Willie Green will shoot you out of more games than he'll shoot you in to, combine that with scoring being the only thing he brings to the court and he's not overly impressive at that. It takes him 12 shots to score 11 points. He does nothing Louis Willams can't do and I'd much rather see Williams get those minutes so he can develop, I'd have rathher seen Byars get those minutes. Willie Green is what he is, he's not getting any better and is not significant to the future of this team.
Kevin Ollie has never been known as a locker room guy. He's an average at best point guard and again is no part of the Sixers future. Which is why he and Green both were in trade talks all summer along with Hunter.
Byars probably didn't go overseas because he knows there will probably be a team that will need a guard at some point this season and will give him a shot.
