On Tuesday, Roc Nation Sports announced that it now represents San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green.

The 2017-18 season marks the eighth one for Danny Green on the San Antonio Spurs. He joined them in 2010-11 as a guard off the bench, before moving into a starting role by 2011-12 and remaining there ever since. This ride included two NBA Finals appearances, with a championship in 2014.

After this season, Green has the choice to become a free agent, as he can opt out of his salary for 2018-19. Before that happens, though, the former UNC Tar Heel will be under new representation.

Roc Nation Sports officially announced that it has signed Green, who also confirmed the move on Twitter:

Whether this new representation means anything toward his impending free agency remains to be seen. His 2018-19 salary will be $10 million, if he opts into the final season of a four-year, $40 million deal that was signed in 2015.

Green is one of a handful of players who hold options for their 2018-19 contracts. This includes Rudy Gay and Joffrey Lauvergne, both of whom were free-agent additions in the 2017 offseason. Tony Parker, Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans and Bryn Forbes are among the players whose contracts will be up after the season ends, too.

So, pending what happens this offseason, San Antonio may look different at shooting guard. It hinges on what Green does with his contract and if he wants to pursue a new deal with the organization or search elsewhere.
