Danny Green set to make season debut

After missing the first four months of the NBA regular season, former UNC basketball wing Danny Green is set to make his season debut.

Green announced on his podcast ‘Inside The Green Room’ that he will make his debut on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

The 14-year vet is coming off of a knee injury that he suffered last year in the playoffs with the Philadelphia 76ers. Now with the Memphis Grizzlies, Green will look to add leadership and shooting to the current No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

“What I bring is definitely needed here: perimeter shooting and perimeter defense,” Green told ESPN. “I think I can bring maturity and help a young team understand what it takes to win. This has been an A-1 organization from top to bottom in handling this entire rehab with me.”

Green, 35, has played in 819 career NBA games with an average of 8.7 points per game while shooting 39.9 percent from three.

He has also won three NBA Championships — with the San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers — and been a key player and starter on all three.

The former North Carolina guard is coming off of his lowest scoring season (5.9 ppg) since his second year in the league — albeit playing in just eight games during that season.
