Veteran forward JaMychal Green is completing a contract buyout with the Oklahoma City Thunder and plans to sign with the Golden State Warriors upon clearing waivers, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Green was traded to the Thunder from the Denver Nuggets on draft night, but Thunder general manager Sam Presti told reporters he would try to find a new team for Green that would be a better fit.
Green’s arrival in Golden State would give the Warriors a stretch-four and floor-spacer who will fill the voids left by Nemanja Bjelica and Otto Porter Jr. He could also see minutes at center in some small-ball lineups.
Green averaged 6.4 points on 48 percent shooting and 4.2 rebounds in 16 minutes per game for the Nuggets last season.
