2019 Fantasy Outlook
Green, who appeared in only 66 games due to injuries, is coming off the lowest usage season of his career (13.1%). That was reflected in four-year lows in points (7.4), rebounds (7.3) and assists (6.9) per game. His three-point shooting also continued to slide, as Green's 28.5 percent mark represented the third straight year of decreased efficiency from beyond the arc. But much of Green's value comes on defense. He was selected to his fifth All-Defensive team, averaging a combined 2.5 steals/blocks. And Green's declining offensive stats can probably be attributed to the presence of Kevin Durant over the past three seasons. With Durant now in Brooklyn and Klay Thompson out for much of 2019-20 due to a torn ACL, Green's usage could vault back up to 2015-16 levels. That season marked Green's first All-NBA selection, and he averaged 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists, a combined 2.9 steals/blocks and 1.2 made threes. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

For the majority of Green's freshman season at Michigan State, the burly 6-foot-7 forward did not see much playing time. He averaged just 3.3 points and 3.3 rebounds, but there were flickers of potential in the Spartans' run to the championship game in the NCAA Tournament. Green had 16 points in the first-round win and grabbed 10 boards in the Elite Eight against Louisville. He continued to come off the bench as a sophomore but put up 9.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists to win Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year. Michigan State returned to the Final Four and Green averaged 8.8 points and 6.4 rebounds in the run. The Michigan native started 27 games as a junior and submitted a pair of triple-doubles, including 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the first-round NCAA Tournament loss to UCLA. As a senior, Green provided 16.2 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists to win Big Ten Player of the Year. He had another triple-double in the Big Dance and helped the Spartans advance to the Sweet 16. Over his four seasons in East Lansing, Green grabbed 1,094 rebounds, the most in Spartan history. He was drafted 35th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Green appeared in 43 games for the Warriors in 2019-20. He saw 28.4 minutes per game, averaging 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.4 steals. He set single-game season highs of 20 points, 17 rebounds, 16 assists, four steals and three blocks. Green arguably had his best performance of the season during an 11-point win over the Pelicans on Oct. 28. In 34 minutes, he posted 16 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 17 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals. It was one of his two triple-doubles on the season. Green also had eight double-doubles. He had 15 performances with at least 10 points, eight performances with at least 10 rebounds and six performances with at least 10 assists. He hit at least one three in 28 appearances. On the defensive end, Green had six efforts with at least three steals and four efforts with at least three blocks.

2018

Green played a key role in returning the Golden State Warriors to the NBA Finals for the fifth-straight year. He averaged 7.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 66 regular-season contests. Over the season, Green collected eight double-doubles and averaged 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks per contest. The 6-foot-7 forward ranked 21st in steals and 29th in blocks league-wide. Come playoff time, Green brought his play to another level, averaging 13.3 points, 10.1 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals per tilt. He also shot nearly 50 percent from the field. Green tallied six triple-doubles in 22 playoff contests. Green swatted five shots in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against Portland, then swiped four passes in Game 3. In Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Green notched 11 points, 19 rebounds, 13 assists, two blocks and three steals in a magnificent all-around performance. Green nearly averaged a triple-double in the Finals, which the Warriors lost in six games to the Toronto Raptors. The Michigan State product finished tied for sixth in the voting for 2019 Defensive Player of the Year.

2017

Green started 70 games for the Golden State Warriors during the 2017-2018 regular season and averaged 11.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.3 assists per contest. The assist average was a career high. In fact, Green finished seventh in the NBA in dimes. Green averaged a double-double in the first round of the playoffs against San Antonio. He followed that performance by averaging a triple-double with 14.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 10.0 assists in the Western Conference Semifinals versus New Orleans. Green tallied double-doubles in four of the last five games during the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets. He posted a mammoth stat line in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, accumulating 13 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and five steals in the 124-114 overtime victory. Green helped the Warriors win their second straight NBA Championship and their third in four years. Green was elected to his third straight All-Star game and was also sixth in voting for Defensive Player of the Year.

2016

In Green's fifth NBA season, he played in 76 games (all as a starter) and averaged 32.5 minutes per contest. The versatile forward again filled a key two-way role for the Warriors. Offensively, he averaged 10.2 points and led the team with 7.0 assists per contest. He also ranked second on the club by grabbing 7.9 rebounds per game. The Michigan State product was as effective as ever on defense, averaging 1.4 blocks and a career-best 2.0 steals -- the top mark in the NBA. After finishing second in Defensive Player of the Year voting the previous two seasons, Green captured the award for the first time. He was also named to the All-NBA Defensive First Team for the third straight season. Green captured other honors as well, including his second straight selection to the Western Conference All-Star Team and a spot on the All-NBA Third Team. He collected five triple-doubles during the campaign, including a historic 11-rebound, 10-assist, 10-steal effort against Memphis on Feb. 10. The performance marked the first triple-double in NBA history in which the player finished with less than 10 points. Green also blocked five shots in the game, and his 10 steals set a team record. In the postseason, Green posted per-game averages of 13.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.6 blocks across 17 starts. Golden State went 16-1 in the playoffs, eliminating Cleveland in five games in the Finals. Green notched double-doubles in the final two games of the series, doing his part to help the Warriors claim their second NBA Championship in three seasons.

2015

Green continued to blossom in his fourth NBA season, starting 81 games for the Warriors and averaging a career-high 34.7 minutes per contest. The 6-foot-6 forward doubled his per-game assist average to 7.4 while also registering career highs in both points (14.0) and rebounds (9.5) per contest. Green demonstrated improved shooting as well, hitting a career-best 49.0 percent of his field-goal attempts and making 38.8 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc (also the best mark of his career). Meanwhile, Green continued to play elite defense, averaging 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. As evidence of the Michigan State product's all-around excellence, he became the first player in NBA history to total at least 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists, 100 steals and 100 blocks in a single season. Green ranked second in the NBA with 13 triple-doubles, establishing a team record. On Jan. 4, he became the second Warrior in history to register a triple-double in three consecutive games with a 13-point, 15-rebound, 10-assist effort in a win over the Hornets. Green was rewarded for his excellent play with his first selection to the Western Conference All-Star Team. He also garnered All-NBA Second Team honors and made the All-Defensive First Team for the second straight season while finishing second in Defensive Player of the Year voting. Green continued his outstanding play in the postseason as Golden State advanced to the NBA Finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second year in a row. In 23 playoff contests, he averaged 15.4 points, 9.9 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 blocks. Though the Warriors fell to Cleveland in seven games in the Finals, Green put forth a massive effort in Game 7, amassing 32 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists.

2014

After showing vast potential as a sophomore, Green was moved into the starting lineup at the beginning of the 2014-15 season. He held down the role throughout the campaign, starting all 79 games in which he played during the regular season. Green averaged a career-high 31.5 minutes per contest for the Warriors and continued to grow both offensively and defensively. He posted per-game averages of 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists, all career highs. Green's shooting marks were also the best of his career; he shot 44.3 percent from the field overall and 33.7 percent from three-point range. On Dec. 6, Green scored a career-high 31 points, plus added seven boards, four steals and three blocks, in a win at Chicago. Green recorded his first career triple-double on Jan. 2 during a win over the Raptors in which he posted 16 points, 13 assists and 11 boards. He grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds on Feb. 6 during a loss at Atlanta. The 6-foot-6 forward emerged as one of the game's finest frontcourt defenders. He averaged 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks per game while cementing his reputation as a tough competitor. As a result, Green finished second in voting for Defensive Player of the Year and garnered his first selection to the All-NBA Defensive First Team. He also finished second in voting for Most Improved Player. Green was a valuable contributor in the playoffs, helping Golden State capture their first NBA Championship in 40 years. He posted per-game averages of 13.7 points, 10.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocked shots over 21 playoff contests. In the decisive Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Green started at center and became the sixth player in NBA history to record a triple-double in a Finals-clinching contest, tallying 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in 41 minutes.

2013

Green was given an expanded role in his second season with the Warriors. He played in all 82 regular-season games and made 12 starts. Meanwhile, his playing time jumped by nearly eight minutes to 21.9 minutes per contest. Green's production consequently increased to 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He also flashed his defensive skills with 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks per contest. Green showed improved shooting range over his rookie campaign, draining 55 three-pointers and shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-6 forward registered four double-doubles during the regular season, including a 20-point, 12-rebound performance against Minnesota on April 14. He also notched five assists, four steals and two blocked shots in the victory. Green totaled four blocks in three separate games during the campaign, including as part of another double-double in a win over Philadelphia on Feb. 10. The Michigan State product played in all seven games of Golden State's first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Though the Warriors lost the tough series, Green shined defensively, averaging 1.7 blocks and 1.7 steals per game. He demonstrated increased production in other areas as well, posting per-game averages of 11.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists.

2012

Green was selected with the 35th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors. Though he played in 79 games during his rookie campaign, his court time was sporadic, and he finished the regular season having logged an average of 13.4 minutes per contest. Green contributed per-game averages of 2.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists for the Warriors. He shot 32.7 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the free-throw line. Green's minutes jumped to 18.6 per game during the postseason. His offensive numbers increased to 5.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 12 playoff contests. Green notched his first career double-double in the decisive Game 6 of Golden State's first-round playoff victory over Denver, tallying 16 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

2012
While Green remained an All-Star last season, he didn't perform as well as we're used to seeing from him in a few aspects of his game, though some of that may have been due to a shoulder injury that limited him to 70 games. While his scoring (11.0) and passing (7.3) hovered around their usual marks, Green posted his fewest rebounds (7.6) and steals (1.4) per game since the 2013-14 campaign. He also shot threes at the worst percentage of his career (30.1) other than his rookie year. Still, his across-the-board production and the fact that he remains a nightly double-double, and even triple-double, threat keeps his Fantasy value high. He posted 38 games with double-digit points, 22 games with double-digit rebounds and 11 games with double-digit assists. Green even accumulated nine games with at least three steals and 10 games with at least three blocks. It’s not exactly clear how the addition of DeMarcus Cousins to the Warriors will affect Green’s usage, though it seems unlikely his presence will put Green’s All-Star status in jeopardy.
It was inevitable that multiple players on the Warriors would have to relinquish some responsibilities on the offensive end in 2016-17 following the big-ticket signing of Kevin Durant last summer, and as it turned out, Green and Stephen Curry were the main victims. The decline in production was less acute for Curry, who still averaged 25.3 points per game and led the NBA in three-pointers by a wide margin, but Green wasn’t quite as fortunate. Green’s drop in scoring average (from 14.0 points per game to 10.2) would have been more palatable if it hadn’t been accompanied by a massive declines in shooting efficiency, as the forward shot 41.8 and 30.8 percent from the field and 3-point range, respectively, both of which were down significantly from his 2015-16 marks. To Green’s credit, he didn’t chafe at the reduced role on offense, as he remained a willing passer (7.0 assists per game) and ratcheted up his effort on the defensive end, where he was arguably better than ever. Green became the first player since 2008-09 to record at least 150 steals and 100 blocks in a season and routinely matched up with both wings and centers to great success, which earned him his first Defensive Player of the Year honor. With Durant inking a two-year extension with the Warriors in July, Green will remain the clear No. 4 option most of the time when he’s on the court, so a dramatic bounce back in the scoring column shouldn’t be expected. However, if Green can more or less maintain his still-impressive across-the-board statistical production -- he recorded five triple-doubles last season -- and veer closer to his career 43.5 percent mark from the field, he’ll stand a good chance to improve his overall Fantasy value during the upcoming season.
While Stephen Curry became the NBA’s first unanimous MVP, it’s tough to argue that Green wasn’t the heart and soul of the best regular season team in league history. In his fourth NBA season, Green took his all-around production to another level, averaging 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game and becoming the first player ever to reach each of those statistical baselines in a single season. Green, who finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting and seventh in MVP voting, shot a career-best 49 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from distance, both career bests. While Green should only continue to improve as he enters his age-26 season, he, and the rest of the Warriors, will have to adjust to playing alongside Kevin Durant. Durant shouldn’t directly impact Green’s stranglehold on his hybrid power forward/center position, but Durant’s status as a high-usage player could decrease Green’s role as a playmaker. As a result, Green’s scoring and, in particular, his assist numbers, are likely to regress, though his other counting stats and shooting efficiency should be relatively safe.
A training-camp injury to David Lee opened up an opportunity for Green, who grabbed the starting power forward job, never relinquished it, and became a breakout star in 2014-15. In 79 games, he averaged 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.3 blocks in 32 minutes per game. That's some serious multi-category production. Green's not all trash talk. He's worked hard on his game since entering the NBA in 2012-13, particularly in the area of shooting. A 33-percent shooter as a rookie, Green improved to 44 percent last year while becoming a credible threat as a three-point shooter. As Warriors head coach Steve Kerr navigated the season, he discovered his best lineup was a smaller unit that used Green as a center on some occasions. He defends every position on the court and has one of those off-the-charts basketball IQs, which he uses to study video and spot opponents' tendencies. He became indispensable to Golden State and the organization recognized that. It took the team less than a day into the free-agency period to sign him up for another five years and $82 million. That's not bad money for a former second-round pick.
Green made great strides between his first and second NBA seasons. Known as a multi-purpose gadget in the Warriors' toolbox – he plays two positions, defends three, and has a basketball IQ off the charts – Green showed an improved shooting touch in 2013-14 and earned himself nine more minutes per game. As a rookie, Green bricked his way to 33-percent field-goal shooting and just 21 percent from three-point range. In his sophomore season, Green improved in those categories to 41 and 33 percent, respectively. His improvements as a shooter allowed former head coach Mark Jackson to give Green more playing time, which meant he could use a variety of skills to impact games. Green rebounds, defends, blocks shots, and moves the ball well. Above all, he plays with confidence. In 82 games, Green averaged 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.9 blocks in 22 minutes per game. With the Warriors a little thin in the frontcourt, Green should get minutes at power forward, and he'll be a staple in the lineup when new head coach Steve Kerr wants to go small.
Green will reprise his role off the bench as the Swiss army knife in head coach Mark Jackson's toolbox. There's not one defined role or spot in the rotation for him. He plays three positions, is a willing defender, rebounds, passes, has good court sense and doesn't lack confidence. On the other hand, he doesn't shoot the ball well (33 percent FG, 21 percent 3Pt), nor is he possessed with great athleticism. He averaged just 13 minutes per game as a rookie in 2012-13, and a deeper wing rotation this season will keep a lid on his opportunities.
The Warriors gave Green a three-year contract with two years guaranteed, so they’re high on the second-round pick and four-year collegiate from Michigan State. Green has basketball smarts and can make an impact without the ball, though it’s hard to see him playing a big role this season. Working against him is the dreaded “tweener” label – too big as a three, not big enough as a four. Still, the Warriors feel they have a ball-player in Green.
