Boston Celtics 2013 Player Profile: Donte Greene

Donte Greene didn’t see any NBA action last season but the Boston Celtics picked up the guard-forward recently and may need him extensively during the upcoming season.

He had played 2008-12 with the Sacramento Kings and saw action in 253 games. Injuries kept him out of action last season. He had been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies who did not use him.

Greene might have found a home in Boston considering the team has overhauled its lineup and is looking for new face to fill the void and create a new future for the team.

Greene has a $1 million contract for the 2013-14 season but it’s not guaranteed. He’s going to have to compete hard in training camp to earn a spot at forward considering the Celtics have a lot of faces there right now. He’s looking to earn a spot on the team and work his way up from off the bench.

He was slated at small forward and could see action at the other forward spot, depending on what becomes of Jared Sullinger with his latest off-the court-problems.

Greene’s best season of the four with Sacramento was his second year with when he played 76 games and averaged 21.5 minutes, 8.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.7 blocks per game, shooting 44.1 percent from the floor, 37.7 percent in 3-pointers and 64.3 percent in free throws.

If he stays healthy, Greene can be an impact player for the Celtics and give the team some critical help at crucial times. Right now, he’s anticipated to be good. They need him to output consistently every night.
