Sixers Officially Waive Danny Green

Someone needed to go as a result of the multiplayer trade that sent James Harden and P.J. Tucker to the Clippers and brought four veterans to the 76ers.Danny Green

It turned out to be Sixers guard Danny Green, who now has been officially waived, per the NBA transactions log.

Green, 36, appeared in two games with the Sixers this season, failing to score, after re-signing with the team this past offseason.

He spent last season with the Cavaliers, averaging 6.5 points and shooting 45 percent on 3-pointers in eight games. He also played for the Sixers from 2020-22, as well as served stints with the Raptors, Lakers, Grizzlies and most notably the Spurs.

Green is currently 39th on the all-time NBA 3-point list with 1,577 career-made threes. He is also ninth in career playoff 3-point field goals with 315 made threes in the postseason.

His previous connection to the 76ers’ organization and new head coach Nick Nurse, who he won a championship with in 2019, is the main reason for the team welcoming him back. Throughout Green’s career, he has established himself as a reliable role player who can make open shots and play solid defense on winning teams. 

Green will become an unrestricted free agent upon clearing waivers on Friday.
