Danny Green became another of the Spurs' many effective role players in the 2011-12 season. For his part in getting San Antonio the Western Conference's best record for the second straight season, he'll be rewarded: Yahoo!'s Marc Spears reports that the Spurs will sign Green to a three-year, $12 million contract.
Green struggled to find his footing in his first two years in the NBA with the Cavaliers in 2009-10 and the Spurs in 2010-11 — he played in just eight games in his first year with San Antonio, and managed to earn just 92 minutes.
But in his second year as a player under Gregg Popovich, Green blossomed in a big way. He became an efficient scorer (9.1 points on 7.2 shots per game) and a lethal sniper (43.6 percent shooting from beyond the arc) in the Spurs' fluid offense.
