A Yahoo Sports report surfaced on Tuesday claiming that Draymond Green "has significant interest" in pursuing a contract from his hometown Detroit Pistons this summer.
Green, a Sagninaw native, will be a restricted free agent on July 1 and can sign with any team.
The Warriors, however, get the final say as they would have 72 hours to either match the offer sheet, or let him go.
Green, who spent the majority of the All-Star break in Michigan (he also went to Florida for a couple of days), responded to Adrian Wojnarowski's report Tuesday evening.
"Yeah, it was all over my Twitter today," Green said on KNBR 680-AM. "All of a sudden all this stuff popping up ... and the story from Woj and I'm like "Whoa, where did this come from? So yeah, I saw it today...
"It's cool just to see those things. Stuff like that amazes me. I've never really been given anything in my career. I've always had to work for everything that I got. So I've never really been in that spotlight ... so when things like that happen it catches me by surprise. So I was surprised and just amazed to see that next to my name."
Golden State selected Green with the fifth pick of the second round (35th overall) in 2012.
As a rookie, Draymond averaged 2.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks over 13.4 minutes per game. He made 14 3-pointers.
In his second campaign, he averaged 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks over 21.9 minutes per game. He made 55 3-pointers.
Through 51 games this year (all starts), the 24-year old is averaging 11.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocks over 32.0 minutes per game. He has already made 69 3-pointers.
Despite all of the attention surrounding his contract status, Green's approach remains the same.
"It don't change one bit," he declared. "I'm in a position right now where we're 42-9. I'm on a great team, great coaching staff, a great organization. And like I've said all along, I'd be doing myself a disservice to not enjoy what's going on right now. This is a special group that I'm playing with, and I think we can make something special things happen this year. So for me to sit and worry about, 'Oh, can I sign with the Pistons? Or can I do this or do that,' I'd be living wrong."
Green and his teammates are living well.
The Warriors boast the best record in the NBA, and Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson became the first backcourt mates to start the All-Star Game since Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe in 1975.
Additionally, Green and associate head coach Alvin Gentry "went to war" over posting photos of each other asleep on team flights.
"I've had so much fun this year with this team and playing with these guys," Green said. "I'm not going to sit and worry about what's gonna happen when July 1 comes around. I'm gonna worry about now and that's trying to get better each and every day, and try to pursue a championship...
"You're talking about a life-changing decision. It's definitely going to be a tough decision ... all that stuff will take care of itself."
