Draymond Green faces assault charges in Michigan


Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was arrested Sunday on assault charges in East Lansing, Michigan.

Green was arrested at 2:28 a.m. ET Sunday and is scheduled for arraignment on July 20. No other details of the arrest were immediately available.

In a statement, the Warriors said they are "aware of news" involving Green.

"At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation," the team said.

If convicted, Green would face a maximum of 93 days in jail and a fine of $500.

Green, 26, appeared in 81 games for the Warriors last season and started 23 games in Golden State's playoff run to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. He missed Game 5 of the Finals for an accumulation of flagrant fouls throughout the postseason.

He played four seasons for Michigan State under coach Tom Izzo. Green is set to join Team USA in August at the Rio Olympics.
