Draymond Green has been accused of forcing a move to LA to link up with his friend and business partner, LeBron James after a video of him punching Jordan Poole surfaced on the internet.
The 32-year-old who has two years left on his contract is looking for a new five-year deal worth $164.2 million with the Warriors.
Draymond Green signed a four-year, $100 million extension with the Warriors ahead of the 2019-20 season. He’s on the books for $25.8 million in 2022-23 and he has a player option worth $27.6 million in 2023-24.
But his negotiation with the Warriors not going as planned as he is not deemed worthy of what he is requesting from the current NBA champions.
And since, he has been on the record talking about taking his talent to join his business partner and fellow Klutch Sports Group athlete, LeBron James.
Well, looks like he could be getting his wish or forcing the move after he sucker punched Poole according to Trae Young.
“Draymond is tryna get to LA. Damn!,” said Trae Young via his Twitter page.

It will be interesting to see what punishment the Warriors will hand to Green after the video of him aggressively hitting his teammate surfaced.
Also, it would be nice to see the package the Los Angeles Lakers will offer the Warriors to force their hands into letting Green go.
