The Cleveland Cavaliers will sign wing Danny Green after his buyout agreement with the Houston Rockets is complete. Last season Green tore his ACL with the Philadelphia 76ers and in the offseason was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. The veteran wing just returned to the court after recovering from his injury and played just three games for Memphis this season. He was traded at the 2022-23 NBA Trade Deadline to Houston in a multi-team deal and both sides quickly began working on a buyout. For Green, this is a return to the team that first gave him a shot in the NBA back during the 2009-10 NBA season.

In just three games and 14.3 minutes per game this season with the Memphis Grizzies, Danny Green averaged three points and 1.3 rebounds per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 27.3 percent and a three-point percentage of 37.5 percent. As Green works back from his ACL injury, he will provide an expereinced wing that can knock down a shot and defend well. Green also brings with him the expereince of winning three NBA Championships, which the Cavaliers are hoping to make four at the end of this NBA season.
