CALIFORNIA, USA — The Golden State Warriors have signed mainstay and defensive star Draymond Green to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced recently.

GSW, reigning NBA bridesmaids to Toronto after the Raptors’ conquest in 4-2, has opted to keep the 2016-17 Defensive Player Of The Year.

“We’re thrilled to retain Draymond long-term as we move forward and into Chase Center,” said Warriors President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Bob Myers.

The team though has not released the details of the agreement.

Green, 29, has earned five-straight All-Defensive Team honors and averages of 9.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.37 steals, 1.08 blocks and 28.1 minutes in 533 games for the Warriors.

He will add to the over seven seasons spent with the Warriors acting as one of the pillars for that tremendous run of success of the team being in the Finals.

“He’s played an enormous part in shaping our organization over the last seven years. His passion and knowledge for the game are indispensable to our team. As a multi-time NBA Champion he’s surpassed everyone’s expectations—except his own,” the team added.
