The time Draymond Green '100 percent' thought the Warriors would trade him

The Warriors have a massively important game tonight in Houston.

But let's take a walk down memory lane to 2016.

You all remember what happened on Feb. 27 when the Warriors took on the Thunder in Oklahoma City:

-Draymond Green and Steve Kerr nearly got into a fight at halftime
-Steph Curry hit a game-winning 38-footer (his 12th 3-pointer of the night) with 0.6 seconds left in overtime

But we learned something new on Thursday, courtesy of Bleacher Report's Howard Beck (be sure to read the whole story).

The Warriors won that game in OKC, but as Beck writes:

"Green's mood was still foul, and he left the arena that day believing his days as a Warrior were numbered. He feared the relationship had been fractured, that the Warriors would choose Kerr over him. That he'd be traded.

One hundred percent," Green tells B/R. "Especially with the success that he was having as a coach. Like, you just don't get rid of that."

In his lowest moments, Green expressed his fears of being traded to both his mother and (Tom) Izzo. "We all thought Dray would have been traded" after the Oklahoma incident, (Mary) Babers-Green says."

That's...

... pretty crazy to think about.

According to Beck: "Team officials, including Myers and Kerr, say that was never even a discussion."

Draymond is under contract two more seasons -- $17,469,565 in 2018-19 and $18,539,130 in 2019-20.

OK. You can go back to being stressed and anxious about tonight's game vs the Rockets...

NBA rumors: Warriors' Steph Curry to return March 1 against Wizards

NBA rumors: Warriors' Steph Curry to return March 1 against Wizards

The guessing game finally is over.

Warriors supertar Steph Curry will make his return to game action this Sunday against the Washington Wizards, league sources told Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The two-time NBA MVP broke his left hand Oct. 30 against the Phoenix Suns.

He underwent surgery Nov. 1, and had a second procedure in early December to have pins removed.

The three-time NBA champion still is dealing with some nerve damage.

"I'm getting used to what a new normal is," Curry told reporters Saturday after practice. "It definitely feels different than then right but you try to get to a point to when you're actually playing basketball, you don't think about it.

"Whether it feels all the way the same or not, that really doesn't matter. it's just as long as I'm not worried about the things I have to do, the strength part of it and how it bounces back the next day after pushing it."

It's unclear if Curry will be on any sort of minutes restriction, or if he will play in every remaining game.
