The National Basketball Association is cranking up their 2022-2023 season with media day underway.
The NBA has undergone a new wave where more players change teams every off-season, like musical chairs, to compete for a ring. One of those players with new threads is former Tar Heel Danny Green, who will be playing for the Memphis Grizzlies this season.
Green was traded from the 76ers to Memphis for the No.23 overall pick and DeAnthony Melton. Green experience will be significant for the Grizzlies with his championship experience, winning rings with the San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, and L.A. Lakers.
Green was all smiles for Memphis media day, talking about his excitement about joining the Memphis Grizzlies.
“I was excited,” Green said. “Blessed to be a part of an organization while rehabbing. My goal is always to keep playing, get healthy and get back as soon as possible. I think Zach (Grizzlies G.M.) and Memphis believed in me that I can get back and be able to play effectively when it matters.”
Green is expected to rehab most of the season, recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in game six of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Green was recorded this past August getting shots up on the court just three months after the surgery.
