Danny Green Called Up To Spurs From D-League's Reno Bighorns

New, 3 comments

The Spurs have been shuffling D-League players in and out since the Showcase with Larry Owens, Steve Novak and Othyus Jeffers all spending time in San Antonio, but it seems that will all come to a close with their latest call-up.

Ridiculous Upside has confirmed Reno Bighorns guard -- and former North Carolina Tar Heel basketballer -- Danny Green has signed with the Spurs for the remainder of the season as first reported by former FanHouse colleague Sam Amick (this just feels right with March Madness getting underway tonight, no?).

Green, a 6-foot-6 shooting specialist, averaged 20.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while connecting on 36 of his 83 three-point attempts during his 16 game stay in the D-League. Green's best game in the D-League came this past weekend as he led the Bighorns with 36 points and eight rebounds while making 5-of-8 from beyond the arc.

It shouldn't be all that surprising that the Spurs would bring Green aboard for the rest of the season considering that he actually began the season in San Antonio before being released in favor of a third point guard in Chris Quinn.

The loaded Bighorns will more than likely replace Green in the starting lineup with (fellow/former?) Spur Bobby Simmons.
