According to James Herbert of CBS Sports, Danny Green thinks that things are changing in San Antonio and the Spurs won’t be the same.
Danny Green’s future in San Antonio is in question right now, but Green would like to stay in a Spurs uniform after free agency is all said and done. However, Green sees change brewing and he had this to say about the team (via Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News):
“It hasn’t sunk in yet, but this is a special group,” he said. “That’s why it sucks so bad, especially for Timmy (Duncan) and Manu (Ginobili). We had an opportunity to do something special for them. All I can do is hope and pray for another group like that in the future, but I have a feeling some of those guys will be back. R.C. and Pop do a great job of bringing in new guys.”
“Hopefully, I’ll be back,” he said. “I love San Antonio. The fans have always supported us, from day one. It sucks that we had such a special group, and things may be changing and not be the same again.”
Danny Green has had a huge impact on this Spurs team when they went to the finals two years in a row. He has been the most consistent three point shooter and a great defensive force for them as well. This postseason, however, was different in terms of how he played. He was very inconsistent against the Los Angeles Clippers, but he did have a big performance in game seven.
Green, who is only 28 years old, could get some big money from some other teams. Although, players in San Antonio have been known to take a pay cut so they can bring in the guys necessary to win a title. There are only five players under contract next season. Tony Parker, Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, and Kyle Anderson are sure to come back. Kawhi Leonard will most likely be re-signed, but no one knows if Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have another year in the tank.
Whether Duncan and Ginobili come back or not, coach Pop and company will be sure to bring in the necessary help to get this team further in the postseason.
