Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green will be making a lot more appearances on TNT after signing a multiyear contract with Turner Sports on Thursday.

While "Inside the NBA" features former NBA players Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith, the unique agreement for Green will see him join the show's group of analysts while still playing for the Warriors. According to a press release, Green will make "select appearances – a combination of remote contributions and, at times, in person – throughout the season."

"Draymond is an incredibly versatile talent, both on the court and in front of the camera," Turner Sports executive Tara August said in the release. "He’s a team player in every sense, while offering a distinct perspective that is highlighted by his keen basketball IQ, charismatic delivery and forthright, thoughtful opinions that include and extend beyond sports. We’re thrilled to more formally welcome him to the Turner Sports family."

Green is a three-time All-Star who was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2017. He's appeared as an analyst on "Inside the NBA" before and has playfully bickered with Barkley.

Barkley and Green have long battled with the Warriors player once saying he'd like to punch the Hall of Famer in the face. The two have since buried the hatchet.
