The 10-year veteran signed with Milwaukee last month just before training camp opened. Green’s deal was non-guaranteed, so the Bucks won’t owe him anything. He will now go on waivers and will be free to sign with any team if he is not claimed.
Green played 47 games for the Celtics last season, averaging 5.6 points in 11.4 minutes per night. A first-round pick in 2005, the 31-year-old has experienced a journeyman career, never spending more than two straight seasons with the same team. He has also played for the Timberwolves, Rockets, Mavericks, Nets, Pacers, Suns and Heat.
The move gives the Bucks flexibility as they now have 14 players on their roster, one below the league limit. Milwaukee is the only team in the league without at least one two-way contract.
