NBA Free Agency: Cavs, Jeff Green reportedly agree on one-year minimum deal

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been relatively quiet this offseason, due largely to the fact that they don’t have a lot of cap room to sign big-name free agents. 

The Cavs need to convince players to take minimum contracts and, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, that’s exactly what they did on Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $2.3 million deal with forward Jeff Green.

An athletic 6-foot-9 forward, Green has played for five teams in his nine-year NBA career, and sat out the entire 2011-12 season due to a heart condition. He has averaged as many as 16.9 points per game in his career and put up 9.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season in 69 games for the Orlando Magic.

The 30-year-old will likely come off the bench for Cleveland, but can fill in at both forward positions in case of any injury to Kevin Love or LeBron James.

Green joins veteran point guard Jose Calderon as the Cavaliers’ lone offseason additions, and you have to wonder whether another move, possibly involving Dwyane Wade or Carmelo Anthony, is on the horizon.
