Green registered 17 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 120-105 loss to the Clippers. Green has scored in double digits in three of his seven games with the Rockets so far, and he seems to be settling nicely as an option off the bench for head coach Mike D'Antoni. His scoring figures might be a bit inconsistent on a nightly basis, but he has enough talent to light up the scoreboard any time he steps on the hardwood. He'll need to do it on a consistent basis to gain more fantasy value, though.
Green and the Rockets agreed to a contract Tuesday that will keep him in Houston for the remainder of the season, Jordan Schultz of ESPN.com reports. Green's 10-day deal wasn't set to expire until after Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, but Houston apparently won't waste any time keeping the veteran in the fold for the rest of 2019-20. Since joining the team over the All-Star break, Green quickly has captured a meaningful role off the bench. In his first three games with Houston, Green is averaging 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 17.7 minutes.
Green logged 17 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and a steal across 24 minutes in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors. The Rockets represent Green's ninth team in his 12-year career, but the journeyman may be just what the doctor ordered in Houston. The newly signed 6-foot-9 forward can play a reserve role and shore up the undersized frontcourt employed by Houston moving forward. The big surprise in Green's debut was a much-improved three-point stroke.
Green will make his Rockets debut Thursday against the Warriors, Craig Ackerman of the Rockets' radio network reports. Green signed a 10-day contract with Houston during the All-Star break and will add some size to a Rockets roster that is currently embracing playing without a true center. The veteran has shot 33.3-percent from long range over the course of his career and should be a welcome addition to the league's most prolific three-point shooting team.
Green plans to sign a 10-day deal with the Rockets on Tuesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Green is expected to join Houston in the coming days after being waived by the Jazz back in December. Across 30 games this season, Green is averaging 7.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.4 minutes. He'll likely serve as a depth option in the frontcourt for Houston.
