Free agent guard Danny Green He agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract to stay with the Philadelphia 76ers, his agent, Raymond Brothers of Roc Nation Sports, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Wednesday night.
After knocking out the tournament with the Los Angeles Lakers on the bubble, Green was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder and then traded to Philadelphia in a later deal, providing a steady outside presence.
Green is exiting a two-year, $30 million deal he signed to join the Lakers in the summer of 2019. The 12-year-old veteran had a consistent regular season for Philadelphia, averaging 9.5 points and shooting 40.5 percent in 3 seconds. Strong defense.
However, a calf strain suffered early in the 76ers’ second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks and shortened the post-season.
Green, a three-time champ with three franchises, earned high praise for his leadership in the locker room during Doc Rivers’ first year in Philadelphia.
