There is definitely no love lost between Jordan Poole and Draymond Green.
Jordan Poole and Draymond Green have no love lost between them, and it seems like that will continue in the future.
Even future hall-of-fame player Chris Paul has been traded twice this offseason, as he was first sent from Phoenix to the Washington Wizards and then dealt to the Golden State Warriors for Poole.
This came as a surprise, as Poole had signed a four-year, up to $140 million deal just last year and had spent his entire four-year career with Golden State since being the 28th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Following the trade, Poole quickly unfollowed Green on Instagram, which some Twitter accounts noticed.

This might be due to a viral video in which Green sucker-punched Poole during practice before the start of the 2022-23 season, which disrupted the Warriors’ championship-winning momentum and led them to finish as the sixth seed in the Western Conference.
However, Poole will now have an opportunity to showcase his full abilities with the Wizards, especially after averaging 20.4 points per contest and playing in every game this past season, including the playoffs.
