Draymond Green has been suspended by the NBA–again.

This time, there is no clear ending to the Golden State Warriors forward’s suspension, as the league is looking to make a statement by holding Green out from game action “indefinitely.”

The Athletic’s Sam Amick joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Thursday morning to share what he is hearing about Green’s latest suspension, predict how long the Warriors will be without its starting power forward, and much more.

Plus, what do the Sacramento Kings need to do in order to make the leap from a good team to an NBA Finals contender?
