Danny Green shared his thoughts on why he decided to join the Los Angeles Lakers in the summer.

Several teams were interested in Green during this offseason, including the Dallas Mavericks. Yet, the two-time NBA champion decided to sign with the Lakers.

In an appearance on “Take it There” with Taylor Rooks, Green explained his reasoning behind this decision.

“Dallas was very interested, the Lakers were interested. But, the Lakers, to me, were front-runners to me because of the pieces they had now.

Dallas has some really good pieces, but I think it would be a year or two for them to be in that conversation. But yes, those were the two front-runners. Outside of knowing what Toronto was able to offer, it was the Lakers and Dallas,” Green said.
