NBA star Draymond Green has been offered $10 million by Jake Paul to get into the boxing ring.
The 32-year-old golden state warrior was involved in an altercation with teammate Jordan Poole in practice this week.
Green and Poole reportedly pushed and shoved each other before things escalated at the Warriors’ practice facility.
A video obtained by TMZ appears to show four-time NBA champion Green Flooring Poole with a punch.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Oct. 6 that Poole was not injured after the incident and ended his training.
Now boxer-turned YouTuber Paul has meddled in the saga – and offered Green big bucks to try his hand at boxing.
The problem child is willing to put together remarkable numbers to achieve this.
Paul tweeted: “I need to get Draymond Green in the boxing ring.
“Draymond, I have $10 million for you to step in the ring on the next Most Valuable Promotions pay-per-view. Who are you looking for?”
Jake has moved into boxing promotion and recently brokered the superfight between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano at MSG.
And he has thrown the name of ex-NBA star Deron Williams in the hat as a possible opponent for Green.
Williams fought Tyron Woodley on Paul’s undercard last year and beat NFL running back Frank Gore.
Paul tweeted: “Draymond Green vs Deron Williams. Who wins?
But he locked out the 6ft6, 230lbs forward facing him in the square circle and said he would let him “fall asleep”.
Jake continued, “To be clear, the JP that Draymond slept in is Jordan Pool. This JP would sleep Draymond in one round.”
Paul was recently challenged by Chris Eubank Jr. to replace Conor Benn after their grudge match was scrapped.
The Cleveland native is currently preparing for a duel with the UFC veteran Anderson Silva on October 29 in Arizona.
Meanwhile, Warriors general manager Bob Myers confirmed that Green had apologized to Poole and his teammates after the incident.
Myers said, “These things happen. Nobody likes it, we don’t condone it, but it happens.
“Draymond has apologized to the team. Jordan was in the room.
“As for any suspension, punishment or fine, we will deal with it internally.”
