Draymond Green and Jordan Poole engaged in a scuffle at a Warriors’ practice earlier this week. Green initiated the argument until Poole shoved him and things escalated quickly. Not a second later Green went into a full punch that appeared to land cleanly on the face of Poole. It was a a truly aggressive move for a practice with your teammates. Green and Poole have been teammates for three years now and were heading into their fourth year together.
Rumors have been that the Warriors want to handle this in-house, but after the video has leaked the NBA may have no choice but to intervene into the situation.
There is some speculation that tensions had been growing after the trash talk between Poole and Green over getting a max contract extensions. It appears that the Warriors are willing to give Poole a max extension before and maybe even instead of giving one to Green, who has been with the Warriors for 10 years and is a 4-time NBA Champion, 4-time All Star, 7-time all defense team member, and a Defensive Player of the Year winner.
Green could face a suspension or fine or both from the Warriors and the NBA.
