2. Josh Green's contract extension
Dallas Mavericks fans couldn't wait to watch Josh Green take the floor this season after seeing him ball out during the FIBA World Cup, but he has not played at a high level to start the season.
Dallas extended Green to a three-year deal before the season, and the front office could be regretting that decision after seeing his play to start the year.
Green is averaging 7.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 0.9 steals per game while shooting 36.2 percent from three. Green has gone back to the bad habits that hindered his offensive game over his first few seasons, and his potential fourth-year jump has been nonexistent.
Green does not look confident with the ball in his hands, and he isn't the same deadly shooter that he was last year.
Defensively, Green has been solid but there has been some regression there as well.
This move is the least likely that Dallas will regret because Dallas could easily move this contract if they wanted to, and Green still has plenty of potential. Green has put together two solid games back-to-back over the last week, and will look to carry that momentum into Saturday's game.
If Green can elevate his play on both ends of the floor, Dallas would be thrilled. They've been needing someone to step up defensively, and Green's energy and effort could make him the defensive stopper that Dallas needs.
