Green was engaged to TV personality Hazel Renee in January. The announcement was buried in a conversation from head coach Steve Kerr during a road trip in Los Angeles in the middle of the season.
Draymond and many other NBA stars bowed out of Team USA during the FIBA World Cup over the summer, as the Americans had to settle for a seventh-place finish.

Green joins Warriors teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson among those who want to represent Team USA. The countdown to Tokyo is on.
