Danny Green's goals include an All-Star appearance, an Olympic gold medal and another NBA championship.
The 28-year-old wing calls himself a "middle-aged" NBA player and said there is plenty of room for improvement. The Spurs exchanged some backcourt depth for frontcourt depth, so one would think Green's minutes will be a little safer this season. He is a solid pick in the middle of drafts due to how his game translates remarkably well. Aug 8 - 6:26 PM

According to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders, Danny Green's contract with the Spurs is a four-year, $40 million deal with the fourth year being a player option.

The Spurs have done it yet again. This is a massive bargain for San Antonio considering Wesley Matthews got a four-year, $70 million deal with the Mavericks, so it's clear that Green took a discount. He averaged 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 2.4 3-pointers, 1.1 blocks and just 1.1 turnovers per game last season, and he will look to build on those numbers with Marco Belinelli out of town and Manu Ginobili another year older.

The Spurs officially re-signed Danny Green to a four-year, $45 million deal on Tuesday.

Green joked that head coach Gregg Popovich's pitch to him to re-sign in San Antonio was Pop saying, "I promise I’ll be nicer this time." He also said that the prospect of playing alongside LaMarcus Aldridge weighed into his decision and he told Pop if they could get the numbers at least close to the other offers, that he'd re-up with the Spurs. Green had a career-year last season, putting in averages of 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 2.4 three-pointers, 1.1 blocks and just 1.1 turnovers per game. He'll be worth an early-mid round selection on draft day.

Danny Green has agreed to a four-year, $45 million deal with the Spurs.

Green commanded a ton of interest from teams such as the Kings, Pistons, Mavericks and Knicks, and he probably could have gotten a lot more money if he wanted to. The chance to play for a championship with Gregg Popovich and the Spurs was probably too tempting, so it makes sense for Green to stay in San Antonio. Marco Belinelli could be on his way out of San Antonio, so Green should be locked into a significant role next season.

Unrestricted free agent Danny Green said that he would be "crazy" to not meet with the Knicks.

Green is drawing a ton of interest from around the league, and his starting salary could be around $12 million per year. Green's preference would obviously be to stay with the Spurs, but they could be low on cap space if they are able to land LaMarcus Aldridge. The Kings, Mavericks and Pistons are also in play for Green, and this story should continue to heat up over the next couple of days.
Jul 1 - 8:40 AM

Free agent Danny Green plans to meet with the Pistons, according to Shams Charania of RealGM.

The Knicks, Mavericks and Kings are also reportedly interested in Green, and it may be hard for San Antonio to compete after giving Kawhi Leonard a massive extension and tying up their remaining cash in pursuit of LaMarcus Aldridge. It wouldn't be surprising if more teams enter the mix for Green, who paired his impressive defense with 41.8 percent shooting beyond the arc last season.
Jul 1 - 12:34 AM

Danny Green, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, does not currently have a meeting scheduled with the Trail Blazers.

This could certainly change later on, but as of right now, it appears the Trail Blazers won't be a part of the initial group vying for Green's services. If the Spurs are able to nab LaMarcus Aldridge during free agency, it could be difficult for the club to retain Green, so this is a story we'll be watching closely. So far, the Knicks and Mavs have expressed interest in prying away Green from San Antonio.

The Knicks have interest in getting a meeting with Danny Green.

The Knicks are going to go after a wing, but it's not going to be easy for them to pry Green away from San Antonio. With so few attainable unrestricted wings out there, Green should be set up for a big pay day.
Jun 29 - 4:27 PM

The Spurs reportedly fear that they may not be able to retain Danny Green as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

With the Spurs set to offer Kawhi Leonard a five-year max-deal, and smaller deals for both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, in addition to a free agent pursuit of LaMarcus Aldridge, the budget could be tight in San Antonio. Green has reportedly drawn interest from the Mavs, Trail Blazers and Pistons thus far, and if the Spurs nab Aldridge via free agency, there chances of retaining Green will be lessened.

According to Real GM, the Mavericks will pursue unrestricted free agent Danny Green this summer.

Monta Ellis will opt out of the final year of his deal with Dallas, and his chances of returning to the Mavericks appear to be slim to none. Green could command anywhere from $10 to $12 million on the open market thanks to his lethal 3-point shooting and defense, and the Mavericks should now have plenty of cap space to make a deal happen. It's hard to imagine Green leaving the Spurs, but San Antonio could be in danger of losing a key cog of their rotation.

Danny Green said that he hopes to re-sign with the Spurs this offseason.

Green will be an unrestricted free agent, but San Antonio also has to address Kawhi Leonard's free agency as well as a potential new deal for Tim Duncan and/or Manu Ginobili. Green should get some really solid offers in free agency after averaging 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.4 triples (41.8 percent) on 43.6 percent shooting overall.
May 4 - 9:31 AM

Danny Green had a very impressive game during a tough 111-109 loss to the Clippers in Game 7 on Saturday, scoring 16 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and three 3-pointers.

While he wasn't great off the ball on defense, his on-ball D was tremendous. Green was one of just six players in NBA history to average at least two blocks, one steal and one block (qualifiers for minutes) in a season. He was a fantasy monster and will be again next season. You won't be able to get him in the last few rounds this time, though. Tony Parker also had a good game tonight with 20 points, five boards, five assists and one steal.
May 2 - 11:13 PM

Danny Green failed to connect on his six 3-point attempts in Game 4, going scoreless with two rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes of action.

Five of Green's 3-pointers were of the 'uncontested' variety, meaning no Clippers' defender was within 3.5 feet of him, yet he still came up empty in the tough home loss. He's now averaging 6.5 points on 29.0 percent shooting in the series.
Apr 26 - 7:50 PM

Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and three triples in Friday's Game 3 win over the Clippers.

Green has been quiet but tonight's output was a good sign that he's ready to heat up. Check his DFS prices because he might be undervalued.
Apr 24 - 11:56 PM

Danny Green sank three 3-pointers as part of a 12-point effort on Sunday, adding two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block to help the Spurs hold off the visiting Suns.

Green now holds the Spurs' single-season record for 3-pointers made at 191, passing former record-holder Chuck Person. San Antonio is riding a very impressive 11-game win streak, which has vaulted them all the way to the No. 2 seed in the West.
