Danny Green on Spurs Future: 'Hopefully I'll Be Back'


By JOHN DORN

Well, that didn't take long.

Swingman Danny Green hit the open market at midnight on Wednesday, and before noon, he has an agreement in place.

No deals can be signed officially until next week, but ESPN's Chris Broussard reports that Green is staying put in San Antonio. The price? $45 million over four years.

On the surface, an average of $11.3 million per season seems like a ridiculous overpay for Green, who's never averaged more than the 11.7 points he posted this past season. But with the NBA's TV money kicking in next season, these inflated contracts are about to become the new normal. This is clear with Khris Middleton netting $70 million and Al-Farouq Aminu garnering $30 million.

Green adds great value to any team, with effective shooting from beyond the arc, great length and difference-making skills on the defensive end. San Antonio had to pay up, but it'll be keeping one of their X-factors.
