In 2020-21, Danny Green made 175 3-pointers for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Fun fact: Green’s 3.67 DRPM ranks eight overall league-wide, with the next Sixer, Embiid, coming in at 17th overall with a 2.98.
If that’s all Green brought to the table – 9.5 points, good defense, and 2.5 made 3s a game – it would be enough to call his addition as a fifth starter an unquestioned success and a fit upgrade over both Al Horford and Josh Richardson, but fortunately, that wasn’t the case.
Whether on the bench or in the starting lineup, Green is seemingly always cracking jokes and giving advice to his teammates, and as the team’s fourth oldest player, he brings a wealth of experience to young guards looking to find their NBA footing.
