Boston Celtics target No. 2) Danny Green
Danny Green got made fun of for his performance during LA’s title run last year, but he’s actually a decent option. He shot super well from deep last year for the 76ers.
He shot 40.5 percent from deep on 6.3 attempts per game. This is exactly the sort of reliable shooting the Boston Celtics could use on their bench unit.
In addition, Green has always been a plus defender. His role on every team he’s been on has been that of a 3-and-D wing.
He’s never been asked to do much, but he does his job to perfection. Green would step in, be able to mentor Nesmith and Langford and play meaningful minutes for the Cs.
Outside of the injury that kept him out of a portion of the playoffs, Green is a super durable player too. He’s only missed eight games in the last three regular seasons combined.
It’s this sort of reliability that the Celtics desperately need. With the injury issues they dealt with last year, they need to take a chance on a veteran that rarely gets injured.
At 34-years-old, it’s unlikely that Green gets much more than a veteran minimum contract. Stevens should pounce at the opportunity to scoop him up in free agency.
