Re­port: Green’s FaceTime chat caught NCAA’s at­ten­tion

The Arizona Republic - - SPORTS -

A FaceTime chat a cou­ple years ago in­volv­ing Dray­mond Green and a star Michi­gan State re­cruit re­port­edly caught the at­ten­tion of the NCAA.

The Detroit Free Press re­ported Fri­day that Green used FaceTime to talk to Miles Bridges from the Golden State locker room af­ter the War­riors won the West­ern Con­fer­ence in 2015, and there was a tweet from Bridges with a photo from the con­ver­sa­tion. Bridges later signed with the Spar­tans.

The NCAA con­tacted Michi­gan State in 2016 about an SB Na­tion story that had Bridges’ tweet em­bed­ded.

Green was a star for the Spar­tans be­fore go­ing on to his suc­cess­ful NBA ca­reer.

The Free Press re­ports that the NCAA de­ter­mined Michi­gan State’s coach­ing staff did not di­rect Green to call Bridges. The news­pa­per re­ported Fri­day on a hand­ful of mi­nor vi­o­la­tions re­cently by Michi­gan State teams, all of which were deemed sec­ondary/Level III in­frac­tions.
