2021 Free Agency

76ers officially re-sign Danny Green

The three-time NBA champion is returning to Philly for the 2021-22 season.

Free-agent Danny Green is re-signing with the 76ers.

Danny Green is officially staying in Philadelphia, the team announced Saturday.

The veteran guard was first acquired by the 76ers last season as part of a trade with the Thunder in exchange for Al Horford and Draft picks. Green, a three-time NBA champion, played a key role in Philly’s success during the regular season, averaging 9.5 points and shooting 40.5% from behind the arc.

“Bringing Danny back was a top priority for our organization this offseason,” said Daryl Morey, President of Basketball Operations for the 76ers.

“He has proven to be an important leader on and off the floor, and he knows what it takes to win an NBA title as a three-time champion. We are very happy that he’ll continue to remain a crucial part of the 76ers.”

He played in eight games during the 76ers playoff run but was sidelined after suffering a right calf strain in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Hawks.
