The Draymond Green civil case stemming from assault allegations last year has taken a completely new turn.
According to documents obtained by The Mercury News, Los Angeles Lakers president and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer Magic Johnson has been subpoenaed to testify as a witness in the case.
Authorities had originally dropped the misdemeanor assault charge against the Golden State Warriors’ All-Star after he agreed to pay a fine as part of a plea.
Though, that hasn’t stopped former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson from suing Green.
For his part, Johnson might be asked to cover in detail this tweet he sent following the incident.
Talked with my friend Draymond Green and he was very apologetic to the Warriors organization, fans and everyone involved.

Both Johnson and Green graduated from Michigan State. The two are said to hold a friendly relationship outside of the basketball world. And Johnson himself, despite being the Lakers’ president, is close to the Warriors’ organization itself.
