Draymond Green opted to decline his player option with the Golden State Warriors, making him an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Although Green is getting up there in age, he still brings tenacity like no other. Additionally, his facilitating skills make him a unique option for most teams.
Since his decision, many have speculated where he could sign. The Phoenix Suns seem like a great option right now, but fans are buzzing about the possibility of him joining the Los Angeles Lakers.
Well, the Lakers hype is now in full swing after Draymond Green and LeBron James were spotted vacationing together in France.
Bleacher Report shares an image of the two chilling out at a restaurant. Green has a cigar in hand while James sits next to his wife, Savannah.

I mean, it looks like a great time. The sun is out, the restaurant seems to have a great atmosphere, and I’m sure the food is great too.
However, considering Draymond Green is a free agent, you have to wonder if he and LeBron James are talking about the offseason.
Due to the circumstances, NBA fans are even more convinced than before that Green may sign with the Lakers.
I think that opt-out told us all we need to know

Yeah, but this time it’s different for obvious reasons.
This means nothing they do this every offseason

Even if LeBron and Draymond hang out every offseason, seeing them together now is going to stir the rumor mill.
We’re still a bit of ways before knowing where Green will play next season. The NBA Draft kicks off on Thursday, June 22. The free agency period begins just eight days later.
With that said, keep an eye on Draymond Green, as he should have plenty of intrigue from around the league. That includes the possibility of him re-signing with the Warriors as well.
