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.”

It appears that the Chicago Bulls are souring on Jabari Parker, who will reportedly be pulled from the regular rotation, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

The 23-year old Parker came to Chicago via a two-year, $40 million deal during the offseason, and marked a return to his hometown and a chance to re-ignite his career.

Now, it appears certain that the Bulls will decline his option, sending Parker back to free agency next summer.

“Jabari has been great,” Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said, according to Andrews. “He understands. Jabari wants to make it about helping the team win. And that’s what I’ve asked him to do.”

Parker has averaged 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds for Chicago this season.
