However, I think that signing Green would be disastrous for the Nets. In order to illustrate this point, I will compare Green to the league average.
Points Per Game:
9.5 PTS in 23.5 Minutes - 0.404 Points Per Minute
14.1 Points in 33.6 Minutes - 0.420 Points Per Minute
Rebounds Per Game:
4.0 REB in 23.5 Minutes - 0.170 Rebounds Per Minute
4.8 Rebounds in 33.6 Minutes - 0.143 Rebounds Per Minute
Blocks Per Game:
0.47 Blocks in 23.5 Minutes - 0.020 Blocks Per Minute
0.5 Blocks in 33.6 Minutes - 0.015 Blocks Per Minute
Steals Per Game:
0.71 Steals in 23.5 Minutes - 0.030 Steals Per Minute
0.8 Steals in 33.6 Minutes - 0.024 Steals Per Minute
Assists Per Game:
2.1 Assists in 23.5 Minutes - 0.089 Assists Per Minute
1.5 Assists in 33.6 Minutes - 0.045 Assists Per Minute
Field Goal Percentage:
League Average: 45.8%
Jeff Green: 45.2%
Field Goal Percentage "At Rim:"
League Average: 63.9%
Jeff Green: 71.9%
Field Goal Percentage From 3-9 Feet
League Average: 39.1%
Jeff Green: 32.1%
Field Goal Percentage From 10-15 Feet
League Average: 39.2%
Jeff Green: 28.0%
Field Goal Percentage From 16-23 Feet
League Average: 39.4%
Jeff Green: 41.4%
3-Point Field Goal Percentage
League Average: 36.1%
Jeff Green: 31.7%
So, Jeff Green is above average in exactly three of these categories, Points Per Game, Field Goal Percentage "At Rim," and Field Goal Percentage From 16-23 Feet.
In every other category, he is below the league average.
Is he worth the contract it would take to pry him away from Boston? I do not believe that he is.
I really, really hope King does not sign this guy. It could be a disastrous mistake that could hurt the Nets for a long time to come. If the Celtics want to overpay this guy, more power to them.
Don't do it.
Should the Nets sign Jeff Green?
