Charania: Sam, I began to hear in the days leading up to Kawhi’s commitment in the early morning hours of July 6 that he informed the Clippers that he would sign with them — if they were able to acquire a second star. Russell Westbrook and Paul George became early targets, I was told, but Leonard identified George as the player to get. And once the Clippers received word that Leonard was choosing them, they did whatever they could to ensure his commitment stuck. I’m told Leonard has been steadfast in his recruitment of players this summer, not only pitching George but also free agents such as JaMychal Green, who is returning on a two-year deal with a player option. PG was no easy snag for them, and it’s a testament to Leonard, the organization and everyone involved for it to get done.
But Green, seeing the Clippers have a legitimate shot to win a championship and that he could play a significant role, prioritized remaining with the team and is excited about the direction of the franchise. The Clippers’ front office put on a full-court press to retain him, signifying how much they value him and wanted him back, according to sources. That mattered to Green.
Kyle Goon: The NBA rescinded the double tech on Kevin Durant and JaMychal Green from Game 3. Steve Kerr: “I think the league did a good job of recognizing both Kevin and JaMychal were incredulous. Because they were actually laughing, they were talking a little trash.”
Andrew Greif: Patrick Beverley (hip) and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) are listed as doubtful to play vs. Golden State tomorrow. And last I’d heard, team is unsure whether JaMychal Green (baby) will be able to make it.
JaMychal Green left behind in Memphis a very pregnant girlfriend. So did Nikola Mirotic, who got dealt for the second time in his career in February, moving from New Orleans to Milwaukee. “It was my family. Maybe it I was living alone, it’d be easier,” Mirotic said. “You grab the basic stuff and you move on. But I’m a married guy. My wife is pregnant. We have a son, 4 years old. It’s our life and we all have to move.” It meant getting special permission from his wife’s doctor in New Orleans for her to travel. It meant finding a new doctor in Milwaukee, a new hospital, a new doula, a new birth plan. “Everything changed,” Mirotic said.
“Man, it was a long day. A long day,” he said. “Normally I’m worried about the game, watching film, doing things like that. [Today] I’m sitting downstairs in the lobby until 1:30, 2:00, waiting for the trade deadline to pass, trying to figure out if I’m gonna be here or not. And to see Marc end up going, and [JaMychal Green] and Garrett [Temple], and just your whole team all of a sudden change. It’s hard to lose guys that you consider brothers, and I consider every one of those guys — Marc, J-Mike, Garrett — they’ve all played parts in all of our careers, especially mine.”
The Nets and Grizzlies briefly discussed a swap of Allen Crabbe — earning $19 million next season — and Denver’s first-rounder for the Garrett Temple/JaMychal Green pairing, sources say. Memphis, facing tax concerns, instead flipped those two for Avery Bradley’s semi-expiring deal — and no picks.
The L.A. Clippers have acquired forward JaMychal Green and guard Garrett Temple from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for guard Avery Bradley, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank.
Frank continued, “Garrett is respected throughout the NBA as a veteran leader and a versatile defender. JaMychal is a high-energy big who has become an excellent outside shooter. We welcome both players to the Clippers and feel they will fit well with this group.”
Marc Stein: The Hornets were not able to acquire Harrison Barnes but continue to engage with Grizzlies on a Marc Gasol deal, I’m told. JaMychal Green is also attracting interest on what could well be a busy day in Memphis
Alykhan Bijani: The #Rockets remain in talks with Memphis and other teams as we approach the trade deadline, sources tell @TheAthleticHOU. JaMychal Green has been mentioned in these talks. He is shooting 39.6% on 3-pointers this season.
Omari Sanfoka II: The Grizzlies will be without Jaren Jackson Jr. tonight as well. Jevon Carter, Shelvin Mack and JaMychal Green will start alongside Marc Gasol and Justin Holiday
The real market for members of the Grizzlies, league sources told Sporting News, is in other players on the roster, especially power forward JaMychal Green and guard Garrett Temple. Several teams this week have expressed interest in one or both players, including Portland and Charlotte.
The Grizzlies have attempted to engage several teams in a deal to move Chandler Parsons — most notably the Atlanta Hawks, league sources said. The sides have yet to build the necessary traction toward a trade. The move would free Parsons from Memphis, which has decided not to play him even though he has been cleared for basketball since Dec. 21. Expect forward JaMychal Green to attract significant interest entering the deadline.
The Grizzlies are also working on a potential trade destination for forward Chandler Parsons, who has spent time away from the team after the franchise made him a healthy inactive even as he was cleared medically on Dec. 21. Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green, who is in the final year of a two-year, $18 million deal, is seen by NBA teams as one of Memphis’ best young assets.
Omari Sanfoka II: Dillon Brooks, Mike Conley and JaMychal Green are officially good to go tonight against the Lakers. No Omri Casspi or Joakim Noah
Omari Sanfoka II: JaMychal Green joins Omri Casspi and Joakim Noah as “questionable” for tomorrow’s game against the Kings. Sore hamstring. Mike Conley and Kyle Anderson, who both played last night, are probable
David Cobb: JaMychal Green will be available against Minnesota tomorrow, according to the Grizzlies.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green suffered a broken jaw and underwent surgery today. He was hurt in victory over Atlanta on Friday night.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green will likely miss four to six weeks after surgery Saturday to repair a broken jaw, league sources ESPN. Green isn’t expected to be cleared for contact for a month.
Ronald Tillery: JaMychal Green (knee) will be OUT tonight at Portland along with Andrew Harrison (right wrist/left shoulder), Chandler Parsons (rest) and Tyreke Evans (personal) is not with team. MarShon Brooks (left ankle) is Mr. anti-tank so he’s questionable along with Marc Gasol (left groin)

Michael Wallace: Grizzlies tweaking starting lineup and going with Andrew Harrison, Dillon Brooks, Jarell Martin, JaMychal Green and Deyonta Davis. As mentioned earlier, Bickerstaff says this is more minutes/development for young guys.
Michael Wallace: Bickerstaff says JaMychal Green and James Ennis will return tonight from injuries to face the Pistons.
Michael Wallace: Grizzlies say Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) is day-to-day. He hasn’t played since Dec. 27. Both JaMychal Green (ankle) and James Ennis (calf) are expected to return within the next week, which possibly puts them in play for the upcoming 4-game road trip.

Ronald Tillery: Postgame – Griz coach David Fizdale said the group that got the team back in the game was rolling so he rode them. On Gasol: “It’s nothing against him. I’m trying to win a game. I’m desperate.” FWIW: JaMychal Green was the only starter to play in the fourth.
Michael Wallace: Fizdale on Conley: “We’ve got to give that (foot) thing some time to cool off.” Fizdale also said JaMychal Green (ankle/foot) will get 15-20 minutes in his first game since season opener.
Jason Quick: Memphis injury report at Portland: OUT – JaMychal Green (ankle); Wayne Seldon (quad). PROBABLE – Mario Chalmers (knee), Marc Gasol (ankle)
Jon Roser: #NEWS Grizzlies F JaMychal Green told me and @Eli560 tonight on @MemphisHustle broadcast he hopes to play next Saturday at Houston
Peter Edmiston: David Fizdale, on whether Chandler Parsons is a 4 now: “Yeah, for the most part, but in certain situations I’ll still use him as a 3, if I want to play bigger on the wing. But if he and J-Myke are on the floor, J-Myke takes the toughest matchup, Chandler defends another guy.”
Michael Wallace: Grizz PF JaMychal Green had been in Memphis for days waiting for his deal to be finalized. He’s be in #GrizzCamp for Thursday’s 2 practices.
Shams Charania: RFA JaMychal Green is finalizing a two-year, $17M-plus deal to return to the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources tell The Vertical.
As of Tuesday night, the Grizzlies and restricted free agent forward JaMychal Green weren’t close to making a deal. Green has until Sunday to accept a $2.8 million qualifying offer if he can’t reach terms on a new contract. The qualifying offer would be for one year and make Green an unrestricted free agent next summer.
David Aldridge: While @JaMychal Green is in Memphis tonight, told he won’t be at media day Monday while his rep & Grizz work on deal. He’s last major unsigned RFA.
Michael Wallace: Mirotic and Len came off RFA board today. Can confirm JaMychal is in Memphis on eve of media day and Tuesday’s start of camp. Sides working.
Bobby Marks: The Grizzlies JaMychal Green remains the lone restricted free agent not to sign. Green has until Oct. 1 to sign his $2.8M qualifying offer.
JaMychal Green remains a restricted agent, his $2,820,497 qualifying offer still outstanding from the Grizzlies. Chris Herrington of The Commercial Appeal: “They’ve offered significantly more than that, but also significantly less than Green and his agent were probably expecting when the process began.”
JaMychal Green is a talented stretch forward who solidified his position in the NBA by starting 75 games last season. Green’s agent, Michael Hodges, and the Memphis Grizzlies haven’t had much success in their contract talks, and sign-and-trade possibilities have been broached. The Grizzlies have basically challenged Green to land an offer sheet to keep from bidding against themselves. With Zach Randolph gone to the Sacramento Kings, and young and oft-injured forward talent remaining next to star center Marc Gasol, it would be tough for the Grizzlies to lose Green.
The Grizzlies gave Green an offer sheet at the start of free agency, and both sides waited to see what other offers might present themselves. One league source put Green’s market worth at “8 to 10 million” annually, admitting that was “on the high side,” but was what the market would bear.
The Grizzlies are still planning to keep JaMychal Green, and their payroll is such that they really can’t afford to let him go. Green is 27 and coming off a breakout year, with impressive per-36 numbers (11.8 points, 9.3 rebounds). There has been interest from the Bulls, sources said, and he is a backup plan in San Antonio depending on what happens with Simmons
Adrian Wojnarowski: Memphis made a July 1 offer to restricted free agent JaMychal Green and are now awaiting an offer sheet, league sources tell ESPN.
So what will Green command? It would seem likely he’ll be somewhere in the $10-$12 million range, and potentially more if teams believe his 38 percent shooting clip from three is sustainable (which they’d be fair to question). But with virtually every team looking for players like him, his market should be a strong one.
“JaMychal’s growth and development as a player has been huge for us,” Fizdale told The Vertical. “I’ve actually held JaMychal back a little bit, because I feel he has some ability to score more. Finding him some touches can be tough because of all the options we have, but he’s been invaluable. His ability to make open threes, defend multiple positions, loyal, being tough. He’s diligent about being in shape and working on his game, a fantastic complement to our group.”
