This past weekend, Danny Green, who played last season with the San Antonio Spurs, took part in the Malone Mulhall Benefit Game at St. John's University. The game was established in honor of Jamie Malone, Paige Malone, and Michael Mulhall who were killed in a car accident while they were on their way to a camp for those with special needs. All proceeds and donations from the game are directed to The Jamie and Paige Malone Foundation and a scholarship established in Michael Mulhall's name.
While I was at the game, I caught up with Green who expressed his thankfulness for being a part of such a game and stated he had no problems taking time out to help out a worthy cause.
Right before the game, Green and I sat down to talk on tons of topics including the rumors of him playing overseas in Greece, continuing to work out with some of his former Spurs teammates, and more.
Also, if you are in the New York area, Green is holding a basketball camp in North Babylon, NY from August 1-5 at Robert Moses Middle School. The fee is $250 which includes free lunch for the week for the kids in attendance, professional speakers, trainers and more.
Here is part one of this Project Spurs' interview with Green.
Jeff: What of the reports you are off to Greece and Olympiakos. Is there any truth to that?
Danny: There was a rumor. We were looking at different stuff. We don't know what's going to happen. I mean obviously I want to play. I don't just want to sit at home. I want to stay in shape, and find somewhere else to play and to make money at the same time. But I can't do that without an out clause and Olympiakos, I don't think, gives anybody a contract without an out clause.
So you have not signed with team?
I have not signed with anybody yet. Right now I'm just focusing on staying in shape and hopefully getting this lockout over. And if not, we'll look at other options and hopefully I can find a place where I can go to and then when this lockout is over, come back.
But if you do go overseas, it will not be to stay. You would want to come back to the NBA.
Definitely. Like I said, I'm not too focused on it right now.
Have to been in contact with any of your teammates?
