As the 2023-2024 NBA season prepares to tip off in just a few hours, we saw a flurry of new deals across the league, thanks to the October 23 deadline.
Among those who secured new contracts, Maverick's guard Josh Green was one of those who inked in a new deal.
Rumors swirled in anticipation of his contract negotiations, with fans and media alike speculating on whether the team would re-sign Green and eagerly discussing the potential magnitude of the offer on the table.
Mavericks save millions with team-friendly contract for young guard Josh Green
Once the "Woj bomb" came out that the Mavericks were extending their 2020 first-round pick, fans found it more surprising that Dallas signed Green to a team-friendly three-year, $41 million deal.
With Green's extension rounding at $14 million for the 2026-2027 season, it's a testament to the front office's ability and commitment to this roster while being cost-effective. If Green is the player fans anticipate him to be, he will soon outgrow this hometown deal. As Green has expressed in the past, he wants to be in Dallas and win with this group.
It's a significant achievement and another big win for Mavericks GM Nico Harrison who continues to impress with his well-executed moves. The fanbase initially anticipated Green to command a contract in the range of $50-$60 million over the course of 4-5 years, which is why fans commend Nico Harrison's tactics even more.
As this is another victory for Mavericks fans, we have hope that more moves will be made.
The Mavs front office is lining up the window with the signings of Kyrie Irving, Dwight Powell, and now Josh Green all on three-year deals ending around 2027. We can acknowledge the foot is slowly pushing the gas, and the pressure is building up for this group to get it done.
For all the latest on the Dallas Mavericks and Josh Green this season, stay tuned.
