Hey Dieter: Should the Warriors trade Draymond Green this summer?

Hey Dieter: Should the Warriors trade Draymond Green this summer?

Hey, Dieter is a weekly wrap-up of the questions that I receive via email, Twitter, radio call-ins, and my morning rooms on the Locker Room app.

Also, questions I receive in more analog ways. What a concept!

If you want to get in on this action, you can email me at dkurtenbach@bayareanewsgroup.com, tweet me @dieter, text me at 510.479.0932, or yell at me on the street.

A warning: Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent and some names remain the same to shame the ridiculous.

Is it time to trade Draymond Green? — Brad via email

» I feel like we have this conversation once a quarter, but let’s rehash it:

While trading Green feels sacrosanct, I don’t think it’s a subject that cannot be broached.

Ultimately, I don’t think there’s much of a trade market for him, seeing as he has three years and roughly $75 million remaining on his contract, and I know that no one is going to come in with a value that’s truly compensatory to the Dubs.

In Green, the Warriors have arguably the best defender in the NBA and the point guard of their offense (he averaged the same number of assists per game as Chris Paul). Of the three things teams need to win the postseason, Green gives the Warriors two — a defensive anchor and an operator on offense.

There’s a zero percent chance they could land a player like that in a trade for Green.

Is Green’s shot busted? Yep.

Was his missed floater at the end of the play-in game against Memphis an encapsulation of a serious issue? No doubt.
