Green has been a Warrior since entering the league and is clearly happy to stay, especially since he believes the team has more years of championship contention to come. The 29-year-old averaged 7.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game last season, but his usage figures to improve next season with Kevin Durant’s departure and Klay Thompson’s injury. He’s regarded as the emotional heart and soul of the Warriors, and the team knew they had to keep him.
