“To be in this position, signing back long term with the Warriors is amazing. It’s an organization I love, it’s great being a part of, best fans in the NBA, first class organization.”

Green, 25, had a career year for the Dubs, starting  79 games averaging 11.7 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 3.7 APG, 1.3 BPG, 1.6 SPG and shot 44.3% which is all career highs. Green also finished 2nd in the DPOY voting.

In the playoffs he averaged 13.7 points, 10.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists. Green also brings intensity and hustle which are the anchors to his game. He can play and defend multiple positions, spreading out the floor and hitting the three ball. His worth and value is brought to the Warriors in many different ways.
