Green’s $10 million unguaranteed salary for next season. It now seems highly likely the 76ers will waive him before that money becomes fully guaranteed July 1. Though there’s a theoretical case for keeping Green as an expiring contract to use in a trade, that would only add to an already-expensive payroll.

Unfortunately for Green, he’ll likely never recoup that money. He turns 35 next month, and this injury at that age could spell the end of his time as a reliable NBA contributor.

Green was an ideal role player on some excellent teams. The 3-and-D wing won championships with the Spurs, Raptors and Lakers. As the 76ers bemoan a lack of toughness, Green stood out as an exception.

But it’ll be a tough road back for Green now.
