The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with guard Josh Green.
Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Green (6-6, 210) enters his fourth season having increased his averages in each one prior. In 2022-23, he posted career-high averages of 9.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 25.7 minutes. Green also shot 53.7% from the field (205-382 FG), 40.2% from three (68-169 3FG) and 72.3% (68-94 FT) from the free throw line. When called upon to be a starter last season, he averaged 11.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 31.3 minutes in 21 games.
“We have seen Josh work extremely hard over his time with the Mavs to become an impactful player on both ends of the floor,” said Mavericks GM and VP of Basketball Operations Nico Harrison. “His energy is contagious for our group, and when he’s in the game he pushes his teammates to play at a different speed. Josh is a high-level person and teammate, and we are happy to have him with our program for the long term.”
The Australian native played one year of college basketball at Arizona before being selected 18th overall by Dallas in the 2020 NBA Draft. Green owns career averages of 5.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 18.2 minutes over 166 games (29 starts) in his three seasons, and he has 17 games of playoff experience.
Green produced six games with at least 20 points in 2022-23 after not scoring 20 or more points in any game his first two seasons. He tallied a career-high 29 points, including 12 in the third quarter, in 37 minutes at Utah on Feb. 6, and was a +39 on the night.
During the month of February, he scored in double figures in a career-best six consecutive games.
In March, Green posted three consecutive games with 20-or-more points.
Representing his national team, Green has played for Australia in the 2023 FIBA World Cup and 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, where he won a bronze medal – the country’s first-ever Olympic medal in men’s basketball.
