Donte Greene SF BOS 2 Months
Donte Greene was arrested early on Sunday outside of a Miami nightclub, and he now faces charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
The timing couldn't possibly be worse for Green as he was attempting to make a comeback to the NBA after spending the past two seasons in China. Greene reportedly got into a fight with Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar outside of a Miami nightclub, and this certainly doesn't look great on his resume. It's possible this derails Greene's comeback attempt, but he wasn't going to have any fantasy value anyway.

Donte Greene, a former lottery pick from the 2008 draft, is attempting to make a return to the NBA.
"I'm just trying to come back and be a pro. I'm older now, more mature, and I've got a big family to take care of," said Greene. "[During Summer League I] Try to be a leader on the floor, be active, always be in the right spots. Play smart. Play hard. Trying to do the little things. Me being older now, it's not so much coming out and having 30, 40 points as it was when I was younger. Now it's about coming out and show teams I know how to play the game." Greene spent the last season in China, but even if he's able to land on an NBA roster, he will not have any fantasy value.

Greene was traded to the Celtics in August, but his contract was unguaranteed and he wasn't expected to make it past training camp. The CBA season ends early enough that Greene can conceivably earn an NBA deal toward the end of the regular season.

Donte Greene's $1 million contract for this season is non-guaranteed.
The Celtics are slightly over the luxury tax line right now. If they cut Greene, they'll get under the tax. Considering the logjam at the 3/4 spots (Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace, Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries), it would be a surprise if Greene sticks.
