Danny Green agrees to 2-year, $20 million deal with Sixers
Danny Green reportedly inked a two-year deal worth $20 million, per Green’s Co-Host in the Green Room podcast Harrison Sanford.
UFA Danny Green (@DGreen_14 ) has agreed to return to the Philadelphia 76ers on a 2-year/$20M deal.
Green shot 40% from 3 this season on 6.3 attempts. Green had 1.3 SPG (t-career best) and 0.8 BPG after playing in 69 of 72 regular season games.

The 12-year veteran is coveted by a lot of teams as he has won multiple championships with the San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers. His veteran presence and championship experience are very crucial to a contending team.
After helping the Lakers win the 2020 NBA championship, Danny Green was traded to the Oklahoma City for Dennis Schroder. He never played a game for OKC as he was immediately sent to the Sixers in exchange for Al Horford.
Green played in 69 regular-season games for the 76ers and once again excelled in a 3-and-D role. The former Tar Heel player averaged 9.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 40.5 percent from beyond the arc.
The veteran sharpshooter played a significant role with the Sixers, as he ensured floor spacing and hard-nosed defense to opposing perimeter and wing players.
The Sixers struggled without Green, and their series against the Atlanta Hawks is proof of that. He did not return for the rest of the series after suffering a calf strain in Game 3 in Atlanta. They certainly missed his versatility.
Sixers fans can now breathe. Your marksman, Danny Green, is back.
