Dallas Mavericks are pushing hard to sign Danny Green
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks free agent target Danny Green wants to wait to make his decision, but that has not stopped owner Mark Cuban from pushing hard.
Dallas Mavericks fans were hoping the team made a significant splash in free agency this summer. So far, they have added Seth Curry and Boban Marjanovic along with locking up Kristaps Porzingis, Maxi Kleber, Dwight Powell, and Dorian Finney-Smith long-term.
One of the Mavericks primary targets remains unsigned. Free agent wing Danny Green has not found a home for next season. Dallas still has plenty of cap space to ink Green, but they are awaiting his decision.
Danny Green talked about his free agency on his most recent podcast. He noted that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is pushing hard, but Green is going to wait until Kawhi Leonard makes his decision before choosing his team. Mavericks supporters should listen to Inside the Green Room with Danny Green to hear it all for themselves.
Green and Leonard have been teammates since Kawhi was drafted in 2011. Eight seasons, two uniforms, and two rings later, it is difficult to blame Green for waiting on Leonard’s decision.
Cuban should be pressing hard to try to get Green to make a decision now. If Kawhi decides to play for the Clippers or Raptors, the Lakers are going to make a significant offer to Green. The Mavericks are in the driver’s seat as the both Los Angeles squads wait on Leonard’s decision. Nice work by Cuban there.
Danny Green is a fantastic fit for the Mavericks. He plays stellar defense and is a career 40.4 percent 3-point shooter. Green will improve the Mavs on both ends of the floor and increase their playoff odds significantly.
Dallas is stuck in a holding pattern until Kawhi decides on his future, though.
