One of the league’s premier 3-and-D players, Green averaged 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game during the regular season, while shooting a career-best 45.5 percent from three-point range. Green also played outstanding defence and just missed out on NBA All-Defensive Team honours.

It will be Green’s third team in as many years, joining the Raptors after being traded from the San Antonio Spurs alongside Kawhi Leonard. Green waited until Leonard made his decision, and once it was reported that the reigning Finals MVP would join the Los Angeles Clippers, the sharpshooter revealed his choice to join the Lakers.
