Former Rockets F Jeff Green agreed to a one-year, veteran-minimum contract with the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, per Shams Charania.
Green was a valuable rotation piece for Houston in the 2019-2020 postseason, averaging 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds. The veteran forward joins a star-powered Brooklyn Nets team lead by Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving but doesn't carry much fantasy value except in deeper formats.
Jeff Green played a significant role off the bench for the Rockets, scoring 22 points (8-13 FG, 5-8 3PT, 1-2 FT) while grabbing seven rebounds, handing out three assists, and collecting two blocks, one steal in 38 minutes of play in a 119-107 loss in Game 3 on Saturday night.
Green's been a revelation for the Rockets off the bench and has the 'green light' to fire at will. He hit a career playoff-high five triples tonight and continues to play some of his best basketball in years. Green's fitting in well in the Rockets small-ball lineup, acting as a versatile PF/C that can stretch the floor while still attacking the rim. His play is deserving of a look in DFS, as he's averaging 19.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 3.7 three's per contest while shooting 60.9% through three games of the first-round series against the Thunder.
Jeff Green came up big for the Rockets once again on Thursday, chipping in 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3PT), seven rebounds and three turnovers across 37 minutes off the bench during the Rockets' 111-98 victory over the Thunder on Thursday.
Green was effective for the second straight game for Houston and he has been rewarded with heavy minutes as a result. The 33-year-old vet has been averaging nearly 35 minutes per game during the first part of the series and that should continue as long as Russell Westbrook (quad) remains out. Due to his effectiveness and playing time, Green will be a sneaky value in daily fantasy for Game 3.
Jeff Green was huge for the Rockets on Tuesday, racking up 22 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 FT, 3-7 3PT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal during 32 minutes off the bench during the Rockets' 123-108 victory over the Thunder in Game 1.
The 33-year-old vet played some valuable minutes for Houston on Tuesday, trailing only James Harden for the team lead in scoring. He has now scored in double-figures in all but one game in Orlando and should continue seeing heavy minutes throughout the playoffs. Green will look to stay in rhythm for Game 2 on Thursday.
Jeff Green scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting during Friday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Green also had four rebounds, one assist, and one block during the loss to the 76ers.
Green has played very well during the NBA restart scoring in double digits in all, but one game since the NBA resumed play. The Rockets would love some consistency from Green, as they do not have too much scoring behind James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Green should have a good opportunity to continue playing well against the Oklahoma City Thunder as the Rockets will play them during the first round of the NBA playoffs.
