So far this season, the Los Angeles Clippers got mixed results from the 6-foot-8 and 225 pound former Alabama Crimson Tide power forward JaMychal Green. Hitting the unrestricted free agent market this coming offseason, Green is likely to be seeing the door in Los Angeles. The Clippers are set to have a good amount of roster movement during the impending offseason to potentially retool their supporting cast around Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
Especially if Karnisovas and Eversley were planning on getting some movement in the frontcourt rotation, then adding depth with more quality veteran pieces would be crucial. Green could replace someone like forward Thaddeus Young, center Luke Kornet, or especially someone like Brazilian big man Cristiano Felicio, in the frontcourt rotation.
In 55 games played in the season that is currently placed on pause, Green averaged 6.5 points per game, 6.3 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.5 steals, while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 36.3 percent from beyond the arc. That led to a box plus/minus rating of -0.8, .111 win shares per 48 minutes, 0.3 value over replacement player rating, 55.4 true shooting percentage, and a 111 offensive rating/106 defensive rating.
Advanced metrics give mixed reviews as to the value and efficiency that Green brought to the table so far this season for the Clippers. He’s been more efficient in the past, especially during his run with the Memphis Grizzlies. But the Bulls would have an opportunity to add valuable depth to the frontcourt rotation at a price that’s not too outrageous. He’s made roughly $8 million in each of the last two years.
