RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

A journeyman forward, Green has spent time with six NBA teams and also played in Russia for two seasons. For someone of his experience, he is still a relatively young man at 27 years old. Having never started more than 26 games in a season, the 6-8 swingman should be expected to log at least 20 minutes per contest. Limited range on his jumper has prevented Green from becoming the star he was expected to become as a first-round draft pick of the Celtics. He must improve upon his 31 percent shooting from long range to earn and keep a starting position.

2012-13

The Pacers are believers in Green, handing him a three-year contract. After he played himself out of the NBA three years ago, Green re-surfaced last season in New Jersey, and appears to have used his exile to become a better professional, showing a better outside shot than wed seen before. Its hard to tell if Green is a team-first convert who shed his individualistic ways, or if he was merely able to thrive on a Nets team that wasnt very good. Well certainly learn this season, as the Pacers want him to be the first wing off the bench.

2008-09

The former dunk champion was brought in to give the team athleticism and youth and could end up playing heavy minutes if his basketball IQ can improve. Green looked impressive in the Rocky Mountain Revue averaging 17.7 points en route to earning All-Revue honors. After having stumbled in Boston, Minnesota and Houston, this may be Green's last shot at proving he's an NBA-caliber player.

2007-08

Green has the opportunity to break out in Minnesota this season. He is currently one of several young swing men on the Wolves, including Corey Brewer and Rashad McCants, competing for playing time behind Ricky Davis. The Kevin Garnett trade suggests that the Wolves are in a full-blown youth movement rebuild, though, so it is likely that Green has a chance to grab a starting spot even ahead of a vet like Davis. Green averaged almost 16 points and 1.8 treys per game in 26 starts with the Celtics last season, and with his athletic ability one would expect him to eventually improve on the 3.6 boards per game he grabbed as a starter. Hes definitely worthy of mid-to-late round sleeper status.

2006-07

Green's numbers from last season are not all that impressive, but his per 48 are. The rookie guard averaged 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists for every full game he played last season and is very likely to improve upon his 11.8 minutes a night this season. If he can grab 20-25 minutes there will be some significant ownership across most fantasy formats.

2005-06

Danny Ainge has shown he is not afraid of taking high school players and was stunned to see Green there at 18. He only worked out for seven teams and all were picking in the top 10. Green's athleticism, quickness, ball-handling skills, ability to penetrate and deep range on his jumpshot has drawn him favorable comparisons to Tracy McGrady or Reggie Lewis. Doubters will question his weight (200 pounds) and maturity, but that is most always the case with high school players. Green should progress well under Doc Rivers, who succesfully integrated fellow high-schoolers Al Jefferson and Kedrick Perkins into a playoff rotation.
