Wednesday, it was C.J. McCollum, who said the chances of LeBron James signing with the Philadelphia 76ers if he declines a $35.6 million player option and becomes a free agent are higher than anyone expects.
Now, it’s Danny Green’s turn.
The San Antonio Spurs guard, appearing the “In the Zone” podcast with Chris Broussard, said James would be a perfect addition to the Spurs.
“Obviously, they’ll make it work. They’ll find a way, I’m sure,” Green said. “I think he’ll fit in perfectly.”
Green, who was a teammate of James as a rookie in the last season of James’ first tenure with the Cavaliers in 2009-10, believes James and the Spurs would be a good match.
“For him, not just us, but any team where they have good coaching or a good organization or a good surrounding or a good foundation, I think we’ll take him in and a win a lot of games and also be a contender,” he said.
“He himself can make any team a contender. Being in the Spurs organization, obviously with (Spurs coach Gregg Popovich), and depending on who they’ll be able to keep… ”
Green, who averaged 2.0 points in 5.8 minutes in 20 games with James in Cleveland in 2009-10, said LeBron, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge would form a potent triumvirate.
“If they can still keep Kawhi and LMA and those foundational pieces, it would be interesting to see.”
