Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green will be fined $50,000 for his comments regarding Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker, sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) August 9, 2020
Green was asked about the Suns' success in the bubble, as they're the only undefeated team since play began in Orlando, and he stated their good fortune is because of Booker. The 30-year-old then said Booker needs to leave the Suns so he can win games, which, in this case, is considered to be tampering.
If those comments were made by an analyst, it wouldn't draw much attention. Since Green still is playing, his comments were interpreted as tampering.
In 67 games this season, Booker is averaging 26.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 6.6 assists. He's been the Suns' best player.
In 2018, Booker signed a five-year, $158 extension to remain with Phoenix...so it would be odd for him to demand a trade at this point. However, anything is possible in the NBA.
