Danny Green said he was ‘grateful’ for how the Los Angeles Lakers handled his trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Green noted the Lakers and GM Rob Pelinka let him know about their intentions and did not blindside him.

“When it happened, I talked to a couple of people beforehand, so it wasn’t a blindside. I talked to R.P. [Rob Pelinka], he told me there’s going to be rumors about this, that and the other.

They told me when they were going to make the trade before the trade actually officially happened. So, like I said, I wasn’t blindsided by it,” Green told Mellisa Rohlin of Fox Sports.

Green will eventually play for the Philadelphia 76ers next season.
