Draymond Green ‘beats’ Jordan Poole at Warriors practice A recent report by Shams Charania and Anthony Slater of The Athletic reported that the Golden State Warriors had a physical altercation between Draymond Green and Jordan Poole.
Green allegedly “beat” Poole before the two were separated. The Warriors have reportedly stopped training, and while Charania and Slater say Poole and Green have been known to “continue to talk to each other”, team managers believe a line has been crossed this season.
There has been a lot of talk lately about the Warriors’ next contract decision with their eligible players. The feeling in the team is that Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins will not move.
The controversy may not have anything to do with a contract dispute or anything related to the expansion issue, but it could be an issue on the minds of players like Green and Poole, which could add to the pressure.
These fights are not what the team is looking for, but they are also not new to professional sports teams. They are usually fixed after a while, but that is exactly what will happen in this case. As mentioned in Slater and Charania’s article, more details will follow.
