Former Houston Rockets guard Danny Green posted a four-word message to his Twitter account on Sunday amid rumors of him finalizing a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“It’s not done yet…” Green wrote.
Danny Green last played for the Cavs in the 2009-10 season, when he averaged two points, 0.9 rebounds and a 27.3% 3-point percentage. He was selected with the 46th overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft after spending four seasons with the North Carolina Tar Heels, joining Cavs forward LeBron James in dance-offs on the sidelines during his rookie season.
Green shared his thoughts on how James matured as a player in an early-2022 interview with Sixers Wire.
“He was a big kid back then,” Danny Green said. “He’s still a big kid, but he’s a lot more professional. He understands he could win games, but he knew how to win, I guess after coming back from Miami because he figured out found out the formula of the right way to do things and know how to win.
“So when he came from there, I think he took those principles and brought it with him back to Cleveland and to LA, but his IQ. His memory’s always been the same. He’s got a high IQ. He watches a lot more film. With that maturity of him taking it more professionally and the small details of doing things.”

Danny Green rejoined James when he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers for a two-year, $30 million contract in 2019. He thanked his podcast fans and fans in Toronto when he posted an announcement video to his Twitter account in July 2019.
“I would just like to announce I’m proudly, and let everyone know, I’m excited for the next two years that I will be teaming up with my new teammates in L.A., the Los Angeles Lakers,” Green said. “Looking forward to playing with those guys. Should be great.”
