Draymond Green entered the NBA back in 2012 as the 35th overall pick of the draft. Since then, he’s won three titles and made $84,640,743 through his NBA contracts, per Spotrac.
The Golden State Warriors signed Green to a three-year, $2.64 million rookie contract. The Michigan native made $850,000 during his rookie season while averaging 2.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game.
Green’s playing time increased in 2013-14 to 21.9 minutes a night. He averaged 6.2 points and 5.0 boards and made $875,500.
The 2014-15 season was when the Warriors’ dynasty began. Draymond Green made $915,243 and helped the Dubs win the title over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The power forward’s solid play on both sides of the floor in his first three years set him up to sign a lucrative rookie-scale extension.
In the summer of 2015, the Warriors signed Green to a five-year, $82 million contract. The former Michigan State Spartan made $14,260,870 during the 2015-16 season. That’s the campaign when the Warriors won a record 73 games but lost to the Cavs in the Finals after blowing a 3-1 series lead.
The following season, the Warriors had Kevin Durant in the lineup, so games were almost too easy for the club to win. Draymond Green was making $15,330,435 that season. The Dubs wound up winning the Finals, with Durant capturing Finals MVP.
In 2017-18, Draymond Green was making $16,400,000. He put up 11.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.3 assists during the regular season. The Warriors won the championship again over LeBron James and the Cavs. Golden State now had three rings in four years.
During the 2018-19 campaign, Draymond Green made $17,469,565 and averaged 7.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.9 assists. However, he verbally attacked Durant during a game against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center and the season was never the same after that.
Even though the Warriors got back to the Finals, there was a sense that KD was leaving the team in free agency. The superstar forward wound up tearing his Achilles in Game 5 of the 2019 Finals after initially suffering a calf injury against the Houston Rockets in the second round. Klay Thompson also tore his left ACL in Game 6 and the Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors.
After Durant joined the Brooklyn Nets via a sign-and-trade deal in the summer of 2019, the Warriors signed Draymond Green to a four-year, $100 million extension. He reportedly has nearly $50 million in “advance payments” in his new contract.
Green was scheduled to make $18,539,130 in 2019-20 before the season was suspended due to COVID-19. His new contract kicks in during the 2020-21 campaign.
