This offseason, two time NBA champion decided to join the west coast team instead of Dallas Mavericks. Green explained to Taylor about this decision:

Green explained his reasoning behind this decision:

“Dallas was very interested, the Lakers were interested,” Green said of his free agency. “But the Lakers, to me, were front-runners to me because of the pieces they had now.

“Dallas has some really good pieces, but I think it would be a year or two for them to be in that conversation,” Green added. “But yes, those were the two front-runners. Outside of knowing what Toronto was able to offer, it was the Lakers and Dallas.”

This decision by Green just came after once his former Toronto Raptors teammate, Kawhi Leonard, decided to join the Clippers.
