Think you're overrating Green bro.
The trade gave us a backup small forward which we still don't have and a 3 point shooter. How many mins you expect Green to get? Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala, Ivey, and Rush are all in the backcourt with him. The Jason Smith/Eli swap was only because Hornets fans weren't interested.
The trade could have let us play Lou Williams up to 30 mins a night, same way Barbosa does for Phoenix (and drops 16ppg). Green is holding back Lou more so than Iggy and Miller in my mind.
