Former Georgetown forward Jeff Green addressed the media earlier today as a member of the Washington Wizards for the first time. He talked about his reasons for signing and the experience he got from going to the Finals last season with the Cavs. The Maryland native has averaged 13.2 points and 4.6 rebounds while shooting .438 from the floor and .332 from three-point range in 783 NBA games (498 starts) over 10 NBA seasons with Seattle/Oklahoma City, Boston, Memphis, Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando and Cleveland. Last season, he posted 10.8 points and 3.2 rebounds while shooting .477 from the field and .312 from three-point range in 78 games (14 starts) en route to helping the Cavs reach the NBA Finals.
He offers Washington versatility at a couple of positions of need, he has the ability to play both on the wing and in the post. He can guard multiple positions and fit in to a bevy of different lineups. Green is one of the league’s more talented players and with what he’s been through health wise, his mindset of taking nothing for granted should be a great thing for his new team.
