After going undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft, Green’s NBA career hasn’t exactly gotten off the ground. In 2012-13, Green signed a deal with the Spurs, only to be waived a few days later. From there he’d participate with the Austin Toros, San Antonio’s D-League affiliate.
The next season, 2013-14, Green would find himself a member of the Los Angeles Clippers Summer League team. Like the previous season, Green would agree to a deal with the Clippers only to be waived prior to the season opener. Following the release form he Clippers, Green would head overseas to play in France.
Now, he finds himself looking to get his NBA career off the blocks. Appearing on the Spurs Summer League team, Green must’ve made a good enough impression on the current NBA champions which ultimately resulted in a NBA contract. In the last few years, the Spurs have yet to find a secure backup for 2014 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. If Green makes an impression going into training camp, he could develop into that player.
