Green on Kawhi: 'He gave me no updates'

Jared Dudley Kyle Kuzma Lakers

"I think all of it was a shock to me", Green said.

"We had no influence into what his final decision was going to be". I didn't see him coming this route [to the Lakers]. And even if it did happen, I don't think they had room for me there [in Toronto].

Despite winning two NBA titles with Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green said Thursday he was given no insight on the NBA Finals MVP's free-agency decision before Leonard signed with the Los Angeles Clippers last week. "I want a full season of health and going to the playoffs, and whatever happens, happens". He returned nearly exactly a year later and played 30 games for the Golden State Warriors in the 2018-2019 season, only to suffer a quad injury in the playoffs that forced him to miss another six weeks.

Cousins said he's excited to be back with Anthony Davis after both were acquired by the Lakers this offseason and admitted it's a scenario he and Davis had talked about. And Green then became the Lakers' top target.

That wasn't the case with Green, who admits Davis and James were a major perk of him signing with the Lakers. You never know, it could be two teams in L.A. playing against each other [in the playoffs] which we wouldn't have to travel anywhere.

It was supposed to be a "Welcome to Los Angeles" housewarming gift from LeBron James to Anthony Davis: LeBron was giving up his No. 23 to Davis and going back to the No. 6 he wore in Miami.

"I can say this, we're incredibly grateful of just kind of his supportive messages", Pelinka said. As a result, the Los Angeles Lakers are going to be a very fun team to watch. We enjoyed our time together as teammates. The LA team succeeded in nabbing the player by acquiring Paul George and offering the National Basketball Association star a chance to play in his home state. "But my time here has to be focused on building the Lakers team".
