In the first trade, we got a future Memphis pick for Jeff Green.

In the second, we got a lottery-protected Clippers pick from Memphis for the draft rights to Deyonta Davis and Rade Zagorac.  Interestingly, Memphis got that pick from LAC for...  Jeff Green.

Green's career was pretty forgettable here, but he helped next us two draft picks that could be building blocks for Anthony Davis.  Well done, Sleepy!

That is quite a coming-and-going kind of situation. There's gonna be a great oral history someday of teams who thought Jeff Green was the missing piece.

Anyway what ever happened to Deyonta Davis? He was decent backing up Gasol last year but Sacramento hasn't played him since the trade.

Now if someone can introduce to Danny to a center, we'll be all set.

Kings waived Deyonta in September, hes in the G League now

Yup...and he was awful. And didn't even play his position well. He would get out rebounded and out muscled every time
Most of the time, he just stood outside the perimiter like a dufus and shoot 3s.

Saw the G League didn't realize he'd been waived to get there. Dang, must've been an attitude/effort issue because the numbers were pretty solid. Now I see why he slid to the 2nd.

It's odd that Green has been traded four times, and all involve a Boston connection (although the last time only retroactively.)

First was on draft night, when we traded his rights for Ray Allen.

Then there was the Perk trade.

That was followed by getting shipped to Memphis.

Finally he was traded by Memphis to LA for a 1st rounder, which we subsequently got from the Grizz.

Jeff Green has been playing limited minutes as a small ball center  ;)

That is bizarre. Pretty much everything with Jeff Green had more to it than met the eye. Like his heart condition and missed year and the saga with getting compensation from OKC.

How about just the fact that his name is "Green"

Played college ball for John Thompson III, son of HOFer and 2x Celtic champion John Thompson, who like many greats of yesteryear spent his whole career with the Celtics ;)

Played at same high school of another Celtic legend, Len Bias.

It's like a fairy tale.  Jeff Green on the Celtics was just meant to be.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Ah yes, Nenad Krstic.  The most intimidating balding white guy since Rick Barry!*
