Having already won an NBA Championship with the San Antonio Spurs back in 2013, former UNC standout Danny Green received the first individual honor of his eight-year pro career on Monday.
The 6-foot-6-inch guard was named a part of the NBA’s All-Defensive Second Team after an outstanding season locking down opponents on that end of the floor.
Voters selected two guards, two forwards and a center for each team. Green had the fourth-highest vote tally among players at his position.
Los Angeles Clippers’ star Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets’ Patrick Beverley earned the First Team guard slots, while Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies joined Green on the Second Team.
Green and teammate Kawhi Leonard–who was a First Team All-Defensive selection as a forward–helped lift the Spurs to a 61-21 record this past season.
San Antonio qualified for the Western Conference Finals against the eventual NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, but were swept out of the series in four straight games after Leonard went down with an ankle injury.
