Spurs free agent shooting guard Danny Green is back from vacation in Brazil and agreeable to a meeting with his hometown Knicks. Green, the Babylon, Long Island native, said just having Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher leading the charge is enough to listen. “For sure – anybody turning down a meeting with them would be crazy,’’ Green said Tuesday night on Alan Hahn’s ESPN Radio show in the hours leading into the free-agency period. “It starts with them and Melo as well.’’: 13 more rumors
For Green, it was mission accomplished, as he helped the Spurs knockoff the Blazers en route to advancing and winning the NBA Finals. It’s been reported that he could have interest in joining the team he helped defeat, but CSNNW.com has learned, as of now, the Blazers aren’t expected to meet with Green, who will hit the free agent market on Wednesday.: 13 more rumors

It’s been reported that he could have interest in joining the team he helped defeat, but CSNNW.com has learned, as of now, the Blazers aren’t expected to meet with Green, who will hit the free agent market on Wednesday.
League sources, though, believe Green is a goner, with the Trail Blazers, Mavericks and Pistons registering interest.: 13 more rumors
The New York Knicks “want to be in” the mix for free-agent guard Danny Green, league sources say. Green’s interest in the Knicks is unclear at this point. New York has a void to fill at shooting guard following the trade of Tim Hardaway Jr.
The Mavericks want to fortify their backcourt, and will make inquiries about San Antonio’s Danny Green and Portland’s Wesley Matthews. Reports in LA over the weekend said Matthews was spotted with Jordan and Chandler Parsons.: 13 more rumors

Marc Berman: Source: #Knicks have interest in meeting with Long Island’s SG Danny Green, but he’s in Brazil. San Antonio very much in picture, though.: 13 more rumors
If they get Jordan — or miss out on both top targets, hopefully keeping Chandler in that case — the Mavs will look to invest in a shooting guard whose game would mesh well with Parsons’. In other words, they want a strong defender and 3-point shooter who is comfortable playing off the ball, pretty much the polar opposite of Ellis. The top names on that list in this summer’s free agency crop are Danny Green and Wesley Matthews.
As Monta Ellis pursues a new deal on the east coast, the Dallas Mavericks are targeting San Antonio Spurs free agent Danny Green, league sources told RealGM.: 13 more rumors
Already, Green is trying to prepare himself for the madness to come. “I hope it doesn’t get too crazy,” he said. “You don’t want to count on things in advance, but I just hope I can capitalize on I guess what you’d call a career peak.”

One of 10 Spurs who will become a free agent July 1, Green understands the likelihood there will be significant changes to the roster for next season. He just hasn’t allowed himself to consider how next season’s Spurs might be composed. “It hasn’t sunk in yet, but this is a special group,” he said. “That’s why it sucks so bad, especially for Timmy (Duncan) and Manu (Ginobili). We had an opportunity to do something special for them. All I can do is hope and pray for another group like that in the future, but I have a feeling some of those guys will be back. R.C. and Pop do a great job of bringing in new guys.”
One change he hopes won’t be made: His presence in San Antonio. “Hopefully, I’ll be back,” he said. “I love San Antonio. The fans have always supported us, from day one. It sucks that we had such a special group, and things may be changing and not be the same again.”
“Manu and Timmy are the greatest teammates I’ve ever had,” Green told the San Antonio Express-News. “It sucks I couldn’t do it and get a win for them.”
When the local product was in town with the Spurs a month ago – sporting a “Made in New York” tattoo on his wrist and a Yankees hat in his locker – I asked Green if the Knicks could be an attractive free agent destination for players this summer. “New York’s a great place, a great city,” Green told SheridanHoops. “A lot of people love coming and visiting here. You know Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher now are changing things around a little bit and I’m sure that they have more than enough cap space. They’re going to get some guys so it’ll be interesting. I think they’ll be able to get some good pieces in free agency during that time.”
You guys held a players-only meeting in Utah, and Danny Green talked a little about the communication in the locker room. What’s the vibe in the room to you right now? Tony Parker: “On our team, when we win it’s us and when we lose it’s us. We’re not going to pinpoint anybody individually. It’s us as a team. Obviously, I have a big part of that. I have to do my part. I know it. I’ve struggled before, but never like that. I think it’s my worst three-game stretch, but hopefully I’ll get it back. The last 10 games was great for me. I was looking great and making some positive strides in the right direction up to the All-Star break. Those three games (since) just … weird.”
“I’m sure some guys do get nervous lots of places (at the deadline),” Spurs guard Danny Green said. “Here not so many. We have a good group and if it’s not broke don’t fix it. Everybody knows anything can happen in this league, but everyone is pretty confident we’re going to stay put.”
Well, we spoke with Tim Frank — Senior V.P. of Communications for the NBA — and asked if everything was a go for tonight and here’s what Tim said: “He is … Danny was asked and given permission to wear them for one game. Unlike some reports you might have read, he was never told ‘No.'”
San Antonio Spurs star Danny Green has been given the green light to rock a special pair of sneakers dedicated to Stuart Scott for TONIGHT’S GAME … the NBA tells TMZ Sports. Green had approached custom shoe designer Jake Danklefs and ordered up a special pair to pay tribute to his fellow North Carolina Tar Heel … and was only waiting tor permission from the league.
Danny Green’s tribute to Stuart Scott, the popular ESPN anchor who died on Jan. 14 after a lengthy battle with cancer, likely will come in Thursday’s nationally televised game at Chicago. Green was well acquainted with Scott, a fellow North Carolina graduate and dedicated Tar Heels supporter.

So far, members of the Spurs have not chosen to join in the “I Can’t Breathe” movement. However, guard Danny Green told the Express-News on Friday players have discussed it as an option. “I think it’s great that people are making a stand for what they believe in, and supporting the (Garner) family,” Green said. “We’ve had discussions. We haven’t really come up with anything. We don’t want to do something just because someone else is doing it. We want to do it because we’re into it, it’s what we want to do. Obviously here we like to play it safe. We don’t want to jump on something we don’t know the details about.”
Danny Green: I want to sincerely apologize for the insensitivity of my post! I have great respect n understanding for this country’s history n wanted to continue chronicling my experience in Berlin. But showed poor judgement…sorry once again
One of the Spurs’ more active players on social media, Danny Green had a misstep on Instagram during the team’s trip to Berlin with an unfortunate caption for a “selfie” he recently took at the city’s Holocaust Museum: You know I had to do it one time lol #Holocaust
Indeed, he already considered Hammon an unofficial member of the staff after she spent last season observing the Spurs, sitting in on games, practices and meetings and chipping in with her input when asked. Said Green: It wasn’t a big shock to me, being that she was with us the previous year. She’s been around the organization for some years now, but she’s was with us pretty much full-on last year. I don’t think things will change much. We’re used to being around her, she’s a coach, we respect her. It will be an adjustment, but not much of one. I think we have the guys who are very professional enough to handle it.
Now the NBA’s most successful active coach is on board for a while longer. “He’s a great coach and it’s very comforting for the young players that he’s going to be around, at least for a while longer,” Green said. “I wouldn’t want to play for anybody else. I’d love to play the rest of my career here and have him be with me and Kawhi (Leonard) and the rest of the young guys for our entire careers.”
During the conversation, guest host and North Carolina Central basketball coach LeVelle Moton recalled how driven the former Tar Heel was even when he was out of the league. Green claims that it was all about building confidence. “That’s the biggest key with anything,” Green said. “Being confident in yourself and continuing to have that hope.” The shooting guard talked about gaining an appreciation for life in the NBA compared to playing overseas or in the D-League. “You take those things for granted when you’re so spoiled at a school like Carolina or in the NBA.”
McCants, who played on the 2005 UNC national-title team, told ESPN’s Outside The Lines that coach Roy Williams knew of players skipping classes. He also said tutors wrote papers for players. Green, a former Tar Heel, denied the claim. “The more attention you give it, the more relevance it’s going to have,” Green said. “It shouldn’t. I got my degree. I earned my degree. I’m proud of it. I know everybody was there with me in my classes. We worked. I did everything the right way. Coach Williams did everything the right way.”
By the time the 105-92 win that tied the series 2-2 was over, he wasn’t alone. Tony Parker, who played just six of his 26 minutes in the second half when Popovich benched his starters, sat stone-faced as he watched the one-sided affair unfold. Tim Duncan, who had a meltdown moment of his own in the third quarter when he could be seen flailing his arms and yelling toward coaches and guard Danny Green about the latest defensive mix-up, had gone from stoic to steamed as he sat helpless on the sideline. They had every reason to be angry, not to mention worried.
“It’s about everybody,” he said. “We’re a family here. Brotherhood, whatever you want to call it. Fraternity. We’ve been together for a couple of years, I’ve grown very fond of a lot of my teammates, and we’ve grown close together, close friendships. I know how much it means to them, how competitive they are. As much as I want to win a ring, I know they want it, too.”
Duncan finished with 27 points on 11-for-19 shooting, with 21 of his points coming in the first half. The Spurs’ backcourt of Tony Parker, Danny Green and sixth man Manu Ginobili that no longer had to fear Ibaka’s long arms contesting on the perimeter shot 19-for-31 for 48 points. After shooting 44.2% against the Thunder in four regular season losses, the Spurs shot 57.5% from the field in all. “We always want to try to penetrate,” Parker said. “We always want our ball movement, that’s how we play — kick and pitch and stuff like that. You know, obviously it’s a little bit better with (Ibaka) not being in the paint, but we’re still going to try to penetrate and make stuff happen.”
Spurs shooting guard Danny Green, a snake aficionado who owns a pair of boa constrictors, said several Blazers teased him about planting the creature in their locker room. “They came up to me when I was out there (warming up), ‘Why you put snakes in our locker room?’ Green said. “It’s believable, in Texas. They’re in random places everywhere.”
