Donte Greene was arrested early on Sunday outside of a Miami nightclub, and he now faces charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
The timing couldn't possibly be worse for Green as he was attempting to make a comeback to the NBA after spending the past two seasons in China. Greene reportedly got into a fight with Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar outside of a Miami nightclub, and this certainly doesn't look great on his resume. It's possible this derails Greene's comeback attempt, but he wasn't going to have any fantasy value anyway. Mon, Jul 21, 2014 04:15:00 PM

Donte Greene, a former lottery pick from the 2008 draft, is attempting to make a return to the NBA.

"I’m just trying to come back and be a pro. I’m older now, more mature, and I’ve got a big family to take care of," said Greene. "[During Summer League I] Try to be a leader on the floor, be active, always be in the right spots. Play smart. Play hard. Trying to do the little things. Me being older now, it’s not so much coming out and having 30, 40 points as it was when I was younger. Now it’s about coming out and show teams I know how to play the game." Greene spent the last season in China, but even if he's able to land on an NBA roster, he will not have any fantasy value.

The Celtics will waive F Donte Greene so that he can sign a contract in China, according to Greene's agent.

Greene was traded to the Celtics in August, but his contract was unguaranteed and he wasn't expected to make it past training camp. The CBA season ends early enough that Greene can conceivably earn an NBA deal toward the end of the regular season.

Donte Greene's $1 million contract for this season is non-guaranteed.

The Celtics are slightly over the luxury tax line right now. If they cut Greene, they'll get under the tax. Considering the logjam at the 3/4 spots (Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace, Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries), it would be a surprise if Greene sticks.

The Celtics acquired Donte Greene in a trade on Thursday.

He was signed by the Grizzlies back on April 17, but he didn't play in any games. Greene played in 253 games with the Kings from 2008-12, but didn't see any action last season. He figures to be an end-of-the-bench player for Boston this year.

Grizzlies officially sign Donte Greene for the remainder of the season.

Greene and newly signed forward Willie Reed will pad the Grizzlies' bench but will do little more than that.

The Grizzlies are expected to sign Donte Greene, sources told the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Greene was playing in Puerto Rico last month, but now he'll join the Grizzlies as the team prepares for the postseason.

Donte Greene has signed to play in Puerto Rico.

Although Greene worked out for a "number" of NBA teams, he'll have to use the offseason to prove he's healthy and fight for a roster spot in someone's training camp.

Donte Greene will work out for NBA teams at Eastern Michigan on Sunday, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Greene was set to sign with the Nets before he fractured his ankle. He's 100 percent recovered, but it's unclear if he'll garner a contract offer this late in the season.

Free agent F Donte Greene (ankle) is 100 percent cleared to play.

Greene continues to work on his conditioning following his August ankle fracture. The Nets were going to sign him before the injury, but it's unclear if they still have interest.

Donte Greene (ankle) is now fully healthy and will audition his services for interested teams.

The Spurs, Bulls, Rockets, Timberwolves and Hornets have expressed interest, though it's not clear if or when Greene may get another opportunity in the NBA. His deal with the Nets fell apart in the offseason after he injured his ankle.

Donte Greene's deal with the Nets will reportedly "not go down now."

Greene's agent Chris Luchey had said previously that the expectation was for his client "to be a Net," but it sounds like that is in jeopardy following his ankle fracture. It will be interesting to see how the two sides handle it from here on out. Greene's expected to be sidelined for the foreseeable future following his injury.

Donte Greene's ankle fracture "could be worse than a simple fracture."

Greene's agent Chris Luchey said that his client was dealing with "some type of fracture," but it sounds like Greene may have seriously injured the ankle. Pending MRI results, Greene may have to undergo surgery, which would obviously force him to miss a major chunk of time. The Nets may choose to go another route if Greene's injury is severe since Greene has yet to officially sign with the team. However, Luchey did say that he expects Greene "to be a Net."

Donte Greene's signing from earlier this week with the Nets is now on hold due to pending surgery on his ankle "with some type of fracture," according to his agent, Chris Luchey.

Greene suffered an ankle fracture while working out in Charlotte last Saturday, which is absolutely terrible timing for the free agent swingman. Greene's contract wasn't going to be guaranteed, but this definitely puts a major damper on the feasibility of it actually happening at all. He spent his prior four NBA seasons with the Kings and will now have to wait out the results of his surgery and/or MRI to find his next team.

Donte Greene's contract with the Nets is "just a camp invite" and "isn't guaranteed," a source tells Hoopsworld's Alex Raskin.

However, Greene "definitely has a shot at making the team," and we'd agree with that assessment. The Nets need depth at small forward behind Gerald Wallace, and we're guessing the team isn't relying on Jerry Stackhouse to fill that role all season. Greene won't be a fantasy factor so long as Wallace stays healthy, but he's a nice depth addition for the reloaded Brooklyn squad.
