Green dared Durant to leave Warriors in free agency

Draymond Green dared Kevin Durant to leave the Warriors as a free agent.

Draymond Green has never been reluctant and assuredly never afraid to express himself.

And while it’s been widely reported Green called Golden State Warriors teammate (for the rest of this season, anyway) Kevin Durant a “bitch” several times during their recent spat, Green took it to an even higher level, according to a report.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo writes Green dared Durant to leave the two-time defending champion Warriors, which he can do July 1 by declining a player option.

Per Haynes:

Green called Durant a “bitch” multiple times, sources said. In a summarized version, sources said Green shouted, “You’re a bitch and you know you’re a bitch.” The rhetoric, sources said, continued even when Kerr attempted to direct the team’s attention to his whiteboard.

But what ultimately led to Green’s suspension, sources said, was a remark in which he dared Durant to bolt in free agency next summer. Durant has a player option for the 2019-20 season, and the Warriors want their superteam intact for the opening of their new arena, the Chase Center, in San Francisco next season.

Green blurted to Durant something along the lines of, “We don’t need you. We won without you. Leave,” sources said.

  1. the only reason they won without Durant is incredible luck. every team they played in 15 had injuries to key players. took them 6games to beat cavs without love and irving. not to mention their incredible choke job in 16. both green and curry can’t handle pressure.
