Spurs Re-Sign Danny Green

The San Antonio Spurs Tuesday announced that they have re-signed guard Danny Green. Terms of the deal were not announced. Last season, the New York native appeared in 81 games, averaging career-bests with 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.25 steals and 1.07 blocks in 28.5 minutes while shooting .436 from the field, .418 from downtown and a career-best .874 from the free throw line.

The Persistence of Danny Green

Three players have made at least 100 three-pointers on 40 percent shooting for the past four seasons – Danny Green, Kyle Korver and Klay Thompson. Green has made 42.0 percent of his 3-point attempts in his career, the NBA’s 12th-best percentage of all-time. For him to get there, it took a few detours. “You’re going to have doubts when you get cut,” Green said. “But you can use those moment to light a fire under yourself.” (NBA.com)

Potential UNC vs. Kentucky Alumni Game: The Lineups

The other day, Keeping It Heel presented the rosters for a potential UNC vs. Kentucky Alumni Game matchup. Today, KIH wants to take it one step further and offer up some potential lineups that each team could use in the game.

Basketball Schedule Look: Temple

The Tar Heels are more talented, deeper, and can excel in many more ways than Temple, but this isn't a gimmie. Temple is the kind of team that can surprise anyone in the nation on a given night. That said, UNC should pull away. Good opener for a change. Temple coach Fran Dunphy is a very good coach whom Roy Williams will praise a lot leading up to and after the game. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Top 5 UNC wings in the Roy Williams Era: No. 4

Danny Green did everything for UNC in his four-year career in Chapel Hill that culminated with the 2009 National Championship.

UNC's sixth man for much of his career, Green excelled when given extra minutes as a starter during the 2008-2009 season. (Carolina Blue)

Harrison Barnes hits the books with young readers

Chansky’s Notebook: Jim Delany’s Journey Remarkable

But Delany’s professional journey is the most amazing. He was a reserve for Dean Smith’s Tar Heels who was mad at the coach for not playing him more. He slipped into law school and made it through, worked in the state attorney general’s office, as an NCAA investigator and became commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference at age 31.

Top 5 UNC wings in the Roy Williams Era: No. 5

Reggie Bullock played three seasons at North Carolina from 2010-2013 before being drafted in the NBA's first round after his junior season.

During the 2012-2013, the Kinston native averaged 13.9 points while shooting 43.6% from three. (Carolina Blue)

Warriors’ James Michael McAdoo is a Summer League standout

James Michael McAdoo is gliding through Summer League play as a cut-above talent. Supremely confident in his options around the hoop, he strikes the look of a forward who goes where he pleases.

Reggie Bullock believes he'll click with the Pistons

Reggie Bullock faced a crowded backcourt with the Los Angeles Clippers. He faced a crowded backcourt with the Phoenix Suns. So he should be used to that situation with the Detroit Pistons.

Harrison Barnes: The NBA champion who's mastered the postgame party (video)

Until three weeks ago, 23-year-old Harrison Barnes had never tried alcohol in his life. Although he was clearly getting along just fine without it, the Golden State Warriors forward vowed to celebrate with an adult beverage if his team won the NBA championship, and he did just that. In the wake of Golden State's victory and the resulting parties, Barnes told Yahoo Sports that he hasn't really felt the need to make up for lost time in the drinking department. (Yahoo! Sports)
