Donte Greene, 29, has been out of the NBA since 2012. He’s since traveled the world to make a living, with stops in Puerto Rico, China, and Saudi Arabia. Greene recently spent his 2016-17 season playing for Capitanes de Arecibo, Talk N Text Tropang Texters and Leones de Santo Domingo. His next stop for the 2017-18 campaign will be in Lebanon, as he’s agreed to a one-year deal with Al Riyadi, according to a source.
Greene’s last NBA game was played in 2012 with the Sacramento Kings, and he remains focused on returning to the league after an almost-five-year hiatus. His deal with Al Riyadi will include a NBA-out clause, per source. Typically, most players with those types of deals don’t use the out-clause until their season is on the verge of concluding or when the NBA regular season is towards its end.
For Greene, it’s all about coming back to where his professional career started as soon as possible. According to a source, the 6-foot-9 forward has an NBA workout with an Eastern Conference team on September 17th, the exact same day his NBA career ended four years prior when he was waived by the Boston Celtics.
