Clippers acquire shooting guard Green from Hawks


Posted Jul 30 2012 6:21PM

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have traded shooting guard Willie Green to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for the rights to forward Sofoklis Schortsanitis, a 2003 draft pick from Cameroon who has not played in the league.

The deal Monday creates a trade exemption for the Hawks, who have built depth at guard through a series of moves.

The 31-year-old Green averaged 7.6 points while making 44.2 percent of his 3-point attempts last season. He has averaged 9.1 points in nine NBA seasons with Philadelphia, New Orleans and Atlanta.

Hawks first-year general manager Danny Ferry has traded All-Star guard Joe Johnson while adding guards Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar and DeShawn Stevenson. The Hawks also signed guard Lou Williams and drafted shooting guard John Jenkins of Vanderbilt.
