Gerald Green Signs With Mavs For (Perhaps) Once Last Chance in the NBA

Enough of this All-Star, max deal, every franchise making phone calls crap. Let's get down to some real, life-and-death free agent stuff. ↵

↵For anyone who closely follows the NBA and is loathe to give up on anyone under the age of 25, Gerald Green has remained a subject of some interest. And now, he's getting yet another chance to make good on his potential, this time with the Mavs. Not clear how much he signed for, but it's believed to be one year. ↵
↵
↵Off-the-charts athleticism, three-point range, some qualities of a poor man's T-Mac, the talent of this high school draftee is undeniable. During his time in Boston and subsequent stint in Minny, Green proved himself capable of, if nothing else, scoring off the bench. But he then ended up in his hometown of Houston, where he was let go after a few practices, and then ended the season without a team after being considered by the Nets. Word has it that he either doesn't respond to coaching or is just really dumb. ↵
↵
↵Dallas is hoping he's "the next Brandon Bass," which at least suggests they're willing to make a point of getting him opportunities. It's not a stretch to say, though, that if Green messes this one up, or things just don't work out, he'll be forced into overseas exile.↵
