Danny Green will begin his conversion on ESPN
We knew coach / player, here is now the fashion for players / consultants in the media! Draymond Green and CJ McCollum have started the trend in recent seasons and they will be joined by another veteran, Danny Greenwho signed on for ESPN on 2022/23 as a consultant.
The new Grizzlies fullback will make 15 appearances over the course of the season to deliver his insights and expertise as a three-time NBA champion. Over the years, he got caught up in the podcast « Inside the Green Room », setting himself up as a reference of the genre with 105 episodes recorded since 2018, and he sees himself continuing in this direction for his post- career, as JJ Redick or Vince Carter recently did.
“When I’m done playing, it’s something I’ve always wanted to venture into. This is an opportunity to build a CV and to be able to repeat my ranges”, he said of this new experience.
The priority, to heal
Like Draymond Green last winter, Danny Green is “taking advantage” of his rehabilitation after his double tearing of the ligaments of a knee to be more available. But his assignments for ESPN won’t impact his fitness process.
« My main goal is to get back to my physical condition, to be healthy and to play as soon as possible. While I have time right now, I have the chance to venture into it and practice a bit. Surprisingly enough, many people are unaware of how much free time we really have”.
For the time being, if he remains a precious element with the group, if only by his advice, no date of return to the game is yet planned for Danny Green.
