Though he hasn’t been able to realize the potential that made him a top-five pick in the 2007 NBA draft, Jeff Green has settled into the role of reliable starting swingman, which the Orlando Magic will look to take advantage of next year.
Green, who will turn 30 years old in August, split last season with theLos Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies. He finished with averages of 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, appearing in 80 games overall.
The Magic will be Green’s fifth NBA franchise and his fourth in the last three seasons. He also played for the Oklahoma City Thunder andBoston Celtics. He’ll fill a key stopgap role in Orlando after the team dealt Victor Oladipo to Oklahoma City for Serge Ibaka on draft night in June.
