Damn it, guys. The best free agent left on the market has decided to take his talents to Russia. (Pro Basketball Talk)
Insanely athletic players like Gerald Green tend to get more NBA chances than most, but for the second straight year Green will ply his trade in Russia. According to the team page for BC Krasnye Krylia (via Inside Hoops), Green has been signed by the club after playing for Lokomotiv Kuban last year.
I’m so pissed. I always thought Gerald Green was the perfect answer to Lebron and Dwyane Wade. He’s just as athletic as all those guys, he can shoot from outside and he has all the tools to be one hell of a defender. I’ve thought all along that the Celtics should have scooped him up as their answer to the SuperFriends. He would have been cheap and he has enormous upside.
P.S. – I’m just kidding, guys. When it comes to basketball, Gerald Green is illiterate.
