Danny Green is sticking with the 76ers.

The 34-year-old wing has agreed to re-sign on a two-year, $20 million deal. The Sixers had Green’s Early Bird Rights, so they were able to pay him as much as 175% of his approximately $15.4 million salary last season. 

Harrison Sanford, co-host of the Inside the Green Room podcast, broke the news. Sanford reported the following details on the contract:

It’s an important move for the Sixers, who came to terms with Andre Drummond, Furkan Korkmaz, and Georges Niang in the first several days of free agency. Green was a big piece of the Eastern Conference’s one seed in year one with the Sixers, starting 69 (nice) games. The Sixers’ starting lineup of Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Green, Tobias Harris, and Joel Embiid had a plus-15.9 net rating, per Cleaning the Class.

Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey actually pointed out the stat on Twitter a bit after 1:00am ET, highlighting that the Sixers’ starting five was an elite lineup:

Green averaged 9.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists, shooting 40.5% from beyond the arch on a career-high 6.3 attempts per game. He made a league-high 90 corner threes, converting 43.9% of those shots. Per Cleaning the Glass, his 2.1 steal percentage was in the 95th percentile for NBA wings.
