In acquiring Klay Thompson, the Dallas Mavericks also released Josh Green in a three-team trade with the Charlotte Hornets.

The full trade announced by Adrian Wojnarowski:

Dallas receives : Klay Thompson

Golden State receives : two second rounds of draft

Charlotte receives : Josh Green

Under NBA trade rules, the Mavericks had to give up salary to get Klay Thompson’s $50 million over 3 years. It’s Josh Green, the Australian guard, who makes his way to the Hornets, having sniffed out a good opportunity.

BREAKING: Free agent Klay Thompson plans to join the Dallas Mavericks on a three-year, $50M deal with a player option, sources tell ESPN. Thompson ends his historic Warriors run as part of a multi-team sign-and-trade that’ll also send Josh Green to Charlotte.

Selected by the Dallas Mavericks in the 18th overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft, Josh Green had two relatively quiet first seasons before establishing himself as an important part of Jason Kidd’s rotation. A part-time starter depending on absences over the last two seasons, he posted more than respectable statistics with 8.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2 assists on average at 50.8% shooting including 39.3 from 3-point range. Green has played in every 2024 Playoff game off the bench for an equally clean parking lot address.

At just 23 years old, the guard has enough development potential to interest the Charlotte Hornets, who would probably welcome a hard-working player with a sense of duty. Last October, Josh Green extended his contract in Texas for $41 million over 3 years. He will cost the Hornets around $13 million per season through 2026-27. But for such a versatile potential starting 2, the opportunity was too good to miss.
