His Agent, Michael Hodges, says he's looking at two offers, including a sign and trade, for his client, but believes the Grizzlies are "going in a different direction."
The 27-year-old 6'9" forward is trying to make the best of a rags-(hopefully)-to-riches story. Undrafted out of Alabama, Green was signed out of the D-League by Memphis a year ago.
He earned a starting berth over veteran Zach Randolph this past season as the Grizzlies transition toward the new 3-and-D NBA.
Green averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds per game last season, and proved he could stretch the floor, hitting right at 38% from the 3-point line.
Green made $2.16 million last year..He could be in line for a multi-year contract that could pay him between $10 and $15 million per season.
