The Philadelphia 76ers and veteran shooting guard Danny Green have staged a reunion for the 2023-24 NBA season. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Green will sign a one-year deal with the 76ers.

Green is expected to play an important role in the 76ers’ quest to embark on a deep playoff run this upcoming season. He has been known as a great locker room presence and has familiarity with Philly’s new head coach Nick Nurse, as the two won an NBA title together with the Toronto Raptors in 2019. 

Green joined the 76ers for the first time ahead of 2020–21 season. He spent two years in Philadelphia, averaging 7.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in 131 games. His first stint with the franchise ended after he tore his ACL in the 2022 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat and was subsequently traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.

The 36-year-old split the last season between the Grizzlies and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He suited up for a total of 11 games, averaging 5.5 points.

Green became notable for his postseason success throughout his NBA career. He played at least one game in every playoffs since 2011, being only one of three players alongside James Harden and Chris Paul to do that. The North Babylon native has three NBA titles on his resume, winning rings with the San Antonio Spurs, the Raptors, and the Los Angeles Lakers.
