Danny Green

The 10-year veteran, two-time champion and longtime foe of the Rockets as a member of the San Antonio Spurs would be a perfect system fit with Houston.

A career 40.4% three-point shooter, Danny Green is the ultimate catch-and-shoot player.

Although former Rockets’ assistant coach Jeff Bzdelik will no longer be with the team, Green’s defensive ability and versatility would make him a great fit with any defensive system that Houston chooses to go with.

Green was a big piece to Toronto’s team as they were on their way to their first-ever championship in franchise history.

Although the Rockets are well known for their volume shooting of threes under coach Mike D’antoni, Houston has never had a specialty sharpshooter and Green would provide just that.
