The incident got worse after a video of their altercation was leaked to the public, which stirred a lot of backlash from the fans and the entire NBA community. 

Draymond finally addressed the incident with Jordan Poole

"There's a huge embarrassment that comes from (the video) not only for myself ... but the embarrassment that Jordan has to deal with ... and also Jordan's family."

Green was hoping to get paid big time because of his contributions to the team over all these years, but his recent actions against his teammate now jeopardize that potential deal.
