The Lakers and Suns are among the others expected to have an interest in Green, sources told Hoops Wire.


The Cavs, Celtics and multiple others are interested in Green, who was traded from the Grizzlies to the Rockets at last week’s deadline. He has spent most of the season on the injured list and has appeared in just three games.

Last season, he appeared in 62 games with the 76ers, providing his usual dose of perimeter defense, scoring 5.9 points and shooting 38 percent on 3-pointers.

Green, 35, is 6-foot-5 and has also spent time with the Lakers and Spurs, after spending his rookie season with the Cavs. Cleveland originally drafted him with the No. 46 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

The Cavs had attempted to trade for a 3-and-D wing at the deadline, to no avail, but attempt to try to sign one in the buyout market or from among the list of available free agents, sources told Hoops Wire.

Meanwhile, the defending Eastern Conference champion Celtics are also looking to add depth to the wing position as they look to make a run toward a title.
