Gerald Green looked great in his preseason debut for the Heat, scoring 12 points to go with five rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, one block, two steals and one turnover over 20 minutes.
Green could earn himself a nice role off Miami's bench this season, although he tends to struggle with consistency, so he's not much more than a deep league target for now. That being said, if/when Dwyane Wade or Luol Deng go down during the season, Green could immediately jump into the standard league equation. Oct 4 - 9:05 PM

Goran Dragic believes that Gerald Green will succeed in Miami.

"His ability to jump and shoot against anybody is going to be unbelievable, and on defense, he can improve a lot," Dragic said. "He’s long and athletic and he’s gonna listen to the coaches." Green won't be a reliable fantasy option while the Heat are at full strength, but he is going to be an interesting plug-and-play option every time Dwyane Wade sits. For now, Green is more of a deep league asset.

Gerald Green is excited to be playing alongside Goran Dragic again.

After the two spent time together with the Suns, Green is hoping to rekindle some of that magic in Miami. "I kind of really fed off Goran really [well]. I never had anybody to make me better like that," Green said. The swingman also added that he wants to prioritize making an impact on the defensive end after Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra challenged him to improve at that end of the floor.

Gerald Green said once he heard the Heat were interested in signing him, "it wasn't even about the money."

"Once I heard that Miami wanted to give me an opportunity to come here and play, it wasn’t even about the money," Green said after signing this month. "I’m trying to help this team get to where it’s capable of being and that’s winning the championship. I’ve never been there before, but I know this team has." Green signed for the minimum with the Heat, and he'll likely start off the year playing in a sixth man role behind Dwyane Wade. He'll be an interesting name to monitor in daily leagues on the days Wade is sidelined.
Jul 22 - 11:33 AM

The Heat have officially signed Gerald Green to a one-year, $1.4 million deal.

Green will join a crowded wing rotation in Miami, so it's hard to get excited about him in fantasy leagues. He averaged 11.9 points in just 19.5 minutes per game in Phoenix last season, and we already know that he can put points on the board in a hurry. He should have a spot in the rotation next season, but he won't have a large enough role to warrant attention in standard leagues. As one of the streakiest shooters in the league, it will also be tough to rely on him in daily leagues.

Gerald Green said his poor 3-point shooting from last season was a function of shorter minutes.

For what it's worth, Green was awful in his four starts last year, making just 32.7 percent from the field while taking 13.0 shots per game in those. Although, he does have a point because his two worst full months from deep were the same months he had the fewest minutes per game. Green won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.

Gerald Green has agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Heat.

The 29-year-old will ink a $1.4 million contract that will only hit $950,000 of the Heat's salary cap. His addition will put the roster spot of James Ennis and Henry Walker in jeopardy as both only have partially guaranteed contracts and will be stuck behind Green and rookie Justice Winslow. Green doesn't offer a ton of fantasy upside, but he'll be worth a late-round fantasy pick if he can carve out more than the 19.5 minutes per game he saw in 2014-15.
Jul 9 - 10:22 AM

The Clippers have expressed interest in free agent small forward Gerald Green.

Green is as streaky as they come, but he would significantly improve the Clippers' bench and would be a lot of fun to watch in Lob City. The Celtics also have interest in Green, but the Clippers will likely prioritize re-signing DeAndre Jordan before they do anything else. On a side note, there is a growing belief that Paul Pierce could return to Washington, so this could explain why the Clippers are interested in Green.

Gerald Green is hoping to re-sign with the Suns this offseason.

"I do want to come back," he said. "I think they do want me back, too ... I just talked to Lon [Babby, president of basketball operations]. It was a good conversation so I'm a little positive about that." Green had some ugly public back-and-forths with the Suns toward the end of the year about playing time, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he heads for greener pastures.
Apr 20 - 11:14 AM

Gerald Green led the Suns with 23 points in a futile effort on Sunday, knocking down 8-of-16 shots with two 3-pointers in 26 minutes off the bench.

Green obviously wasn't limited by the back spasms that forced him to leave Friday's game, as this marks just the fifth time since Jan. 1 that he's scored 20+ points. He even chipped in four rebounds and two assists tonight -- with Brandon Knight (ankle) out of commission, Green is an intriguing gamble for owners seeking points and 3-pointers.
Apr 12 - 10:00 PM

Gerald Green (back) will play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

Green was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pelicans due to back spasms, but he will be ready to roll tonight. The Suns will have just 10 players available, so Green could get plenty of minutes off the bench. He will always be a hit-or-miss option, but Green is worth a flier for any owner in need of scoring or 3-pointers.
Apr 12 - 5:55 PM

Gerald Green left Friday's game due to back spasms after 12 minutes of action.

Green scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting with one three and this kills any appeal he had after his 30-point eruption on Wednesday. If he gets the all-clear going forward, he's to be viewed as a 3-point shooting lottery ticket and that's it.
Apr 11 - 2:18 AM

Gerald Green kept it going on Wednesday and hit 10-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers for a season-high 30 points to go along with two rebounds, two assists and a block in 30 minutes.

Green is suddenly on fire, scoring 30, 15 and 24 points in his last three games. The Suns have nothing left to play for after being eliminated from the postseason tonight, and Green should continue to get nice minutes off the bench to wind up the season. Pick him up if you need a scorer.
Apr 9 - 12:37 AM

Gerald Green followed up Saturday's 24-point outburst with 15 points, two 3-pointers and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

The explosive swingman's role is tenuous at best, as he played 22 minutes and nine minutes in his past two games. His line tonight was also the definition of empty scoring -- he shot just 6-of-16 from the field and contributed zero rebounds or defensive stats. Look elsewhere for waiver-wire value.
Apr 7 - 10:07 PM

Gerald Green scored 24 points on 10-of-17 from the field in 22 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

He had a 42.3 usage rate tonight to give the Suns instant offense. Green had a 67.6 effective field goal percentage, so that's how a guy scores 24 points in 22 minutes -- many shots were contested, too. He'll be at risk to lose minutes, so we're still a little gun-shy in grabbing him until he has a couple good games in a row.
