MSU great Draymond Green to be sued in California for alleged assault

EAST LANSING, MICH. - A California attorney announced on Twitter today that she plans to file a lawsuit against former Michigan State star and current Golden State Warriors All-Star Draymond Green on Tuesday.

Lisa Bloom posted a news released from her law firm that said the suit is "alleging assault, battery and related claims based on his alleged acts of violence against a young man and woman."

The release said the unnamed man and woman would speak for the first time about the lawsuit at noon Eastern time on Tuesday. There is no word on when the incident happened, whether the police were involved or if an arrest was made.

Bloom said the accusers "demand accountability and an apology from Mr. Green, who has often been called a bully both on and off the basketball court."

Green, just named the NBA defensive player of the year and a two-time champion, was arrested in July 2016 in East Lansing in his role in an assault against former MSU football player Jermaine Edmondson. Green reached a plea deal in that case and avoided jail time just in time to participate in the Rio Olympics last summer.

Green graduated from Saginaw High before starring at MSU, earning All-America status his senior season in 2012.
