Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has reached a plea deal that will erase his assault charges from earlier this month, according to a report from CBS Sports.
The incident took place two weeks ago at a restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan where Draymond Green struck a former Michigan State football player. The all-star forward will avoid his 93-day jail sentence by paying a $560 penalty which reduces his assault charge to civil infraction.
Per the plea deal, Green is not allowed to have any sort of contact with the victim Jermaine Edmondson Jr.
Green is currently a member of USA’s national basketball team that will be traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympics. In what will be Green’s first Olympics appearance, he will be joined by teammates Klay Thompson and the newly signed Kevin Durant.
While Steph Curry elected to sit out of the Olympic Games to rest his various injuries, it will be interesting to see three of the Warriors stars playing together competitively before the NBA season begins.
