Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace announced today that Grizzlies forward Jeff Green has exercised his player option for the 2015-16 season. Green (6-9, 235) averaged 15.0 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 31.5 minutes in 78 games (70 starts) last season with the Grizzlies and Boston Celtics. Acquired by Memphis from Boston in a three-team trade on Jan. 12, he recorded 13.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 30.3 minutes in 45 games (37 starts) with the Grizzlies. Green shot a team-high .398 from three-point range after the All-Star Break and increased his three-point percentage to .438 over the final 20 games of the regular season.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Jeff Green has exercised the $9.2 million player option on his contract for the 2015-16 season, passing on free agency this summer, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Green could’ve entered the market this summer to sign a long-term extension in Memphis or elsewhere, but his uneven play after a January trade from Boston would’ve made rejecting his player option a significant financial risk.
