Draymond once joked about new Warrior Wanamaker's head size

Brad Wanamaker came to an agreement with the Warriors in free agency on Saturday, a source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area, but he might have an awkward first practice coming with potential new teammate Draymond Green.

During the NBA's bubble restart in Orlando, Fla., Draymond joked about the size of the former Boston Celtics guard's head while going through highlights of an Aug. 7 win over the Toronto Raptors.

"Brad Wanamaker got the biggest head in the NBA by far," Green quipped on TNT (h/t Chris Montano). "It don't even fit his body. His head don't fit his body."

Green clearly was making a joke, and given how much closer players from across the league have become in recent years, it's hard to imagine the two don't have some sort of off-the-court relationship.

Wanamaker could be an important addition to the Warriors' bench this season, as a solid defender and the NBA's most accurate free-throw shooter, going 92.6 percent from the line last season. He's 6-foot-3 and mostly will play the point, so there still are plenty of wings available the Warriors could pursue to help minimize the loss of Klay Thompson following his Achilles injury.

This shouldn't be the final move from this front office, but could be an under-the-radar deal that shows its importance in the postseason or if injuries once again befall the roster like they did in 2019-20.
