Report: Draymond Green could be put on market as ‘trade bait’ if Warriors keep struggling

The Golden State Warriors are off to an even start this season.

A trade market could reportedly open up for three-time All-Star Draymond Green should the Warriors keep struggling.

“I’ll say this,” Chris Haynes said on the Posted Up podcast. “When Draymond comes back, if they don’t fare well, we could see a scenario play out where Draymond will be put out on the market for trade bait. We could see that. The way this franchise is going. I know a team that would — oh my goodness — I know a team that would be salivating if that was the case.”

Green, 30, is a huge engine in the Warriors’ organization.

The stalwart has played in Golden State his entire career. The Warriors drafted him with the No. 35 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

However, it appears Green’s best days with the Warriors may be behind him. The Warriors went to five straight NBA Finals from 2015 to 2019. They won three championships in that span.

Since then, much of the championship core has moved on or retired from the NBA.

Existing stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are getting older. Not to mention, Thompson is out for the entire 2020-21 campaign due to an Achilles injury.

Green has career averages of 9.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
