For NBA fans, Danny Green will be best remembered for what he did for the San Antonio Spurs. But the 31-year-old actually started his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2009 when he was selected as the 46th overall pick in that year’s NBA Draft.

When he joined the Cavs, there were some who noticed the close bond between Green and James. Most of it was seen in the sidelines before both eventually went separate ways.

The Cavs waived Green in 2010, but he was later on picked up by the Spurs. James, meanwhile, took his act to the Miami Heat, joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form the popular Big Three for the NBA Eastern Conference squad.

Green worked his way up and was one of the main gunners for head coach Gregg Popovich. That resulted in an NBA championship in 2014, carving a name for himself as a dead shot from the outside who could also defend when the need calls for it.

James is now with the Los Angeles Lakers and is in dire need of help. Could Green be a potential pickup after the 2018-19 NBA season?

Currently with the Toronto Raptors, Green will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, according to Spotrac. He was part of the deal that sent Kawhi Leonard to the Raptors in exchange for DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl plus a 2019 first round pick.

For 2019, Green has averaged 10.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. He is shooting 45.5-percent from the field and 44.3-percent from beyond the arc, according to With James leading the charge, Green could be a good complement to him if a reunion materializes.

The Lakers do have $35 million in cap space and Green could be a fit. While the belief is that the Lakers will be going after another NBA star, Green could be a plausible addition to resolve the scoring and wing problems the purple and gold is ruing.

But this is with the assumption that Green is considering to jump the Raptors bandwagon. Obviously, he is enjoying the ride and likely to make Toronto his priority once his current contract runs out.

There is also the possibility that Green wants to show that he can still flourish as an NBA star and help any team win an NBA title. Though he will play behind James, that is an accomplishment that not too many pro cagers can brag about.
