The acquisition of Danny Green has seemed to fly under the radar of a majority of fans around the association. On draft night, Green was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies alongside the draft rights to David Roddy in exchange for De’Anthony Melton.
Most media outlets’ main focus was how good of a pickup Melton was for Philadelphia, while Grizzlies fans could not help but question who would make up the electric guard’s production going into next season.
What should the Memphis Grizzlies do with Danny Green in 2022-23?
When Danny Green’s name was brought up, the impression that most around the league had was that he would eventually be bought out, similar to what the front office has done with aging vets on expiring contracts acquired by trade in the past.
When asked about Danny Green’s future involvement with the team on June 24, Grizzlies general manager Zach Kleiman stated that Danny’s future involvement with the team was “TBD.”
This ominous perspective of Green staying in Memphis somewhat shifted in early July when he was spotted sitting courtside at a Grizzlies summer league game next to Kleiman, Head Coach Taylor Jenkins, Ja Morant, and Tyus Jones.
The fact of the matter is that the Grizzlies currently have 18 players on the roster (not counting training camp invites), which is one greater than the maximum number of players allowed. This means that there is still one subtraction that has to be made from the squad before opening night on October 19.
With that being said, let’s dive into some of the pros and cons of whether or not Danny Green should remain a member of the Memphis Grizzlies next season.
