Where will Danny Green end up this summer?

Published Jun. 16, 2015 12:50 p.m. ET

Re-signing Danny Green should be one of San Antonio's priorities this summer. The three-point shooting swingman doubles as a versatile defender, and would work wonderfully over the next few years as a partner on the wing beside Kawhi Leonard.

But even with the rising cap, there's a chance Green receives an offer that's too rich for the Spurs' blood. Which teams could potentially pry him away? Bleacher Report's David Kenyon takes a look at several possible landing spots, including Portland:

"The chief criticism of Green is that he's a system player. Though there's some credence to that statement, Green would fill the exact same role—make a bunch of threes and play a lot of defense—for the Blazers as he has done for the Spurs. Green would likely be encouraged to increase his shooting volume, and a three-point weapon like him would probably salivate at that opportunity. Matthews launched 7.4 triples per game last season, and Afflalo hoisted 3.6 more."

This is a concern for San Antonio. Green's role in their system is hard to replace and crucial, especially if Manu Ginobili retires.

But because we're talking about the Spurs, don't expect them to let their guy go. Nothing bad ever happens to this organization.
