SF Danny Green staying with Spurs
Small forward Danny Green will apparently be staying with the Spurs. He has signed a four-year deal worth $45 million with San Antonio, a source has told CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger. Green averaged a career-best 11.1 points per game last season and has proven to be an ideal fit in a Gregg Popovich offense that stresses ball and player movement and mid-range shooting. He had expressed an interest in meeting with the Knicks, but his current team apparently beat them to the punch.

Spurs' Jarell Eddie following Danny Green career path
Austin Spurs forward Jarell Eddie is modeling his career patch on current Spurs guard Danny Green, Spurs.com reports. "I look at the way Danny rose up in the Spurs organization, and the way he can knock down shots, but also does the little things," Eddie said last week. "I look at him, and I know what I have to do to make it myself." Eddie has made 42.2 percent of his three-point attempts and won the NBA Development League Three-Point Contest in February. "Shooting's a premium at the NBA level," Eddie said. "With the release that I have and the size that I have, I've always had the mindset the I'm an NBA player. Now, it's clear that if you keep working in the D-League, someone will spot you." Green indicated that the intangibles picked up in the NBADL have helped him make a leap. "It lights a fire under you to see what it really takes to make it to the NBA," Green said. "So you spend that extra time picking up things defensively. I feel like I'm the guy they look at a lot of times because I just worked really hard and can shoot the ball. Us D-League guys didn't have the easiest path, but it's a path that's worth taking."

Spurs' Danny Green: 'We're not the happy fun team we were last year'
With the Spurs not nearly as competitive as they were last season when they were the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs, guard Danny Green said the team may not achieve the level of play they reached last season, reports the San Antonio Express-News. "Last year was a totally different year," Green said. "It's hard to replicate that. It might not come back to us, the way we were playing last year. We're trying to get as close to it as possible." The Spurs are currently the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference at 34-22. With the Thunder only 2 1/2 games back, Green said the team is feeling the pressure to step up their play. "We're all getting on each other, Pop's getting on us, and it's hard to play basketball when we're not the happy fun team we were last year," Green said.

Heavy minutes taking toll on Spurs forward Danny Green
Spurs forward Danny Green is averaging a career-high 30.1 minutes per game, but he admits the extra playing time has taken a toll on his energy level, reports the San Antonio Express-News. "Some days the energy is there," Green said. "Some days, you're fighting to find it." With the Spurs dealing with a variety of injuries earlier this season, Green said he didn't have a choice, but to play. "Right now is the healthiest we've been," Green said. "There are times we could have sat some guys, but we couldn't afford it. If you were healthy enough to play, you had to play." Green has gone four consecutive games without scoring at least 10 points, but he said the ups and downs are part of the season. "You can't lose confidence and change your game," Green said. "You have to stick with it, and hopefully the worm will turn."
