Why would Draymond Green like to sign for the Spurs?
Green has been in Steph Curry and Karl Thompson’s shadow when it came to money, he earned enough, but it was always less than the two of them. Moving to the Spurs has a lot of reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is money. He’s 33 now, and it’s time he gets an expensive contract and earns as much as he can.
Green has four championships to his name, and Spurs don’t have a title-winning squad on paper. This is a great opportunity for Draymond to show that he’s actually worth the money. The power forward would also love to play alongside Popovich and Wembanyama. It’s a chance to do the unthinkable with the duo and take the Spurs as close to the title as possible.
Can the Spurs sign Draymond Green?
Spurs have enough balance in their salary cap; it’s projected that they can spend somewhere around $37.4M in salaries. They have great young players on their squad and with the spending freedom they have, they would like to get a veteran who can mentor their lads. Draymond Green looks like a perfect fit for the Spurs, and spending on a fully proven star might not bother them at all.
Draymond Green is yet to choose his destination, but all the factors indicate that the San Antonio Spurs might be his next destination. We’ll keep you updated about the trade.
