Golden State Warriors should pursue Danny Green

Say what you will about Danny Green, but it is no coincidence he routinely finds himself playing significant roles on championship-contending teams. Green has competed in four NBA Finals series since 2013 and won three championships, each with a different franchise.

Green’s role is simple. Shoot 3-pointers, play defense on the perimeter. It doesn’t get much more straightforward than that. However, you’d struggle to find a more reliable two-way player night in and night out than Danny Green.

He’s a weathered vet at this point. Green is ready for every situation and will play within his limits at all times. This is precisely why he is such a valuable cog to playoff teams yearly.

Although Green has missed the last two games with injury, he’s averaging 8.0 points on close to 40 percent shooting from the 3-point line. It is obvious the 76ers are missing his steady presence, as visible in their 20+ point collapse in Game 5 against Atlanta.

Green is nearing the end of his career and likely looking to win one more championship. This makes him a prime candidate for the Warriors to sign with their MLE and bolster their lineup with one more veteran who can play both ends of the floor.
