Report: Danny Green down to Raptors, Lakers and Mavs

Danny Green, Raptors, Mavs, Lakers

It looks like Danny Green’s free agency is going to come down to the Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks.

Green is an unrestricted free agent. If Kawhi Leonard re-signs with the Raptors, Green will likely head back to Toronto. If Leonard leaves, though, Green will probably follow suit.

This past season, Danny Green averaged 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists while shooting 46.5 percent from the field, 45.5 percent from beyond the arc and 84.1 percent from the free-throw line. The sharpshooter, like Leonard, won his second championship.

The Lakers would love to have Green. They need shooting around stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Green and James played on the Cleveland Cavaliers together in the past.

The Mavs are said to be heavily pursuing Green, who is a career 40.4 percent shooter from the 3-point line. Dallas needs shooting around budding star Luka Doncic and power forward Kristaps Porzingis.

Green, who has career averages of 9.0 points per game, made $10 million this past season and will likely get a similar amount this offseason. You can never have enough shooting in the NBA and Danny is one of the best snipers in the league. The 32-year-old swingman is also a really good defender who has championship pedigree and a high basketball IQ.
