see, that's off the court, as far as being a leader in the ways that he is. ... We're clearly not (in the NBA Finals) without him. He checks so many boxes as far as leadership, effort, intensity, skill, winning."

    Warriors' Draymond Green not worried about free agency, wants title

    Warriors small forward Draymond Green is in for a huge pay day this offseason, but he's more concerned about claiming the NBA title, per the New York Post. Green, who will be a restricted free agent this offseason, will be a hot commodity come July, when any team can make him an offer that the Warriors can match. Still, he's more worried about winning the title his team hasn't won since the 70s. "As far as the free-agency game, I guess people are anticipating it, but I'm trying to win a championship,'' Green said. "That takes as much focus in itself than worrying about something that happens in July. Right now it's all about the team trying to win a championship. "It's been an adjustment for sure adjusting to a lot of the attention, being more in the spotlight, meaning more to your team. It's been fun and I've enjoyed it.'' Green came in second in the Defensive Player of the Year voting this season, and has established himself as a two-way threat in the league. He's going to be paid this offseason, whether it be by the Warriors or another suitor. "None of that stuff matters right now,'' Green said Thursday. "We're together right now. We have two more weeks to try to finish off the job we started in September. That's the most important thing. All the other stuff, I can't control it anyway so why worry about it.''
