   We're Adding A Little Something To This Month's Sales Contest. As You All Know, First Prize Is A Cadillac El Dorado.

In his rookie year, Green played only 115 minutes. A large part of the reason why he sat was the presence of Jawad Williams, who took most of whatever available wing minutes there were behind Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon and the guy who left. Hot Wad played 742 minutes on the season, although he did not play them well, shooting below 40% from the field and rarely passing or rebounding. Yet the Cavs benched Green in favour of Williams at almost every possible opportunity, and have brought Williams back with a view to doing it again. Minutes, again, may be tough for Green to find. Even though that guy with the TV show has left, Joey Graham has been brought in to play small forward, and Christian Eyenga has been brought over to begin his transformation into the next Kirk Snyder. Cleveland's small forward and shooting guard rotations are not good, but there are nonetheless many options there. For Green to get any minutes - and for him to even make the roster - he'll need to show he belongs in a mix that already involves Parker, Moon, Graham, Eyenga, Williams and Boobs Gibson.

   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Danny Green - Green was waived by the Cavaliers in training camp, but briefly caught on with the Spurs. He scored 6 points in 9 minutes, but was waived in favour of Ime Udoka. After this, Green was in talks to be Joe Crawford's replacement at Serie A side Bancas Teramo, but they were unable to meet his salary demands. Green remains unsigned, and because he was called up to the NBA as recently as two months ago, another call-up could certainly be possible.

Danny Green

Green barely played in his rookie season, playing only 115 minutes over 20 games. He should benefit next season from the void at small forward that Cleveland now has.

Danny Green
SG/SF, 6’6, 215lbs, 30 years old, 8 years of experience

The defence is as good as ever. The offence, however, is in a two year slump. Green recovered his true shooting percentage a little bit this season, back to .537% from .492% in 2015/16, but it does not compare to the four previous seasons of being between .579% and .600%. Green shot 37.9% from three-point range, itself also an improvement on the year prior but down compared to the four prior to that, and he still cannot be relied upon off the dribble. Still, even if the efficiency never comes back like it did, Green earns his money on defence alone.

Player Plan: Two years with $10 million each remaining, the second being a player option. What was a steal of a contract has become pretty appropriate in light of his offensive regression, and while he will probably play it out, he may have value on the market.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 2nd November 2017

Green has had to step up his scoring in the absence of Kawhi Leonard so far this year, and is averaging 11.1 points on 43.5% shooting, numbers more in keeping with his game at its peak. The defence is still there, too, manifest statistically through averages of 1.4 steals, 1.3 blocks and 4.1 rebounds per game. There is little competition for minutes at Green’s position right now, and he almost never fouls, which could mean a relatively big night is in order. With the Warriors’ defence as poor as it has been to start the season, maybe this will be the game Green cracks 20.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
