Report: Draymond Green plans to appeal $120K fine from Warriors


Programming note: Watch Thursday night's Warriors-Rockets game streaming live at 5 p.m. PT on the MyTeams app.

The Warriors suspended Draymond Green for one game Tuesday and fined him just over $120,000.

The three-time All-Star is planning on appealing the fine with help from the NBPA, a source told The Undefeated's Marc Spears.

As ESPN's Zach Lowe notes:

Late Tuesday night, Marcus Thompson of The Athletic reported the following:

Green was surprised by the heavy-handedness. A fine was expected. Green had just come back from injury, giving him a rest day for Tuesday’s game against Atlanta and a private fine would have been an acceptable rebuke of his behavior. He was fined a few thousand dollars when he went after Kerr in the locker room in Oklahoma City in 2016. He didn’t think this incident was nearly as bad, so the punishment being drastically worse was shocking.

Draymond wants his money back (or wants to keep it), and this story certainly has more layers to come.
