Official: 76ers sign Danny Green

On Wednesday, the Philadelphia 76ers announced that they are signing Danny Green.

According to reports, it’s a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old, who spent two seasons with Philadelphia(2020-22), reunites with 76ers head coach Nick Nurse. The two were together during the 2019 championship season in Toronto.

During his time with the 76ers, he produced 7.8 points on 40.5% shooting, 3.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.2 steals in 131 games (97 starts) while ranking ninth on the franchise’s all-time list with a 39.5% three-point shooting mark. 

Green tore his ACL and LCL in the playoffs in 2022 with the 76ers and was traded to the Grizzlies at the end of that season.

Last season, the 14-year veteran spent time with the Grizzlies and Cavaliers. With the Cavs, Green played in four postseason games.

Originally selected by Cleveland with the 46th pick of the 2009 NBA Draft, Green has produced 8.7 points on 42.1% shooting (40.0% 3-PT), 3.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 25.2 minutes across 830 career games (709 starts) with the Cavaliers, San Antonio, Toronto, the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia, and Memphis. He is one of four players in league history to win NBA titles with three different franchises, joining Robert Horry, LeBron James, and John Salley.  

Depending on what he has left in the tank, Green should give Philly some depth off the bench.
