If there is one thing an NBA team is sure to get with Jeff Green on its roster, its a decent work ethic and a double-figure point average at the end of the season. The former Georgetown University player, who was selected by the Boston Celtics in the 2007 NBA Draft with the fifth overall pick, has gone on to play for seven NBA teams, including the Seattle SuperSonics / Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers, and most recently the Washington Wizards.
Jazz agree to deals with Jeff Green to bolster bench depth
After losing Jae Crowder, Derrick Favors and Raul Neto, the Jazz needed to acquire some talent to bolster their bench.
The Salt Lake Tribune confirmed that Utah agreed to terms with Green on one-year minimum contracts on Tuesday, filling out their bench in spots where major moves had forced departures. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report both agreements.
Green is an 11-year NBA veteran who has played for seven different teams over his career, including with the Washington Wizards last season. A versatile 32-year-old, 6-foot-9 power forward with a 7-foot-1 wingspan, Green holds career averages of 13.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game, shooting 44% from the field and 33% from deep. Last year with Washington, he averaged about 12 points while playing over 27 minutes per game for an underachieving team.
After being selected by the Seattle SuperSonics with the fifth pick in the 2007 NBA draft, Green spent three and a half years with the Sonics/Thunder franchise as a scorer alongside Kevin Durant and then Russell Westbrook. But a heart condition in 2011-12 caused him to miss the entire season and threatened his career before he was cleared to play again in 2012-13.
With Green, the Jazz has filled two more holes in their 2019-20 rotation, which now looks nearly complete. Besides Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Rudy Gobert, the Jazz can now claim the services of Dante Exum, Mudiay, Royce O’Neale, Green, Georges Niang, Ed Davis, and Tony Bradley among second-unit options.
Green, who has started 63% of games in his career, could be an option at the starting power forward position, too, if the Jazz would like to bring Ingles off the bench to run the team’s second unit. Mudiay figures to be insurance if Exum misses time again this season.
Both deals are for the league’s minimum. Because Green has more than 10 years of NBA experience, he’ll earn $2,564,753 next season. The Jazz now has 12 players on the roster and must sign one more to a minimum contract to reach the roster minimum of 13. They can sign up to 15, plus up to two two-way contracts.
