For the Denver Nuggets past season, Green averaged 6.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game.

In June, Denver exchanged Green, a 2027 protected first-round pick

and two second-round picks for the draught rights to UCLA small forward Peyton Watson, who went to Oklahoma City with the 30th overall pick.

Green gives the Warriors' frontcourt extra depth after Nemanja Bjelica left for Turkish champion Fenerbache and Juan Toscano-Anderson left for free agency.

Andre Iguodala, who is still considering his options, might possibly depart from the team.

Despite this, the Warriors' frontcourt appears to be in good form thanks to the addition of Jonathan Kuminga to the bench and the return of starters Draymond Green and Kevon Looney.

All of that is on top of centre James Wiseman, who is making a comeback after missing the last four months due to a damaged meniscus.

Green is now a contender for the NBA champs in title defence. The 32-year-old had a poor three-point shooting season last year (26.6 percent),

but it has been two years since he made 39.9 percent of his three-point attempts in 2020–21.

Nevertheless, he was still productive overall last season for a Nuggets squad that made the playoffs, shooting 48.6 percent from the field.

In the end, Green should give the Dubs quality bench time as they make roster adjustments for the 2022–23 season.
