If Josh Green is somehow there whenever it is the OKC Thunder are on the clock, Sam Presti should highly consider scooping up the Arizona Wildcat. His stellar off-ball defense and his solid on-ball defense make him a valuable prospect that will come in and immediately make an impact.

Josh Green averaged 12 points, four rebounds, and a pair of assists per contest. He offers a great ability to shoot the 3-ball, especially when his teammates find him for an open look.

Green can create a ton of shots and can provide yet another 3 and D player that has a ton of upside to eventually become more than that. Green shot 36 percent from beyond the arc.

His energy and effort defensively along with his size will allow him to switch into any matchup and feel comfortable.

His game is not limited to just a catch and shoot man, he can also make his teams offense hum with fantastic passes and soft-touch that makes teams respect his inside game.

Green has a bit of an injury concern, having surgery on a torn labrum in 2019, but he was still able to play in 30 games for the Wildcats.

He will thrive in the NBA off-ball, with incredible slashing ability, and the aforementioned catch and shoot attribute. Adding a player that does not need the ball in his hands to succeed makes for a great plug-and-play prospect for most contending teams.
