Here are Draymond Green’s contract details with the Warriors
In August 2019, Green signed a four-year contract extension with the Warriors. Multiple league sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Monte Poole that the contract is worth $100 million.
The extension brought Green's total contract to five years, $118 million.
When asked about the reason for re-signing with the Warriors, Green told ESPN "I got two guys I been rollin' with since I stepped in this league, Steph and Klay. He added, "We started this whole Golden State thing when it wasn't so sexy."
Green even opened up about the contract negotiations with the Warriors. He revealed to ESPN that Warriors General Manager Bob Myers reached out first about negotiating the extension.
A look at Draymond Green’s shoe deal with Converse
In March 2020, Green signed a shoe deal with Converse.
Green expanded on his decision to switch to Converse in an interview with ESPN's Nick DePaula.
"I wouldn't just go to any brand just to be the headliner. It's not about that for me," Green explained. "The opportunity to stay within the Nike family, but then also, [be with] a brand that I like. I've always worn Chucks. It's a brand that I've always been comfortable with. Now, to have the opportunity to actually be a part of the brand, help build the brand up and bring some new life to the brand, that was an exciting thing to me."
Draymond Green’s ties to his college Michigan State University
Green played 145 games (67 starts) over four seasons for the Michigan State University Spartans, averaging 10.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.24 steals in 25.0 minutes per game. He finished as the school’s all-time leading rebounder.
Additionally, Green concluded his career as the school’s all-time leading rebounder (1,096). He was No. 2 on the list for blocks and steals. His three triple-doubles are second only to Magic Johnson at MSU.
After the Warriors won the 2015 NBA Championship, Green made a $3.1 million contribution to the Michigan State basketball program. The gift was the largest by a former MSU student-athlete, surpassing the $3 million donated by Magic Johnson.
With the donation, Michigan State’s weight room at the Breslin Center was named the Draymond Green Strength and Conditioning Center, and a portion of the gift was used to fund an endowment for the basketball program.
In December 2019, Michigan State men's basketball raised Draymond Green's No. 23 to the Breslin Center rafters.
Green addressed the crowd at the ceremony, saying that his goal growing up was just to play for the program.
"Man, I said I wasn't going to get emotional but it's ... this is special," he said. "I come here -- every time I walk in this arena, I look up there. And now I walk in here, and I'll see my name up there."
A glimpse into Draymond Green’s personal life
Green purchased a $9.6M mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles. The sprawling Georgian Colonial was built in 2019 and features plenty of space for Green and his family.
Green’s son, Draymond Jr., prefers to rebound for Warriors star Steph Curry when he stops by the practice facility at Chase Center.
"I understand," Green elaborated in a video conference with reporters. "You don't gotta do that much work rebounding for Steph as you gotta do rebounding for me, so I get it. I always tell him, 'You a smart kid, man.'”
