San Antonio Spurs guard/forward Danny Green, who was signed by the Spurs on March 16, was assigned to the Austin Toros today.
But it’ll be a short stint for Green, who will only play one game as a member of the Toros, since they are now officially out of playoff contention, regardless if they beat the Texas Legends tonight.
Green (#4, 6’6”, 210, 6/22/87) most recently signed with the Spurs on March 16, appearing in three games totaling 7 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists. He originally signed with the Spurs on November 17, when he appeared in two games, totaling 6 points in 9 minutes, before being released on November 23. In between those two stints with the Spurs, Green saw action in 16 games with the Reno Bighorns, where he averaged 20.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.38 steals in 37.4 minutes per game. He shot .451 (114-253) from the field, .434 (36-83) from three-point territory and .795 (58-73) from the free throw line.
Green showed the Spurs a glimpse of what they can expect from him when he was on the floor for 20 minutes against the Trailblazers. He hit all three of his shots from the field, including one three-pointer and his defense was on display against Portland’s backcourt.
