Zach Lowe: I keep hearing that (the Grizzlies) don’t want to trade Danny Green. They love Danny Green’s locker room presence. They think he might play for them the rest of the season whenever he comes back.

Danny Green is coming back in roughly 8 months. Makes me wonder a bit about the process for an older player.
Generally, ACL rehab has become a 1-year thing. But that’s also usually for guys who have many years of their career to protect. Could we see older players return quicker? – 7:33 AM

Danny Green out here warming up getting a pretty good lather. Could definitely help Memphis with more 3 and D off the bench. pic.twitter.com/8pkHKqKjxe6:53 PM

More on this storyline

Eight months after a severe left knee injury, Memphis Grizzlies guard Danny Green plans to make his season debut Feb. 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers, Green said on his “Inside The Green Room” podcast Wednesday morning. Green, 35, comes to the Grizzlies with the pedigree of three NBA championships and a belief that he can play a significant role in the franchise’s own title aspirations. Memphis’ leadership, including general manager Zach Kleiman and coach Taylor Jenkins, has raved about Green’s organizational impact before he has even played a game. -via ESPN / January 25, 2023
“They’ve made it easier for me here,” Green told ESPN. “They’ve respected me and respected that I have a résumé, a viewpoint and perspective based on what I’ve experienced. It’s still hard when you’re not battle-tested with a group, but we’ll try to get there as soon as possible.” Green is on a $10 million expiring contract. He told ESPN that “This is a place I hope that I can call home for the next couple years. I’m lucky to be in a great situation with a winning team.” -via ESPN / January 25, 2023
“What I bring is definitely needed here: perimeter shooting and perimeter defense,” Green told ESPN late Tuesday night. “I think I can bring maturity and help a young team understand what it takes to win. This has been an A-1 organization from top to bottom in handling this entire rehab with me.” -via ESPN / January 25, 2023
