NBA rumors: Draymond Green dared Kevin Durant to leave in free agency


Multiple stories have come out the last three days with snippets of what Draymond Green reportedly said to Kevin Durant on the bench Monday.

Now, with the Warriors trying to put the drama behind them, a new story from Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reveals that Green dared Durant to leave the team in free agency next summer.

“We don’t need you. We won without you. Leave," Green said to Durant while in the huddle following the end of regulation against the Clippers, according to Haynes.


Green met with reporters Thursday in Houston and said he had spoken with Durant and that they would attempt to move forward. After that night’s 107-86 loss to the Rockets, Durant was asked about his relationship with Green and wanted no part of the question, telling a reporter "Don't ask me about that again."

Durant can opt out of his contract at the end of the season, and most observers expect him to do so. Whether he re-signs with the Warriors or bolts for a new experience is a dark cloud hanging over the team right now.

It appears Green is poking that cloud, looking for rain.
