Green: I'll Give Nets Discount


The Green Machine has not quite reached the heights of LinSanity, but more and more, his story is getting told and retold. Jonathan Abrams of Grantland goes into the most depth on who Gerald Green is and how he redeemed himself ... through the Nets. In talking with Fred Kerber Wednesday, Green returns the favor, saying he wants to stay with the Nets next season, even saying he'd reward the Nets with a hometown discount during free agency this summer.

"Most definitely I would," Green said without pause when asked if he would take less money to sign with Brooklyn. "I’m about loyalty and this team was the first team to pick me up for the year. They gave me an opportunity. They gave me a shot. Look what they’re doing. Our record doesn’t speak for itself. We’re a lot better team than our record says."

Green will be an unrestricted free agent come July 1. A favorite of Mikhail Prokhorov's, Green added he is looking forward to next season. "I think this season was a season where we can kind of see where we’re at and I would love to be a part of what’s going on in the future."
