San Francisco – Golden State Warriors striker Draymond Green He publicly apologized on Saturday and announced that he would be away from the team for a few days after an argument between him and his teammate. Jordan Paul.
1, Greene said, “I was wrong in my actions.” He added that he apologized to Paul and Paul’s family.
“There is a great embarrassment that comes with it [this]Green said, “Not only for me, because I was the one who committed the act…but the embarrassment that Jordan has to deal with that this team has to deal with, this organization has to deal with. But also Jordan’s family. His family watched this video.” His mother, his father watched this video. If my mother watched this video, I know how my mother would feel.”
Green initially apologized to Paul and the team on Thursday before practice, then immediately left the facilities and went home. General Manager Bob Myers said he doesn’t expect Green to miss a game, and coach Steve Kerr said Green will be back with the team for practice on Saturday. But a leaked video of the incident between Green and Paul caused Green to take a different path.
The Warriors are planning to take “all possible legal measures” to find the source of the leak, sources told ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne. Sources told ESPN that Golden State has also consulted with the league about steps to determine how the video will appear.
Myers said the feud stemmed from informal talk of a trash practice that escalated and had nothing to do with the impending contract negotiations with Green and Poole.
Paul is eligible for a novice extension, and his representative is in the process of negotiating with the Warriors. The two sides are using the October 17 deadline as an impetus to reach a new agreement.
Green has a player option waiting at the end of this season. If not captured, Green will become a restricted free agent in 2024. Green has stated publicly that he does not believe he and the Warriors will reach a deal this year.
