Andrew Bogut said how Drymond Green went to Europe if it were not for the intervention of Steve Kerr as head coach.
One of the main reasons Warriors have achieved so much in the last few years is Drummond Green. He is a defensive spear and is often called the heart and soul of the team.
In his first two years in the league, Head Coach Mark Jackson started him only 13 times. Draymond is like a Swiss Army knife for the Warriors. Like any other tool, there should be a person who knows how to make it.

Drymond was played at 3 under Jackson, something that doesn’t really suit him well. He averaged 4.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 18 games per minute. He was about to end his contract, and did not look like he would get a renewal in the NBA.
Andrew Bogut believes Draymond Green will be foreign, if not for Steve Kerr
Andrew Bogut recently went on air with 95.7 The Game, where he talked about his former Warriors teammates. From what he saw, Drymond was no longer in the league under Mark Jackson. However, things changed completely as soon as Steve Kerr joined as head coach.
“He spent his rookie years struggling to learn about his role within the NBA and the team. Once he got that chance from Steve, it all changed. He is the first person to tell you, he was almost going to Europe by a plane the way he was being played earlier in his career. “
Andrew Bogut says that Steve Kerr takes credit for saving Drummond from early in his career.https://t.co/lACYOZiTO0 pic.twitter.com/JduabsAnRx
