The Golden State Warriors suffered a massive disappointment in the play-in tournament, losing back-to-back heartbreakers against the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies. That doesn't mean Draymond Green won't be a key part of the playoff action.

Green will be returning to TNT to provide analyst work once again after making his debut last year. The New York Times' Marc Stein says the Warriors star will be starting his side hustle up again on Monday.

The 31-year-old is tailor-made for an announcing gig. He's not only extremely opinionated and never afraid to say controversial things but also smart as hell with an ability to explain the game in interesting ways. So many talking heads are just loudmouths who say dumb stuff for engagement, but Green is a loudmouth who's also an excellent analyst when it comes to breaking down the game. Plus, as a current player, he can offer keen insight on locker room dynamics and all that kind of stuff.

Green would obviously much rather be playing in the first round of these playoffs rather than watching them. If all goes well for the Warriors, next season he'll actually be participating in the first round and perhaps beyond.

But getting Green in the booth again is good news for playoff coverage. He has already been offering up plenty of takes on Twitter during games, and now we'll get to hear him on television once again.
