The Sacramento Kings today signed free-agent point guard Orien Greene to a contract, according to Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. InsideHoops.com hears it’s a short-term deal, and we’re assuming it’s for low money, probably close to the minimum, but we absolutely have not confirmed that. It’s just logical speculation.
Greene, a 6-4, 210-pound guard, averaged 1.5 ppg (.371 FG%, .600 FT%) and 1.1 rpg in 41 games for the Indiana Pacers in 2006-07.
Originally drafted out of Louisiana-Lafayette in the second round (#53) of the 2005 NBA Draft by Boston, Green appeared in 80 games (started five) for the Celtics his rookie season, posting averages of 3.2 ppg (.395 FG%, .662 FT%), 1.8 rpg, 1.6 apg, and 1.0 spg in 15.4 mpg.
