Dallas Mavericks: Josh Green will be one of the steals of the 2020 draft

Dallas Mavericks wing Josh Green will go down as one of the steals of the 2020 NBA Draft
After the second preseason game against the Bucks, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was asked about Green’s performance. See his quote below.
"“He’s progressing, and he’s aggressive. His aggression is done in a way that he keeps a lot of risk out of the game. He understands where the space is on the floor. He is one of our best cutters. Cutting is not a thing you hear talked about a whole lot in the media. It is not a very glorified aspect of the NBA game, but with the way the game is spaced now, and the way defenses slough off on the weak side, you got to have guys that are very good at it. Green is great at it.”"
The 20-year-old is already doing the little things that teams need. Some of the rookies that were picked ahead of him have struggled this preseason and look far from the rotation. Green is primed to have a role as a rookie with the upside to continue playing more each year.
Fans will look back in five years and say Greens should have been a top ten pick. The 20-year-old is going to get it done on both ends of the floor. He will grow and develop with the Dallas Mavericks into a starter that defends the other team’s best scorer.
Josh Green is a player to watch all season long. The Dallas Mavericks are extremely high on his prospects. Expect continued growth as the 20-year-old finds his footing in the NBA. Green could be special. The Mavs look like they found another gem in the draft that will be a solid role player flanking Luka Doncic for years to come.
That is just one more thing for Mavericks fans to be excited about going forward. Stay tuned.
