Green played for the Wizards in 2018-19, marking his eighth team over an 11-year NBA career. The 32-year-old played in 77 games, starting 44 of them. He averaged 12.3 points per contest. Encouragingly, Green played 27.2 minutes per night, which was his highest mark since the 2015-16 season. The veteran continued to do most of his damage inside the arc, shooting a career-best 58.6 percent from two-point range. He also made 1.4 three-pointers per game on 34.7 percent shooting from deep. It was the first time Green averaged more than one made three-pointer per game since 2014-15. He also kept up his strong work at the free-throw line, shooting better than 86.3 percent at the stripe for the third straight year. Green also chipped in 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. Green has established himself as a reliable veteran presence, having played in 860 regular-season games (541 starts), seeing 25,819 minutes. Green's Wizards finished at 32-50 and did not qualify for the post-season.2017
Green signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2017-2018 season. He played in 78 games and made 13 starts. For the regular season, he averaged 10.8 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. On April 6 he scored a season-high 33 points against the Philadelphia 76ers. He handed out a season-high five assists as part of a 130-122 victory over the Washington Wizards on Nov. 3. Green matched that total with another five assists in another win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Jan. 2. Following the regular season, he played in 22 playoff games and made two starts. It was the most playoff games in one season played by Green in his career. He averaged 7.7 points per game in the playoffs. On May 27 he started Game 7 against the Boston Celtics and contributed a playoff-high 19 points.2016
Green signed a one-year deal with the Orlando Magic on the first day of free agency in 2016. He made his Magic debut on Opening Night, Oct. 26 against Miami, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds as Orlando fell by 12. Three days later against Cleveland, Green recorded his only double-double of the season. He put up 10 points (2-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and 10 rebounds to help Orlando keep things close in a six-point loss. Perhaps Green's best game for the Magic came in a Dec. 6 matchup against Washington, when he scored 20 points and grabbed three rebounds to help Orlando win by eight. The injury bug bit late in the year, however, as Green missed the final 11 games of the season with back spasms. He ended his time with the Magic having averaged 9.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 69 games. He was oddly more productive off the bench than in the starting five, at least in the scoring department, averaging 9.6 points as a reserve. Green's per-36 numbers -- 15.0 points and 5.0 rebounds -- were right in line with his career averages, however.2015
Jeff Green started the 2015-16 season in Memphis, averaging 12,2 points and 4.5 rebounds in the 53 games he played for the Grizzlies that year. Perhaps his best game for the Grizz came in one of his last, a 30-point, eight-rebound showing on Jan. 25 against the Orlando Magic. Green found himself on the move again at the 2016 trade deadline, this time to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clips sent Lance Stephenson and a protected first-round pick to Memphis in exchange for Green. The journeyman forward quickly made an impression on his new teammates. In just his fourth game as a Clipper, a Feb. 26 matchup against Sacramento, Green scored 22 points and grabbed five rebounds, helping Los Angeles win by 10. Green played in six playoff games that year as the Clippers fell to the Portland Trail Blazers in first round. He averaged 10.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in that series.2014
Green started the 2014-15 season off with a bang. In just his third game of the year, in an Oct. 29 matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, the forward scored 35 points for Boston and grabbed seven rebounds, to go along with two assists and a steal. He averaged 17.6 points per game through his first 33 games with the Celtics, on pace for a per-game career high. On Nov. 19 Green registered his lone double-double of the season with 11 points, 10 rebounds and two assists during a win at Phily. In January, Green was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a three-team deal that sent Tayshaun Prince, Austin Rivers and a first round pick to Boston. Green joined the Grizzlies right in the middle of their "Grit and Grind" days -- with Zac Randolph and Mike Conley gearing the Grizzlies towards a major playoff run. In just his second game as a Grizzly, a Jan. 16 matchup against Orlando, Green scored 21 points, adding five rebounds and two assists as his new team took down the Magic. He played in all of Memphis' 11 playoff games, with two starts, as the team eliminated the Portland Trail Blazers in Round 1 before falling to eventual NBA Champion Golden State in Round 2. Green averaged 8.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists per postseason contest.2013
Green played in all 82 games in the 2013-14 season, a remarkable achievement considering his open heart surgery from two years prior. He came out of the gate on fire, scoring 25 points and five rebounds on Opening Night, Oct. 30, against Toronto. Green had some eye-popping performances that season, including a 31-point, five-rebound showing in a win over Cleveland on Nov. 29. Green recorded his only two double doubles of the season in consecutive games on Jan. 8 and 10. The first: a 15-point, 11-rebound showing against the Los Angeles Clippers. At Golden State two days later, he scored 24 points and again compiled 11 rebounds. Those two instances were Green's highest rebounding totals of the year. On Feb. 5 against Philadelphia, Green scored 36 points while grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out two assists, helping the Celtics win by six. His season high in scoring was 39, however, and Green hit that mark twice: Jan. 22 against Washington and March 16 against New Orleans. When it was all said and done, Green had accumulated a new career high in scoring at 16.9 ppg. HIs per-36 mark of 17.7 ppg was also the best in his career.2012
Green started the 2012-13 season with a clean bill of health and played in 81 games for the Celtics. After shaking off the rust of his 2011-12 absence (heart issues), Green showed he had returned to his old self on Nov. 30 with 19 points and three rebounds against Portland. That was the start of an offensive burst which saw Green average 14.3 points over eight straight games. He was dominant in a Feb. 22 win over Phoenix and posted 31 points and seven rebounds. Green closed the season on a tear, which included a 43- point, seven-rebound showing against Miami on Mar.18. On Mar. 26 against New York, Green put together his only double-double of the season, a 19-point, 10-rebound effort. The veteran power forwarded improved his play in the postseason, when he started all six playoff games for Boston versus the Knicks. He tallied 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 three-pointers per playoff contest.2011
Green missed the entire 2011-2012 season with an aortic root aneurysm, discovered by doctors at a routine physical before the start of the season. He underwent surgery and then endured a 9-month long recovery process.2010
Jeff Green started the season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and came out firing -- scoring 21 points and grabbing 4 rebounds in an 11 point win over the Chicago Bulls on Opening Night. Green averaged over 15 points and almost six rebounds in 49 games for the Thunder. At the February trade deadline, Green was sent to the Boston Celtics alongside Nenad Krstic in exchange for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson. On Mar. 4, in his fourth game for the Celtics, Green scored 21 points and swiped the ball twice in a win over the Warriors. Green suited up for nine playoff games for the Celtics that season, averaging over seven points and three assists as the team made it to the second round of the NBA Playoffs. Green's best playoff showing that year came on Apr. 22 against the Celtics' first round opponent, the New York Knicks. He scored nine points and added four rebounds as Boston won Game 3 of that series by 17 points.2009
Green played in all 82 games in the 2009-10 season, starting every time. He showed out on Opening Night, an Oct. 23 contest against the Sacramento Kings. Green scored 24 points and grabbed seven rebounds as the Thunder won by 13. Less than a week later against the Portland Trail Blazers, Green recorded the first of his 11 double doubles from that season, scoring 19 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. Perhaps Green's best game of the season came on Feb. 21 against Minnesota, when he scored 17 points and pulled in 14 rebounds to go along with three steals. Following a regular season in which he averaged 15.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 steals per contest, Green made his first six career appearances in the NBA Playoffs, averaging 11.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game as the Thunder fell to the Los Angeles Lakers in a six-game opening round series.2008
Green moved with the Sonics from Seattle ahead of the 2008-09 season, remaining with the same franchise while donning the new uniform of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The change of cities didn't affect Green's development, as he grew his production significantly across the board. Green added six full points and two full rebounds onto his rookie-season averages, giving him 16.5 points and 6.7 boards per game along with 1.0 steals. He improved his efficiency from every part of the court, but especially from behind the three-point line. After making 0.3 threes per game at a 27.6 percent rate in his rookie year, Green found his touch as a sophomore, making 1.2 threes per game at a shining 38.9 percent clip. He scored 20-plus points on 25 occasions, topping out with a 33-point performance Dec. 14 against the Spurs. Green also racked up 13 double-doubles, including a 27-point performance with a career-high 15 rebounds against the Warriors on Feb. 21.2007
The fifth pick in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Celtics, Green was the centerpiece of Boston's trade for Ray Allen ahead of the 2007-08 season. He stepped into a major role for Seattle as a rookie, starting 52 times among 80 appearances and providing 10.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.2 combined steals/blocks per game. The Georgetown product scored 19 points in his sixth NBA game, Nov. 9 against Utah. He went on to score 20-plus points five times -- including a 35-point, 10-rebound outburst against Denver on Apr. 6. Green also double-doubled another three times on the year, recording a season-high 14 rebounds twice in the process. For his efforts, Green made the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
