Veteran forward Jeff Green becomes free-agent
Veteran forward Jeff Green has cleared his waiver with the Utah Jazz, making him an unrestricted free agent, after he was released by Jazz on Tuesday. Green was strategically released by the team after the Jazz acquired Jordan Clarkson in a trade deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
According to Chris Haynes, Green cleared his waivers within two days after he was released by Utah Jazz.
Green has been with seven franchises in his last six seasons and has a career average of 13 points and 4.4 rebounds. Overall, he has played for eight different teams in his 12-year NBA career.
With Jazz, Green had a poor start, averaging 7.8 points and 2.7 rebounds. He played at an average of 18.4 minutes per night and shot at a rate of 38.5% from the field. The Jazz want Georges Niang to take up more time on the court and represent them going forward.
Although few teams have available rosters for Green to fit in, and his stats do him no favors, it will be interesting to see where he goes next. But with his experience, teams would not mind grabbing him on a minumum-salary contract.
