I doubt it, he barely got a contract at all, I can't see him starting for a team that won 67 games 2 years ago

whos place would he take

isnt he that guy that gets bounced around and no PT everywhere he goes? isnt this his 4th team? IDK whats up with him. i always have wondered, but good luck to him. his resume would imply that he wont get any serious minutes tho

Green has a weird role on the team. He could end up winning the starting job over Antoine Wright eventually (since they wanna keep Stack off the bench) or end up being buried on the bench behind Wright and Stackhouse. All depends on his additude and how he produces.

I think if he started he could definently be a 10-15 PPG contributor running with Jason Kidd. He just wont get those types of minutes though.

I still believe though that Stackhouse will be traded before the deadline and that ultimately Green and Wright will be the future at SG for Dallas. Green is by far the better offensive player and Wright is a very good defensive SG who has a knack for making the smart play. They compliment each other nicely.

Green has fallen out of favor by his previous employers because of his Ricky Davis-esque antics...let's hope Carlisle, Kidd, Dirk and those guys can straighten him out and be productive outside the occasional highlight reel.

Speaking of: how come Ricky Davis still has a job...oh wait, he's a Clipper right...?

No, I don't see him starting, but he can develop into a solid contributer off of the bench.

ive red some things on nba.com when the mavs signed in and they were talkking about maybe starting him, i just see him starting or maybe being 7th or 8th man

i think he can, i mean there isnt much options better than him, stack wont start, and i dont know about wright i tihnk green will shock alot of people this season, he only avarged 4 points last season, if he gets 10-15 points he'd probally get MIP?
