Considering the uncertain future of Monta Ellis in Dallas, Mavs fans can be sure to find their team shopping on the shooting guard aisle in the free agency market. According to recent reports, if Ellis chooses to opt out of the last year of his contract, the Mavericks will not be willing to give him a raise in pay.

Since Ellis will likely opt out and could very possibly part ways with Dallas, the Mavericks’ front office will be keeping a close watch on potential replacements for the 29-year-old veteran.

Enter Danny Green: a sharpshooting, defensively-minded guard from the intrastate rival San Antonio Spurs. Green played arguably the best basketball of his 6-season tenure this past year, posting career-high averages in points, assists, steals, blocks, and rebounds.

Who is Danny Green, and why would he fit so well on the Mavs’ roster? I’m glad you asked.
