Denny Green’s contract with Houston… contract with Cleveland

As expected, the Houston Rockets are parting ways with veterans.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Houston have terminated the contract with Denny Green (guard, 198cm, 98kg).

Green was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies ahead of the trade deadline this season. Having missed most of this season through injury, he has appeared in the last three games. But he couldn’t avoid being traded. Memphis sent Green instead of Luke Kennard.

He has appeared in three games for Memphis this season. He recorded 3 points (.273 .375 .—) and 1.3 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per game. Having missed most of the season so far due to a knee injury, he only started playing this month. Initially, he was expected to be an outside support from the Memphis bench, and he was expected to give advice from the bench and locker room because he has experience in championships.

However, since Memphis was able to acquire Kennard through a trade, it was natural to let Green go. Memphis strengthened its backcourt power by embracing Kissixman who can handle the ball. Unlike the green, it can be played for about 20 minutes and is equipped with an outside shot. In the end, Green couldn’t avoid the trade, and came out on the transfer market. 바카라

Houston and Green were expected to break up soon. As Green came out on the transfer market, several clubs showed interest. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that since Greene became a free agent, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns have shown interest. Cleveland and Boston were found to be ahead, and the recruitment battle heated up.

In the end, the eventual winner was Cleveland. Reporter Wojnarowski immediately announced Green’s move to Cleveland. Reporter Karania said that Green’s contract with Cleveland would be for one year and $2 million. Cleveland still has a mid-level exception clause worth $3.7 million, so it seems to have taken advantage of it. By adding the green, Cleveland finally secured a shooter.

Cleveland has an all-star guard and runner-up Ricky Rubio. The big men are also at a high level. However, outlying support was rather weak. This time, while embracing the green, I solved my concerns about the outside shot. It was considered that they would trade Caris LeVert ahead of the deadline, but Cleveland decided not to bring in Tim Hardaway Jr. (Dallas) due to the burden of the remaining contract.

Instead, by adding green in the transfer market, he strengthened the outskirts. With the addition of Green to the existing Lebert and Jedi Osman, the outer power was steadily strengthened. Meanwhile, Cleveland is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 37 wins and 22 losses so far this season. As the Brooklyn Nets are expected to decline, Cleveland turned on the green light to maintain fourth place.
