Lakers officially sign guard Danny Green to two-year deal

The dominos begin to fall as Danny Green announces he is signing with the LA Lakers shortly after news breaks of Kawhi Leonard signing with the Clippers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed free-agent guard Danny Green. The contract is for a two-years and $30-million, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Dallas Mavericks were said to be interested in Green before he eventually agreed to join the Lakers, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Green had stated he was waiting to make a free agency decision until Kawhi Leonard had made up his mind as to where he would play next. With Leonard reportedly joining the Clippers, they’ll end up in Los Angeles together after all, albeit for different teams.

Last season for the Toronto Raptors, Green averaged 10.3 points on 45.5 per cent shooting from long-range to go along with four rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
