With so much uncertainty regarding the future of the Warriors, basically, anything that happens with the team is news. Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are, obviously, where people have their eyes right now, but Draymond Green has as good a chance of being gone as the rest of them.
And one recent move by the Golden State forward has some raising an eyebrow.
According to Yahoo Sports Chris Haynes, Draymond Green is close to signing with Klutch Sports’ Rich Paul.
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.
At the conclusion of this season, the three-time All-Star will have a year remaining on the five-year, $82 million contract he signed in 2015.
Green, 28, is arguably the most versatile defender in the league and will be a coveted free-agent target in the summer of 2020 if an extension isn’t reached with the Warriors this upcoming offseason.

This move doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but keep in mind that Anthony Davis made a similar move before requesting a trade from the Pelicans months later. Maybe Draymond knows that there’s a good chance he’ll be traded or will request a trade himself before the end of next season.
Rich Paul also represents LeBron James, which means there would be a direct link between the players.
No matter what this means (if anything at all), Draymond Green is likely in for a wild summer as the Warriors try to get a grasp on what things might look like come August.
