Green Wants To Be Involved in Roster Changes
When the Warriors season ended, a lot of questions arose regarding their roster moving forward. As coach Steve Kerr once discussed, one of their championship-winning strengths was the collection of veterans they had on their bench.
This past season majority of their players were far younger than their stars and very much inexperienced. Following that, Green stated that he expected to be involved in the upcoming roster moves for the team.
“I expect to be extremely involved. That’s just the way it’s gotta be,” Green said to a group of reporters through video conference via Yahoo Sports.
“I definitely expect to be extremely involved. You have to dive in. Looking back on this year, I think there were a lot of successes that came out of this year, but we did not win a championship. So you have to go back to the drawing board and try to figure it out.”
