Dwyane Wade stumps for Jeff Green after latest contract

Dwyane Wade Heat

Jeff Green found a new team this week when he agreed to a one-year deal with the Utah Jazz.

The former No. 5 overall pick in the 2007 draft will be playing on a one-year contract for the minimum for the third year in a row, and that bothers Dwyane Wade.

Wade, who played with Green for a season on the 2017-2018 Cleveland Cavaliers, tweeted Tuesday night that he could not understand the lack of a market for Green.

Green will be 33 when the season starts and is not that good of a 3-point shooter (33.3 percent for his career), contrary to what Wade believes. Green is older, not that valuable, and teams would rather have guys who have more upside. That is the reason he keeps having one-year deals for the minimum. But the fact that he keeps getting these deals proves the other points Wade brought up, and that is that Green is still good enough where you want him if you need to fill a roster spot.

Maybe this is the sort of commentary we can expect from Wade now that he’s retired.
