Draymond Green got into it with another man on Sunday and assault charges were filed. Now, it turns out that other man was a Michigan State football player who is expected to drop charges.
Police originally said the incident involved Green and another man and that it was “basically an altercation between a couple of guys.” Then word came out that Green had slapped the guy after being provoked.
Now Tony Garcia of MLive.com has new information that sheds light on who the other man was and that shows the beef between the two will likely end without any actions being taken against Green that will affect him next season.
As we figured earlier in the day, this appears to be an incident that will blow over quickly.
More importantly for Green and the Golden State Warriors, it appears he won’t have to deal with any long-term issues of a legal nature.
On a different note, this incident highlights the fact that Green really does need to grow up. His actions in the 2016 NBA Finals against LeBron James (watch here) could have cost the Warriors the title, and now he’s getting into it with a college kid who appears to have gotten his goat.
