Two way upside is not there though.
According to this
The average height for a 2 guard was 6'4. Just look at someone like Donte DiVincenzo, he is a damn good defender at the 2 spot and he is 6'4 with a 6'6 wingspan. No way Green is any smaller than he is.
Dont get me wrong Im not saying Green is going to be some super stud defensive player, but I dont think size will hold him back defensively.
Yeah, people are talking like he has a negative wingspan or something. Probably about 6'8 there, average to above average height for a two guard. Totally adequate. Size isn't what's keeping LaVine (between the ears/effort) and Booker (a bit of effort though that was much better this year, mostly lack of athleticism) from being good on D. Also beal is absolutely smaller than all three of these guys so idk why hes being lumped in here
Ya Jrue Holiday is 6'4 (that is with shoes) and a 6'7 wingspan, that guy successfully defends 4s in today's NBA. Now yes Jrue is much stronger than Green will ever be. But I dont think Green needs to be able to defend 4s at a high level to be a good defender. Green will be average or slightly above average when it comes to size for the 2 guard in the NBA, to go with his freakish explosiveness and agility.
His defense wont be held back by physical traits.
