He had fantastic chance, when Mavs had Covid problems. Unfortunately he didn't show much. I doubt that fighting spirit is enough to stay in the league.
The same goes with Austalian NT. Do you really think that coach wouldn't gave him at least little more playing time, if he would have shown something in 1 month and half practicing with NT? If you're not playing even in garbage time, then it's obviously that something is wrong. And even more funny is that he missed summer league, because he was tired after playing 15 minutes in Olympics. Another place to show something in a lot easier environment than Nba, but he decided not to play there, because of jet lag. Wtf?
It's not only about not hitting 3s, he was non existent in offense. He looked totally lost there. Richardson was bad, struggled with shooting..., but Green couldn't even get position to shoot, his drives to the rim more or less always ending disastrous.
