On the same day Jim Boeheim landed a prize recruit, so did Boeheim’s Army with former SU star Donte Greene signing up for another tour of duty. Greene becomes the fourth former first-round NBA draft pick to join the 8-man roster, joining Tyler Lydon, Malachi Richardson, and Chris McCullough. The 28th pick of the 2008 NBA Draft also played for the Army in 2017, when the team made a run all the way to the TBT Final Four.
Storyline: The Tournament
The BIG3 presented an opportunity for the NBA veteran to play in front of his family, and he’s positioning himself for a return to the League, so his kids, now old enough to understand the game, could see their father compete at the highest level. “I’m always working; trying to get a vet camp or something,” Greene said. “You never know. This summer will be very interesting, so hopefully I get that opportunity.”
According to the arrest affidavit released by Miami Beach police on Monday, Greene says he was defending his younger brother, Dmetrique during a fight with St. Louis Rams lineback Jo-Lonn Dunbar, moments later police stepped in and tasered Donte in the rear end. “I am sorry [officer] but this guy has been after me for years since I got into the NBA,” Greene said, according to the affidavit. “He was beating my brother, and I had to do what I did.”
