Green earned his second NBA Championship ring in 2018-19 as a starting member of the Toronto Raptors. He was traded to Toronto from the Spurs along with Kawhi Leonard for DeMar DeRozan and others in a blockbuster trade the previous summer. The deal will go down as one of the most important trades in Raptors history as Green and Leonard helped Toronto capture its first title in franchise history. Green appeared in 80 regular-season games for the Raptors, averaging 10.3 points and 4.0 rebounds. His primary role was as a 3-and-D specialist. Green drained 2.5 threes per game at a 45.5 percent clip. He also played solid wing defense all season, averaging 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks per contest. The former second-round pick scored over 20 points on four occasions, including a 29-point effort against Orlando on April 1 in which he nailed seven treys. He started every game in which he played, including every postseason contest. Green averaged over 27 minutes per game in the Finals, contributing 7.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 threes per contest.2017
Green was again an important part of San Antonio's lineup during the 2017-18 season, providing strong defense and steady outside shooting. The veteran played in 70 contests during the campaign, including 60 as a starter. Green raised his per-game average in both points (8.6) and rebounds (3.6) over the previous season. He also registered 0.9 steals and a career-best 1.1 blocks per contest. The swingman continued to be a threat from deep, averaging 1.7 treys per game and shooting 36.3 percent from three-point range. On March 15, he notched a career-high six blocked shots in a win over the Pelicans. Green surpassed 20 points on three different occasions during the regular season, including a 24-point effort in a victory over the Clippers on Nov. 7. In the postseason, Green started all five games during the Spurs' first-round playoff matchup against Golden State and averaged 20.6 minutes per contest. During that series, he posted per-game averages of 4.2 points and 2.2 rebounds. He also made five shots from beyond the arc.2016
Green's 2016-17 campaign got off to a late start as the veteran missed the first seven games of the season while recovering from a strained left quadriceps. He returned to action Nov. 9, scoring eight points and collecting four steals against Houston. On the season, Green played in 68 games and posted per-game averages of 7.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists. He improved upon his long-distance shooting marks from the previous season, averaging 1.7 three-pointers per game and shooting 37.9 percent from deep. Green also collected one steal and 0.8 blocks per contest. The swingman was rewarded for his excellent perimeter defense with his first selection to the All-NBA Defensive Second Team. In the postseason, Green started 16 contests as the Spurs advanced to the Western Conference Finals. He averaged 27.2 minutes in the playoffs, up slightly from his regular-season average of 26.6. Green posted per-game averages of 7.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 three-pointers in the postseason.

In Green's sixth season with the Spurs, he started all 79 games in which he played. The former North Carolina Tar Heel posted per-game averages of 7.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists. He also averaged one steal per contest -- the fourth consecutive season he reached that mark. Though Green's three-point output dipped from his record-breaking campaign a season earlier, he still averaged 1.5 treys per game and shot 33.2 percent from deep. Green's ability to chip in across the board was important to San Antonio's success as the team notched a 12-1 record when he scored 12 or more points. He tallied 18 points in three separate contests during the campaign, including a six-rebound, three-assists, three-steal performance in a win over the Rockets on Jan. 27. The veteran started in each of San Antonio's 10 playoff contests and averaged 26.7 minutes per game. His postseason per-game averages included 8.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 steals. Green was also deadly from three-point range during the postseason, making exactly half of his 48 attempts from deep. In Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Green scored 20 points and made six three-pointers.2014
In his sixth NBA season, Green crafted arguably the finest campaign of his career. He played in 81 games for San Antonio -- 80 as a starter -- and averaged a career-high 28.5 minutes. The 2009 second-round draft pick also registered career bests in points (11.7), rebounds (4.2) assists (2.0), blocks (1.1) and three-pointers (2.4). In addition, Green's 191 treys were the most of his career, ranked eighth in the NBA and set the single-season Spurs franchise record. He also posted the seventh-best three-point percentage in the league at 41.8 percent. Meanwhile, Green shot 87.4 percent from the charity stripe -- also a career best. On Feb. 9, he established his best single-game mark by grabbing 12 rebounds in a win over Indiana. Green logged two double-doubles during the campaign, including a 27-point, 10-rebound performance against Portland on Dec. 19. In the playoffs, Green started all seven games in San Antonio's first-round matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers. He posted per-game averages of 8.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 three-pointers in the series.2013
The 2013-14 campaign was a special one for Green as he became an NBA Champion for the first time. The former North Carolina Tar Heel continued to take on an important role for the Spurs. He missed 10 games mid-season due to a nondisplaced fracture of the index finger on his left hand but still played in 68 games, making 59 starts. Green posted per-game averages of 9.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists during the regular season. He was again a threat from deep, making 1.9 three-pointers per contest and shooting 41.5 percent from beyond the arc, 11th-best in the league. Green scored a career-high 33 points in a win over Phoenix on April 11, making 7-of-10 attempts from deep. He tied his career best with five steals in only 20 minutes of action against the Pelicans on Nov. 25. In the postseason, Green started all 23 games in which he played. He posted per-game playoff averages of 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals. He also shot 47.5 percent from three-point range and made 48 total treys. In Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Green scored 15 points and collected five steals in 21 minutes.2012
Green cemented his spot in San Antonio's lineup in 2012-13, starting all 80 games in which he played and averaging a career-high 27.5 minutes per contest. He also registered career-bests in points (10.5), assists (1.8) and steals (1.2). Green continued to evolve as one of the league's premier three-point shooters, ranking eighth in the NBA with 177 treys and seventh in three-point field-goal percentage (42.9 percent). On Feb. 6, he set career highs with 28 points and eight three-pointers in a win over Minnesota. Green was also an integral part of San Antonio's run to the NBA Finals, averaging 11.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 treys in 21 postseason games. He set an NBA Finals record with 27 three-pointers in seven games against Cleveland.2011
Green signed with the Slovenian club KK Union Olimpija in August 2011, though his contract allowed him to return to the NBA when the lockout ended. In 16 games with Union Olimpija, he averaged 9.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists. Green did, in fact, return to the Spurs at the end of the lockout and took on a significantly expanded role with the team, playing in 66 games (38 starts) and averaging a career-high 23.1 minutes per contest. The former Tar Heel's numbers consequently improved as he averaged per-game career bests in points (9.1), rebounds (3.5), assists (1.3), steals (0.9) and three-pointers (1.5). Green also established himself as a legitimate threat from deep, ranking ninth in the league with a 43.6 three-point field-goal percentage. In the postseason, Green played in 14 contests as the Spurs advanced to the Western Conference Finals. He averaged 7.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 three-pointers per game in the playoffs.2010

The former Tar Heel shined with Reno, averaging 20.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals while shooting 43.4 percent from three-point range. Green was subsequently re-signed by the Spurs and saw his role grow over the final stretch of the season. On Apr. 13, Green set career highs with 24 minutes of play, 13 points and three three-pointers against Cleveland. Green also got into four playoff games in San Antonio's first-round matchup against Memphis, totaling five points, one steal and one block.2009
