76ers re-sign Willie Green
Philadelphia 76ers President Billy King announced today that the team has re-signed restricted free agent guard Willie Green. Per team policy, terms of the contract are not disclosed.
Green, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound guard from Detroit Mercy appeared in only 10 games last season for Philadelphia after spending the majority of the year rehabilitating from reconstructive surgery that was performed on his right knee in August of 2005. He was signed to a contract on March 23, 2006, and in his 10 games (2 starts), averaged 7.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game. In his three-year Sixers career, Green has averaged 7.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 120 contests while averaging 16.6 minutes per game.
Green was drafted by Seattle in the second round (41st pick overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft, and was acquired by Philadelphia in a draft night trade in exchange for the draft rights to Paccelis Morlende (2nd round, 50th pick) and an undisclosed amount of cash.
