Draymond Green is the "heartbeat" of the Warriors.
He averages 11.6 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocks per game for the team with the best record in the NBA.
The 25-year old also is fourth in the NBA in defensive real plus-minus.
Many analysts and pundits believe Green will receive "max" contract offers when he hits restricted free agency in July.
There are others who aren't so high on Green's services.
"He's one of those guys who's a product of the system," an anonymous scout told Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. "I'd be very uncomfortable paying him zillions of dollars. He is situationally [valuable]. He's got two great point guards, he gets a lot of surplus stuff from them. He's a good rebounder. He's a complementary guy. But he's going to get paid like a second or third option, probably."
If Green signs an offer sheet with another franchise this summer, the Warriors will have 72 hours to match the contract.
Warriors majority owner and CEO Joe Lacob said last month that Green "was born to be a Warrior. And we love him. I certainly think today as we look at our team, he’s part of our core and can’t imagine it being otherwise."
Head coach Steve Kerr said Green "is gonna be a part of this franchise for the next 8-10 years."
"I would be cautious, if I'm any team other than Golden State," the scout said. "I'm not sure his talents are totally transferable. He's just not that talented. He does the little things, he can guard, he's a winning player. What they like about him is his leadership; he's become the leader of that team. I'm not sure that's transferable."
Green has made 92 3-pointers this season after making 69 over his first two years in the league combined.
He is third on Golden State in minutes (32.2) and is one of two Warriors players to start all 62 games this season (Harrison Barnes).
