He also won Defensive Player of the Year!
Draymond Green won Defensive Player of the Year at the NBA Awards, as many supposed he would. He accepted the award while wearing shorts and a blazer. Let’s just take some time to appreciate him.
NOW that the National Basketball Association (NBA) Rookie Draft is over and done with and they know where they are heading to, top rookie picks Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and Jayson Tatum expressed their readiness to get to work and show what they are capable of doing on basketball’s biggest stage.

George is definitely being traded. Here is one potential option that could take place.
