• Draymond Green is set to return anytime soon
  • The Warriors could trade Green if their NBA season falters
  • An unnamed team is ready to take Green in

The Golden State Warriors are not exactly off to a hot start with some players out.

Most know that Klay Thompson will be missing his second-straight NBA season, later on, joined by Marquese Chriss who suffered a broken leg.

One player who could provide head coach Steve Kerr a boost is Draymond Green. However, that is also no assurance that the Dubs can unleash a better showing compared to the last NBA season.

Hence, rumors are floating around, some of which may happen.

In the eyes of NBA insider Chris Haynes, this is a possible scenario. he shared his take on the possibility of sending Green to another team on the Posted Up podcast.

“I’ll say this. If Draymond comes back and they don’t fare well, we could see a scenario where Draymond will be put out in the market for trade bait,” Haynes stated.

Though his hypothesis makes sense, he adds a juicy twist to it all. Haynes believes that if it does get to that, there is a team ready to cash-in. However, he did not reveal what franchise this was.

“And I know a team, oh my goodness, I know a team that would be salivating, if that was the case. I’m not going to mention it,” he stated.

Whether it happens or not, it may be too early to tell. As of this writing, the Dubs are 2-2 in the NBA Western Conference.

Though they may be a far shade from the smooth-running and deadly Warriors of the past, they are still slugging it out.

Furthermore, Green could be the spark that they need. Most know how he goes all out when he is on the floor, known to fire up his teammates during games.

Rather than speculate on his return, it may be best to consider his health. He appears to have healed from a right foot injury and could be playing soon. He has yet to see a single minute this 2020-21 season.

Green holds career averages of 9 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 5.0 assists. But most know that the 30-year-old can contribute beyond that. That includes defense and his scrappy plays when he takes the floor.

For now, it would be best to take all these with a grain of salt. It is expected to attract varying opinions with Warriors fans likely to disapprove.
