Draymond Green donates $3.1 million to alma mater

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Golden State Warriors standout Draymond Green is donating $3.1 million to Michigan State in support of its men's basketball program.

Green played for the Spartans and graduated in 2012. His donation, which is pending approval from the Board of Trustees, is the largest single gift to Michigan State athletics from a former Spartans athlete.

A strength and conditioning facility at the Breslin Center will be named in Green's honor, part of a renovation to Michigan State's home arena.

Green helped the Warriors to the NBA championship last season and then signed an $82 million, five-year contract to stay with Golden State.
