Draymond Green was asked to throw out the first pitch at Monday's Oakland A's game -- but respectfully declined ... this according to a rep for the A's.
With the Golden State Warriors star serving a 1 game suspension -- and unable to be in the arena for Game 5 of the NBA Finals -- Green said he would be attending the A's game, located right next to Oracle Arena.
TMZ Sports spoke with A's Director of Corporate Communications, Catherine Aker, who confirmed Green will be in the stadium ... but doesn't want to make a spectacle.
"We extended an invitation to Draymond to throw out the first pitch and he declined. He would prefer to keep a low profile while at our game."
Green will reportedly be allowed inside the arena to celebrate with his team if they win -- and it just so happens there is a tunnel which connects the Oakland Coliseum to Oracle Arena.
