OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — If you're requesting early check-in or searching for NCAA Tournament hotel deals, Draymond Green's your guy.

At least for a day this week, that is.

The Golden State Warriors star has a basketball side gig going: On Thursday, he will work as a concierge fielding calls at San Francisco's HotelTonight , speaking directly to customers when they call to book rooms or inquire about last-minute availabilities or make special requests in NCAA Tournament cities.

"As an athlete, I'm constantly traveling and booking last-minute hotels," Green said in a statement. "I'm excited to bring this unique expertise to the digital concierge for the day and learn more about the inner workings of a tech company, especially one I use so much!"

Serving as a digital concierge for part of the afternoon, the All-Star forward will job shadow HotelTonight co-founder and CEO Sam Shank and his executive team.

"Fans will get a thrill having Draymond answer their requests — I'm pretty sure our staff will also learn a thing or two," Shank said. "I hope he's nice to the Cleveland fans who are checking in."

Green and the NBA-leading Warriors (55-14) were set to play at Oklahoma City on Monday night, then Dallas on Tuesday night before returning to the Bay Area to host Sacramento on Friday and Memphis on Sunday at Oracle Arena.
