Report: Wizards signing Jeff Green for minimum


Patrick Smith

The Wizards played well when a pair of combo forwards, Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre, shared the court last season.

Washington can use those versatile lineups more often next year with another combo forward – Jeff Green – replacing Mike Scott, who’s more just a power forward.

This is a homecoming for Green, who grew up in Maryland and played collegiately at Georgetown.

The 31-year-old Green is coming off arguably the best season of his career. With the Cavaliers, he established value with his ability to defend multiple positions. When his 3-pointers are falling, he looks good. When they aren’t, he’s useful only when the matchup calls for switching defense.

And we know how much John Wall and the Wizards like to switch on defense.
