Draymond Green Rumored To Leave Warriors And Join Lakers This Summer

Draymond Green has been a crucial member of the Golden State Warriors during their incredible run, contributing to the team's four NBA championships in six trips to the NBA Finals.

There are rumors that Green may leave the team soon and end his memorable tenure with the Dubs, which has led to speculation about which team he may join next.

Dan Favale of Bleacher Report listed Green as a free agent that could realistically change teams this season, noting that just like Klay Thompson, Green isn't getting any younger, and the Warriors' front office might be forced to pick between one of them.

Green just turned 33, while Klay Thompson will be entering the final year of his deal next season, and Steph Curry turns 35 on March 14. This has led to questions about whether the Warriors are prepared to pay $24-plus million salaries for five players.

According to Favale, three teams could be Draymond Green's next home: the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Indiana Pacers.

The Lakers could be a potential destination for Green, who has connections to the team's superstar LeBron James and could provide a much-needed defensive presence to complement James and Anthony Davis.

The Houston Rockets are another team that could use Green's skills, as they are in the midst of a rebuilding process and could benefit from his veteran leadership and playoff experience.

The Indiana Pacers are a team that could use Green's defensive prowess and versatility, as they are looking to compete in the Eastern Conference and have struggled on the defensive end this season.

Ultimately, it remains to be seen whether Green will leave the Warriors or stay with the team that has been his home for so many years. However, with several teams reportedly interested in his services, it seems likely that he will have plenty of options if he decides to test the free-agent market.
