Danny Green wasn’t the immediate guess when Puma sent out a tweet yesterday alluding to the newly re-established sneaker brand signing a big name in the Toronto area. All eyes turned to his teammate and fellow sneaker free agent Kawhi Leonard. The duo was traded from the San Antonio Spurs to the Toronto Raptors over the summer.

But as it turns out, the 3-and-D wingman is the latest hoops talent to join the Puma basketball team. Puma recently inked a deal with DeMarcus Cousins and made their way back into the sneaker scene over the summer by signing some big name young talents.
A crop of rookies in Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Michael Porter Jr, Kevin Knox and Zhaire Smith all announced this summer they were joining Cousins, Rudy Gay, Terry Rozier, Skylar Diggins and NBA legend Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier on the Puma roster. Danny Green, 31, is now the latest NBA vet to join Puma.
Nick DePaula of ESPN and Nice Kicks first broke the agreement between the two sides.
