Donte Greene enjoyed time in minors

The Sacramento Bee (Melody Gutierrez) reports:  Donté Greene was by no means kicking and screaming for his return to the Kings. The rookie was having fun in Reno with the Bighorns of the NBA Development League. “I’m going to miss it – all the minutes and the guys,” Greene, 20, said Sunday after Kings practice. “I got pretty close with the guys over there.” In his five games with the Bighorns, Greene averaged 31.8 minutes, 20.4 points, 1.2 blocked shots and 4.2 rebounds, while playing shooting guard and small forward. In his last game with the Bighorns on Saturday, Greene scored 28 points. Greene said he went into the experience knowing the D-League could do him a favor.
