To the surprise of, well, absolutely no one, Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors was officially announced as the latest client of Klutch Sports Group on Wednesday.
“Klutch is a cutting-edge company, it’s a pure environment, and I’ve grown to know (agent) Rich (Paul) over the years,” Green told Marc Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated. “We’ve become very close. When you really take a step back and actually study what is going on, he checks every box that a player would want in an agent. So, why not? Some are afraid of what people will think or what will be said. That’s not the case for me.”
Green also made it a point to stress Paul client — and good friend — LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, did not attempt to lure him to Klutch.
“It’s impossible to say LeBron played no part in me joining Klutch, simply because he has been Klutch since the beginning,” Green said. “He’s essentially a founding partner. I’ve already had a relationship with LeBron for years, so it’s always good to be able to do business with family that’s going about their business in the right fashion and getting things done.
“But as far as recruiting me — no, LeBron didn’t recruit me at all.”
Green joins other Klutch clients, in addition to James, such as Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and Eric Bledsoe.
