OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Draymond Green is coming back to the Golden State Warriors.
Green announced on Bleacher Report's Uninterrupted website Wednesday night he has agreed to a five-year deal with the Warriors. A person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press the contract is worth about $85 million.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because terms have not been disclosed. Yahoo Sports first reported the agreement.
Green was a restricted free agent, meaning the NBA champion Warriors could match any offer he received. But Golden State always expected to pay whatever salary he commanded, even if that meant dipping into the league's luxury tax, which it will almost surely do now.
