Power Forward for the Golden State Warriors, Draymond Green, signed an $85 million dollar contract for the next five years. This is a huge pay-raise from the 3.6 million dollars he made in the first 3 years of his career. The deal makes Green one of the highest paid Warriors players. However, he says he does not play for the money and that he would even play for free. Green also said that the feeling of winning the NBA championship was much greater than that of signing a multi-million dollar contract.
During the press conference, Green took the time to thank his mom for playing a huge role in his success. He said his mom taught him to work as hard as he does and that her expression, “men that don’t work, don’t eat,” has helped him get to where he is today.
Watch Draymond Green talk about what it means to stay with the Warriors.
