On May 10, 2019 Gerald Green was playing his last NBA game to date, although perhaps he was completely ignorant of it. The season after that, the player met the terms of his injury until in February 2020 the Rockets transferred him to a Denver Nuggets who would end up cutting him. After a sabbatical in which he gave up going to the Orlando bubble, in November of last year he signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with Houston, which was terminated just a month later with Green out due to injury. However, the 35-year-old veteran has not turned his back on the NBA and has recently returned to training with the Texas franchise.
According bill Kelly Iko for The Athletic, Green reportedly trained alongside Monta Ellis at a demonstration last week. The forward is one of the favorites of the Rockets fans and in his last stage he signed a more than worthy 10.3 points per game as a specialist in outside shooting. However, their incorporation into the workforce seems difficult given that outside positions are covered and they already have a maximum of 15 professional contracts. Still, Green may remain on Rafael Stone’s agenda should injuries or foreseeable transfers hit a young core in need of veterans like him.
