Rockets Re-Sign Gerald Green

JULY 22: The Rockets have made it official with Green over three weeks after agreeing to terms, announcing today (via Twitter) that the swingman has officially re-signed with the club.

JUNE 30: The Rockets will re-sign free agent Gerald Green on a one-year deal, his agent, James Dunleavy, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

Green, 33, has spent the last two seasons with the Rockets. In 2018/19, he averaged 9.2 PPG and 2.5 RPG in 73 games (20.2 MPG), with a shooting line of .400/.354/.838. Of his 578 shot attempts, 441 came from beyond the arc.

While terms of Green’s deal aren’t yet known, he played on a minimum-salary deal last season, so another one looks like a strong possibility.

Because he’s re-signing with his current team on a one-year contract, Green will have the ability to veto any trade that involves him during the 2019/20 league year. If he approves a trade, he would lose his Bird rights for 2020.

    Gerald green is a selfish shooter when he has the ball by taking every three possible

      Well then, between Green’s copious number of threes, Harden’s incessant, unnecessary dribbling, Harden always pushing off defenders, Harden’s consistent complaining, Harden’s seizures as he tries to draw shooting fouls, and Chris Paul’s moaning and groaning as he watches Harden flail, dribble, and flop the Rockets should be completely unpredictable and a ton of fun to watch!!!

      I know I personally cannot wait!!

        I’m still trying to fully ingest what this means, but I’m happy that you know yourself personally.
