Wizards’ Jeff Green Says ‘Unity’ Key To Reaching Eastern Conference Finals

Washington Wizards’ forward Jeff Green, who was signed in free agency this year, sees an opportunity for the team to reach the Eastern Conference Finals.

Green brings experience and a veteran presence to a Wizards team that suffered a quick exit from the postseason in 2018.

“To get there, you have to have team unity,” Green said, according to Kendra Andrews of The Washington Post.

“You need to all be on the same page. You have to sacrifice a little bit to make sure you’re doing what it takes to get the team there. I think that’s the biggest key. It’s not an individual thing … it definitely takes team effort and sacrifice out of your own game to make sure the team goes the extra mile to get there.”

“With the talent that’s on this team, the opportunity that is at hand and can be conquered in this Eastern Conference, I think a lot of guys are hungry to get to that point,” Green continued.

“Being there myself last year with Cleveland, I know it takes a lot … I felt like this team has it. I want to get back to that point and when I got the call, I felt like it was the best opportunity for me to get there.”

Rozier’s decision to decline the contract offer was a decision made by him and his management team.

“I’m in a great situation,” Rozier said, according to NBC Sports Boston. “My team felt it wasn’t good for me to sign an extension right now. It opens my options a little bit, but I’m focused on what’s happening right now.”

The New York Knicks are not expected to give Kristaps Porzingis a contract extension before the end of Monday’s deadline, which will make the budding franchise player a restricted free agent next summer, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Porzingis’ season-ending torn ACL and a desire to create as much cap flexibility so they can be major players in next summer’s free agency appear to be the main factors in the team coming to this decision.
