Green’s credentials include a championship and an All-Defensive nod in 2017. This season, he’s added another: Kawhi whisperer. “I get it from everyone in the organization,” says Green, Leonard’s teammate for seven seasons in San Antonio. “It’s ‘How’s Kawhi, does he like it here?’ Man, I don’t f—— know. You have to ask him if he likes it. I think he likes it. But you have to ask him.”
While Green and Leonard came as a package, there is no guarantee they remain one after this season. Both former Spurs are heading into free agency this summer and while Green is open to anything, last summer proved anything can happen. “Obviously we don’t know what’s going to happen after this year,” he said. “I would love to still be here (with the Raptors), obviously, but we don’t know. We don’t know where [Leonard’s] going to be, we don’t know a lot of things (that) are going to happen. “In terms of decision making, (Leonard’s future) affects everybody.”
Storyline: Danny Green Free Agency
“If [Leonard] stays they might want to bring everybody back, if he leaves they might want to change, who knows?” Green said. “We’re both grown, we can make our own decisions for our own families. We might sit down and talk about it to see what page he’s on and how he feels about something and how I feel, but at this point we’re not thinking about that or talking about it. We’re trying to play good basketball… and get everybody healthy and winning games. “Hopefully at the end of the year we can celebrate somethings, outside of free agency.”
But mostly he was a veteran who had seen others in the orbit around the Spurs’ superstar mainstays get shuffled around to keep the enterprise pushing forward. Everyone has their time. “You know how this league is,” he said. “…I saw how it was going; things were changing. Nobody’s really safe.” In an instant, he was looking ahead. “I’m a positive person. I look at things in a positive light, that’s human nature, or my nature anyway,” he said. “I already knew how (the Raptors) played… the more I watched and the more I studied I thought: ‘You know what? This could be a really good fit.’ “And the fact I was going with (Leonard) helped even more.”
