Grizzlies SF Jeff Green scores team-high 21 vs. Magic
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Grizzlies small forward Jeff Green scored a team-high 21 points on 8 of 18 shooting in his team's 106-96 win over the Magic Friday.
All five Memphis starters scored in double digits Friday, but it was Green pacing the team in scoring in his second game with the Grizzlies while playing 31 minutes off the bench.
''He's learning how to play off other guys,'' coach Dave Joerger said of Green after the game, per the Associated Press. ''He's a good cutter, (coming) out of being a smart player and playing a good cutting system in college. That's kind of where he made his money tonight.''
Green also delivered five rebounds, two assists and one block in the win. ''Adding a guy like Jeff just gives us that much more versatility,'' point guard Mike Conley, who missed his first game of the season Friday, said. ''He can come off the bench and play three, play four, he's athletic, a lot of things we've been looking for in a player. He fills that void.''
Green will square off with the Blazers Saturday.

Pelicans guard Quincy Pondexter is eligible to face the Pistons in Detroit Wednesday as well.
Jeff Green likely not a Fantasy starter following trade
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(1/13/15) Newly acquired swing man Jeff Green has yet to play for the Grizzles, but could make his debut Wednesday when they take on the Nets. What should Fantasy owners expect from him in his new role?
Green isn't the type of player who can be a solid Fantasy contributor in any situation, because he doesn't really do a whole lot. You can use him when he is getting plenty of shots, but if he's not scoring 15-plus points per game, what are you getting from Green that dozens of other players can't give you. Just look at his 2012-13 season: 12.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.9 3-pointers.
The question with Green in Memphis is where are his shots going to come from? The Grizzlies have Mike Conley, Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph taking 41.6 shots per game combined, and nobody else on the team averages more than 8.5. If Green is the fourth option offensively, it's hard to see him doing much to maintain Fantasy relevance, at least as a starter.
There's no reason to just outright drop Green right now, but he's definitely going to lose value. I would still stash Green, because he'll make for great insurance for Randolph, who has already missed an extended stretch this season. However, you probably won't be able to rely on him as a Fantasy starter as long as Randolph is healthy.

Celtics, Pelicans, Grizzlies officially announce three-team trade
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/12/15) The Celtics, Pelicans and Grizzlies announced Monday they completed a three-team trade that was first reported over the weekend.
The Celtics acquired forward Tayshaun Prince and a future first-round pick from Memphis. The Celtics also acquired guard Austin Rivers from New Orleans.
The Grizzlies acquired forward Jeff Green from Boston and guard Russ Smith from New Orleans. In addition, the Grizzlies will receive a traded player exception.
The Pelicans acquired forward Quincy Pondexter and a future second-round pick from the Grizzlies.
"The New Orleans Pelicans are thrilled to welcome back a high character person like Quincy Pondexter to our organization," Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said. "Quincy is a two-way player, a multi-position defender that will add toughness along with an offensive skill set that we anticipate will help the Pelicans win games.
"It was difficult to trade Austin Rivers and Russ Smith. Russ was only with the team for a short time while Austin is an intense competitor that is continuing to improve. We will miss Austin and Russ on and off the court. We thank Austin and Russ for their contributions and wish them success in the future."
|Thrust into a larger role than ever before, Jeff Green responded with the most productive season of his NBA career in 2013-14. After missing an entire season following heart surgery, Green has proven remarkably durable since, as he appeared in all 82 games last season. He averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game as the Celtics' first option on offense, though his efficiency took an expected hit. He shot a career-low 41.2 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from three-point range. The Celtics should be a better team overall this season, which could lead to a smaller shot volume for Green. That should help his efficiency while hurting his counting stats, which should add up to making Green more of a mid-round Fantasy option on Draft Day.
