6 teams Danny Green rejected in free agency (Including Lakers & Nets)

Danny Green, 76ers

Danny Green resigned with the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday, inking a 2 year / $20 million dollar deal. After garnering interest from a plethora of teams, Green’s decision to come back most likely stems from a combination of low-money offers from other teams and a desire to repeat the success he had this year, a return to form for the marksman, in Philly:

According to another report by Sanford, Green received interest from the Brooklyn Nets (in what would have been a sign and trade deal involving Spencer Dinwiddie), Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, and Los Angeles Lakers.

Evidently, he is quite the popular commodity.

The interest for Green makes sense, as he is a 12-year veteran with 3 championship wins – one with the Lakers, Toronto Raptors, and San Antonio Spurs each.

Teams like Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and Chicago, whose best players aren’t particularly sharpshooters, could have used his aid the most.

Though he’s had his ups and downs in his career, including a cold streak with the Lakers in 2020 in which he received death threats from fans, he has always found a way to bounce back and refine his game.

As mentioned previously, Green had a career revival this past season with the 76ers. His value to the team was apparent when, after he suffered a calf strain in Game 3 of their series against the Atlanta Hawks, Philly struggled to create efficient offense without Green’s ability to space the floor and struggled to stop the Hawks’ talented backcourt.

He is the epitome of a three-and-D player, which is what the modern NBA is all about. Combine that with his big game experience, and he is truly a rare talent. This time around, with a healthy Danny Green and a new-look Philadelphia roster, the Sixers will certainly give opponents a run for their money deep into the playoffs.
