SAN FRANCISCO JaMychal Green He was vacationing in Jamaica when his phone rang. He picked up his phone because, why not?

The other end of the line was Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr is the coach

“He said that he told me that.” [the Warriors] Green announced Monday at his introductory news conference that they were interested and wanted him to be here.

Green was shocked when the call came. Green was already planning to join another team. Green was influenced by Kerr's conversation.

Green stated that he had spoken to Green and could not say no after talking to him. “The organization and the work they have done over here, I would love to be part of it.”

Green picked up his phone and called Draymond GreenJaMychal's friend since eighth grade through AAU basketball. Draymond has always been a salesperson for Warriors and often calls prospective players to convince them to join Golden State.

While his call with JaMychal was not exactly a pitch for the company, it did help seal the deal.

JaMycal stated, “He was just thrilled.” “We each know what we have to offer, and we just had good conversations about everything. It was easy for me to come to him.”

Green views Draymond's role as a Warriors player as a guideline for how he would like to play with the Warriors.

Green stated, “Just come in to play hard.” “Be a good dog. Help Draymond with the dirty jobs. Do the dirty work — play defense. It's my feeling that if you come to this place and manage your business, it will set you up for success in life.

Green's match with the Warriors fills that void. Otto Porter Jr.'s departure. Green's first year as a member of the Denver Nuggets In the 2020-21 season, he spread his floor shooting 39.9% from three (a career 36.6 3-point shooting percentage). He rebounded well and provided a defender who could protect both the center and wings.

It is similar to what Porter and Nemanja Bjelica Last season, the Warriors received this donation.

Green's long distance shooting percentages dropped to 26.6 per cent last year. Green attributes this to a wrist injury that he suffered and said, “Towards the end of the season, I stopped shooting, period.”

Green stated that it's all about confidence and rest. “As long my reps are in this summer, it's all good. I had to struggle through some things last summer… it's going up.”

Green will not only be a floor-spreader but will also likely spend some time playing small-ball centers for Golden State. This is something Green feels comfortable with after having to play backup center. Nikola Jokic Denver, at times.

The Nuggets traded Green, and a first round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder To obtain the draft rights for No. Peyton Waston as the No. 30 pick and two picks in the second round. The Thunder however made it clear that they wanted to move Green elsewhere once the deal was completed.

Green had originally planned to play elsewhere but it turned into a match in Golden State.

Green said, “Coming to this place, you cannot settle, get contented or do anything.” “You are constantly improving and working here. This is what I need to be around. It's important to surround yourself with those who are able to lead. They have it all. Andre (Iguodala), being a leader, is just one example. Steph (Curry), Klay (Thompson), Draymond. “I look forward to playing alongside those guys.”
