Boston Celtics: The rise of Javonte Green

It’s shocking that Javonte Green has never had a true NBA opportunity before he crossed paths with the Boston Celtics. After going un-drafted in 2015, and years of playing overseas, Green is finally getting his shot at an NBA career.

In 2015, Javonte Green joined the LEB Plata of the Spanish third division. During his rookie year, Green averaged 18 points and 6.7 rebounds per game; which earned him league MVP honors. The following season, Green would join an Italian basketball league, where he would average 18 points and 7 rebounds per game.
