Although he’ll turn 34 years old on July 28, Green wants to continue playing. “I feel like I still have a good maybe three or four years — who knows? — or even more,” he said. “It’s no secret that I met with [GM] Rob [Hennigan] and I met with the coaches and stuff here, and I expressed to them that I’m definitely open to being back here in Orlando,” Green said. “I like the foundation that the team has. I like our young fellas, and I think I can help them on and off the floor. So if the possibility is open, then I’m definitely open to exploring it.”

The Magic acquired Green so he could contribute off the bench and serve as a role model and mentor to the team’s youngsters. Green was a positive influence in the Magic locker room, especially for Maurice Harkless, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton. “I talk to Willie every day,” Harkless said in March. “Willie’s definitely somebody that I talk to whenever I get frustrated. He’s the one to talk to. It’s always Willie.”
