Green stated publicly he would like to return to the Warriors.

“I want to be a Warrior for the rest of my life,” Green said, via Mark Medina of Sportsnaut. “I want to ride out with the same dudes I rode in with. We put the work in to make that happen.”

But Green added that having Myers back would only assist in his decision on where he plays next.

“He means the world to me,” Green told Medina. “Working with him has been a complete honor. He’s great. He knows the business and I learn from him. To say that doesn’t matter, it’s a lie. Of course, it matters. But there’s a bunch of things to take into account. Yes, that is one of the things that matters. All right? But ultimately, I can’t hinge my whole decision on that. But f— right it matters.”

The Warriors are coming off a fairly uneven season, which ended with a second-round loss to the Lakers. Along the way, shooting guard Klay Thompson really struggled and Green sometimes appeared as if he’s clearly on the back nine of pro basketball.

Still, coach Steve Kerr indicated he felt the Warriors can be a major contender again, riding their longtime core of Stephen Curry, Thompson and Green.

“There’s still plenty in the tank there,” Kerr said, via Medina. “I thought they all had great seasons. It may not have ended on a high note. But all three guys are still high-level players. I still feel like this team has championship potential. We didn’t get there this year. But it’s not like this is the end of the rope.”

As for Myers, it remains to be seen what his next move may be. There’s a sense that he could decide to move on and try his hand at building up another franchise. The Wizards are believed to be among those closely monitoring the Myers situation, sources have told Hoops Wire.
