I like the pickup. Green had ties to Durant, D'Antoni and Kyrie, and is a great, versatile bench role player. Welcome Jeff!

That fills 14 slots, and we haven't accounted for Tyler Johnson or Chris Chiozza. That also doesn't count recent draftee Reggie Perry, nor our 2-way Payton clone Jeremiah Martin. We're full, y'all!

I actually love this pickup and have been advocating for him for a couple years. I find it perplexing he's been available so cheap the last 3 or 4 seasons. He's lost a bit of a step, but once people understood who he was as a player, instead of continuing to admire what they wanted him to become and then being let down when they realized he was older and developed already, and was what he was, I always figured he should have been considered one of the premier tier 2, 3&D wings/tweeners, like a Morris twin. But he hasn't, he's just been considered a JAG.

I'm not saying he's a game changer, or needle mover, but we just signed a guy for vet min, who imho, is still 5th best starter on a title team material and that's fantastic.

Yeah his fit makes a lot more sense than Wilson Chandler last year.

I mean he has been bad more often than not, hence all the different teams over the years. He did find a really good role in Houston though and performed very well in it, so I hope he can do the same here (we have MDA as well).

Agreed but his game makes a lot more sense here than Chandler's did since he can play the small ball center role. Chandler was just too cooked to add any 3 or D.

He's never been a consistent shooter or defender though. I think he can be a really solid bench piece for like 15-20 mpg, but I think there's a reason the guy keeps bouncing around the league, and it's more than just that he's been misused. He's just never been that good.
