Danny Green claims signing with Lakers ‘covered all the bases for me’

Lakers, Danny Green

Danny Green says signing with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer “covered all the bases for me.”

Green signed a two-year, $30 million deal with the Lakers after playing with the Toronto Raptors last season.

“I think the same that it comes down for everyone. Obviously, it’s the best city to thrive in career-wise. Continue to still win, have fun, and live your best type of lifestyle,” Green told Wosny Lambre of The Athletic.

“And also was able to maximize on the contract. Signing with the Los Angeles Lakers covered all the bases for me.

The Lakers know what they’re going to get from stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis on a nightly basis. It’s guys like Danny Green, Rajon Rondo, Dwight Howard, Kyle Kuzma, JaVale McGee, Avery Bradley, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Jared Dudley who have to show up once the playoffs start and play sound basketball on both sides of the floor for LA to win it all.

Green has championship experience, so the Lakers can count on him to play well in the postseason. The two-time champion will stretch the floor well for LA and play stout defense when it matters.

Last season with the Raptors, Green averaged 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 80 games. He shot 46.5 percent from the field, 45.5 percent from beyond the arc and 84.1 percent from the free-throw line.
