    [Fox 26] Gerald Green to Join Dallas Mavericks

    http://www.myfoxhouston.com/myfox/p...n=1&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=TSTY&pageId=6.1.1

    HOUSTON -- Free agent guard Gerald Green has agreed to a one-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks. Green, a first round pick of the Boston Celtics in 2005, was part of the trade that sent Kevin Garnett from Minnesota to Boston. The Timberwolves traded Green to Houston last season. He played in one game for his home town team before being released.

    Green was the NBA Slam-Dunk Champion at the 2007 All-Star Game.

    "We have a verbal agreement with Dallas on a one year contract," said Colin Bryant, Green's agent in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. "We talked to a number of teams and there is more money out there, but this is the best situation for Gerald at this point in his career."

    Green went from high school to the NBA. He played at Gulf Shores Academy in Houston.

    Bryant believes the Mavericks coaching staff can help Green build a solid foundation.

    "With (Head) Coach (Rick) Carlisle and Mario Elie, they will be vital to Gerald's development," Bryant said. "Playing for the Mavericks will help elevate his game."

    Elie is a Mavericks assistant coach.

    In three years in the NBA Green has averaged 8.1 points and 1.8 rebounds a game.

    WTF... :mad: :eek: :confused: :rolleyes: :eek: :(

    It most likely will. Cuban probably doesn't care about his attitude or whatever his problem is.

    The rap in Green is that he has unbelievable athletic ability, outstanding talent, and a nice shot, but he is unable to grasp defensive philosophy and defensive rotations.

    Wasn't he still in high school for the 2005 playoffs?!!? I guess Dallas is close to home so that's why he went. And theres JKidd.

    The kid goes to our worst enemy. With our luck, Gerald becomes a Rocket Killer and torches us each time we play. With J-Kidd running the break and Green on the wings, this is a good situation for him.

    the guy didn't last a month here.

    he didn't get picked up by anyone before the season ended.

    i don't think the rockets are losing out on anything great here.

    I was really pulling for Green, hoping that he would eventually put it all together...

    but he's a maverick now and all that goes out the window. Here's to a year hating Gerald Green. :p
