While he may not be the elite two-way wing he once was with the San Antonio Spurs, Danny Green is still an effective role player for any team with playoff aspirations. He proved that down the final stretch of the season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. This makes him the perfect target for the Washington Wizards.

For years, Danny Green has been one of the best three-point shooters in the league and for a long time was near the top of the pecking order on defense as well. As he has gotten older and gone through various injuries, he has lost some of his quickness, but remains a great shooter and smart defender.

With his championship pedigree, Danny green could help mentor the Washington Wizards

Green has been to four NBA championships with three different franchises. He has won in three of those appearances. On top of just knowing how to win, he has also played with some of the greatest players in the league during his career. Players such as Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis have all shared the court with the sharpshooter.

He has also played under some of the greatest minds in basketball. He has played for Gregg Popovich, Mike Brown, Nick Nurse, and Taylor Jenkins. Three of those coaches have won at least one Coach of the Year award and Jenkins is likely to win one eventually.

Bringing all this experience and knowledge to a locker room featuring numerous young players looking to make a name for themselves would be invaluable for the Wizards. He could even help head coach Wes Unseld Jr improve as a coach, something that would cause Wiz fans to rejoice.

What makes it even better is the fact that the three-time NBA champion is likely to be available for the veteran minimum. A low price for the valuable experience he brings to the table.

The Washington Wizards would benefit from signing the tenured NBA veteran. Making this decision could be one of the best decisions they could make this offseason.
