Warriors’ Draymond Green reveals why he signed shoe deal with Converse


Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green has officially signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar shoe deal with Converse, according to Nick DePaula of ESPN.

Green joins Phoenix Suns small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. as another endorser with Converse. The Warriors’ do-it-all swingman says staying within the Nike family was a big reason why he decided to sign with Converse:

“I wouldn’t just go to any brand just to be the headliner. It’s not about that for me,” Green said. “The opportunity to stay within the Nike family, but then also, [be with] a brand that I like. I’ve always worn Chucks. It’s a brand that I’ve always been comfortable with. Now, to have the opportunity to actually be a part of the brand, help build the brand up and bring some new life to the brand, that was an exciting thing to me.”

Green is one of the more recognizable players in the NBA. He’s a three-time champion, three-time All-Star and former Defensive Player of the Year.

Draymond has appeared in 43 games for the Warriors this season. He’s averaging 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6.2 assists while shooting 38.9 percent from the field, 27.9 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free-throw line.

The Warriors have the worst record in the NBA. However, they should be playoff contenders again next season once Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Green all play together. They also have a high lottery-caliber player ready to join them as well, assuming the team keeps the pick and doesn’t trade it as part of a package to obtain another superstar.
