Pistons News: Detroit Believes Landing Draymond Green Is "Unrealistic," Per Report

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green will be one of the most coveted restricted free agents of the 2015 NBA free agency period, but the Detroit Pistons, for one, don't believe that the Warriors will let Green get away at any price on the market.

Via the Detroit Free Press:

A person with firsthand knowledge of the Pistons' off-season plans said Green is not a priority because it is expected that the Warriors, playing in the NBA Finals this week and moving into a new arena soon, would match any offer sheet for arguably the team's second-best player.

The person, not publicly authorized to discuss the team's plans, said the Pistons did not want to tie up cap space for 72 hours -- the time allotted the Warriors to match any offer -- when more easily obtainabke free agents could be available.

Also, the word around the league is that Green, 25, has grown to realize he's part of something special in the Bay Area and considering his leadership role, he's committed to the Warriors -- despite sentiments for his home state.

If Greg Monroe skips town as many believe he will, the Pistons will have an estimated $26 million in cap space to play with come July 1st.
