Golden State Warriors veteran Draymond Green is declining his $27.5 million player option for the 2023-24 season and will enter unrestricted free agency, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

“We will continue to talk to Golden State and explore all options,” Green’s agent Rich Paul said via ESPN. Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 33-year-old has spent his entire 11-season career with the Warriors. While the move means that could change, the team is working hard to sign Green to a new deal, according to Wojnarowski and a report from ESPN’s Marc Spears on NBA Today.

The striker will be able to consider possibilities with his longtime team, sign and trade or free agency.

Last season, Green averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists in 73 games. He shot 52.7% from the field and 30.5% from 3.
