San Antonio Spurs Season Review: Danny Green

By George Middleton

Danny Green had the best season of his career, despite having his inconstancies. Green will be an unrestricted free agent this season, which means he will likely earn more than the $3.8 million salary he earned, whether it’s with the Spurs or with another team. What did Green do right and do wrong? Find out below!

C+. Danny Green stepped up his production in 2014-15. After averaging 9.1 points and 1.5 assists in 2013-14, Green averaged 11.7 points and 2 assists this season. What made Green’s season a success was his efficiency. He shot 42% threes and 87% free-throws. Green did a terrific job of shooting from downtown but he could’ve been more efficient from the field (44%). For consecutive seasons, Green averaged only 1.1 turnovers. Green had nine games of at least 20 points, with a season high of 27 points against Portland. Danny Green had the most threes in a season in Spurs history with 191. Chuck Person had 190 three-pointers in 1995-96.. SG/SF. Offense. DANNY GREEN

B-. Danny Green defensively has improved basically every season. Green has the ability to defend both wing spots with comfort as he has length and mobility. Green was also one of few to average at least a steal and a block. Green averaged a career high 4.2 rebounds. This is an area that Green can seek improvement in, averaging 5 rebounds would be a good start. Overall Green was one of the better defenders on the Spurs and had success on this end most nights, than not.. SG/SF. Defense. DANNY GREEN

C+. Despite his struggles in the playoffs (8.3 ppg), Danny Green was a big piece for the Spurs as he played a pivotal role especially when Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker missed games. Green played in 81 games this season. If Green improves his field goal percentage and rebounding, he can take the next step as a player. As of now Green is a terrific shooter that doesn’t make many mistakes on either end. Expect the Spurs to get a hometown discount on Green, and he should make around $5 million a season.. SG/SF. Overall. DANNY GREEN
