Skip Bayless says Warriors should trade Draymond Green
Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is no stranger to the spotlight. The Warriors have been a tremendous dynasty, with Green playing a huge part in that success. But Wednesday on FS1’s “Undisputed,” Skip Bayless provided a harsh take on the recent troubling situation with Kevin Durant, which featured a one-game suspension for the brash forward.
“Draymond Green officially has become more trouble than he’s worth. You have to trade him now.”
Although this seems a bit drastic, Bayless went on to say that this move might be the best idea for this season.
“Salvage this year, get the team’s mind right,” Bayless said. “If I’m running this organization this thing has just blown up enough, I’m done with Draymond Green.”
Green has been the team’s emotional leader throughout the years. Of course, Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson carry the heavier load on offense, but Draymond has been the glue that holds the Warriors together over the years.
The peace on and off the court seems to be compromised until some kind discussion between the two stars allows them to put their differences aside and squash their obvious discrepancies. Green has to overcome the fact that he was suspended and deal with the “public humiliation,” as Bayless stated. While things seem to be trending in the direction of Durant parting ways with the team, the goal of attaining another championship ought to be the main focus for the team right now.
Bayless is not afraid of providing a hot take, but this suggestion of trading Green can not sit well with any Warriors fans right now, especially with Durant’s presumed departure.
