The Lakers have officially announced the signing of Danny Green.
Green gets paid big time after securing a two-year, $30 million payday with the Lakers. He's a far cry from the Kawhi Leonard they were hoping to land, but Green brings experience and a lot of defensive intangibles to the table. He should provide sneaky mid-to-late round value as the likely starting SG of the Lakers.

Danny Green will sign a two-year, $30 million deal with the Lakers according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Now that the Kawhi Leonard decision has been made this is one of the first other shoes to drop. Green probably steps into a solid role here and maintains his typical late-round fantasy value as a 3-point specialist. This is a ton of money for Green, which probably indicates the Lakers didn't think they could do anything else with it, which is debatable but one can understand their angle as LeBron and AD want to make sure they get as much help as possible.

According to Mike Fisher of 247 Sports, the Mavs are hoping to close deals on both Danny Green and Marcus Morris.
Danny Green ended the regular season averaging 10.3 points and 4.0 rebounds for the Raptors and he reportedly is waiting for Kawhi Leonard’s decision before he makes his own. Morris meanwhile is a hot commodity this offseason after averaging 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds for the Celtics last year. One of the biggest needs the Mavs had heading into this offseason was three-point shooting. Last season, they shot the fourth-most threes in the entire league as a team, yet they were fourth from the bottom when it came to team three-point percentage. Dallas has already agreed to terms with Seth Curry on a 4-year, $32 million deal.

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan, Danny Green’s podcast co-host Harrison Sanford said that Green is, “considering not waiting” for Kawhi Leonard’s decision before making his own.
That’s quite the departure from his previous thinking. It’s been less than 48 hours since free agency “began,” but we’ve seen most teams use their cap space already. It’s possible a potential Green suitor will go elsewhere should he keep waiting. Things continue to get interesting as we await Leonard’s landing spot.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Danny Green said he heard from the Raptors, Lakers, Clippers and Mavs on the first day of free agency.
Green's been great about providing updates on his free agency. The Mavs were reported to be a serious contender if Kawhi Leonard decides not to return to the Raptors, though the general vibe is that Green will run it back in Toronto if Kawhi does as well. He's one of the biggest fish left and will have his pick of offers once the floodgates open again.

Danny Green is a "prime target" for the Mavs, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
Green will be waiting for Kawhi Leonard's decision, as he's indicated that his top option would be to run it back with the Raptors should Kawhi stay north. Green will have no shortage of suitors given his skill set, but as of now it looks like the Mavs are in the driver's seat should he leave Toronto. It'd be a really great fit if that's what ends up happening.

The Raptors, Lakers, Rockets, Sixers, Knicks, Mavs and Bulls are expected to reach out to Danny Green in free agency, per Harrison D. Sanford.
Sanford co-hosts the Inside the Green Room podcast with Danny Green himself, so he's got a pretty good connection here. The Raptors' interest will likely be determined by Kawhi Leonard's decision, and although Green figures to wind up on a contending team it's worth noting that teams like the Knicks could offer him a more featured role. Green's 3-and-D skill set should earn him a nice deal this summer.

While the Lakers have opened up enough cap space to sign a max free agent this summer, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the team will pursue players like Terrence Ross, Danny Green and Seth Curry if they decide to spend that money on balancing the roster.
In other words, it looks like the Lakers have learned from last year's obvious mistakes and will try to surround their stars with capable shooters. Any of the three players mentioned would be solid fits. A move to a team with two high-usage stars would likely affect Ross's fantasy value the most since he's the pure scorer on the list, but we're a long way from making serious fantasy predictions just yet.

Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.
Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

Danny Green was knocking down shots in Game 3 as he scored 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc as the Raptors beat the Warriors on Wednesday.
Green was making some impossible shots from long-range, which fueled the Raptors’ late-game surge that sealed the deal. Green has always had success in the NBA Finals, so this is not a surprise to see him perform so well. He was in foul trouble and the Raptors had trouble stopping Steph Curry, so Fred VanVleet started the second half in his place. VanVleet scored 11 points with three steals on 4-of-8 shooting. Both VanVleet and Green will be key factors in determining whether or not the Raptors win the NBA Finals. In Game 4, we could see them extend their lead to 3-1 or have their lead diminish, but the Raptors are in a great position right now.
Kawhi Leonard joined Paul George on the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Lakers responded by signing three point guards, two shooting guards and two centers. All of this took 18 hours. Ethan Norof and Dan…
