Why the Spurs should keep Danny Green

This article is cross-posted at Spurs World.
According to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld, the San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves are discussing a three-team deal, according to sources close to the situation.

Nothing is imminent, but the teams will continue to talk over the next two days.
In the rumored deal, the Spurs would acquire Josh Howard, the Timberwolves would acquire C.J. Miles and Jamal Tinsley and the Jazz would acquire Danny Green and Wayne Ellington. Other players and draft picks will likely be included in the finalized trade.
Utah holds a $10.9 traded-player exception and San Antonio holds a $854,400 traded-player exception as well.
Sources described the talks as ongoing, but stressed that no deal is imminent.
Green has been an important part of the Spurs rotation this season averaging 7.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in almost 23 minutes per ball game.
More importantly, the Spurs lanky guard has gained his confidence this year and proved to be a dependable option off the bench.
Green’s inspiring play has helped the Spurs get off to a great start despite losing Manu Ginobili to injury early in the season. His familiarity with the Spurs’ system and tenacity on the defensive end should be reasons enough for San Antonio to keep him.
Howard on the other hand, has averaged 8.8 points and 3.7 rebounds this season but is battling Achilles problems at the moment.
If the deal pushes through, San Antonio will have to make sure that Howard is completely healthy, and work him into their rotation with just 26 regular season games left.
Also, Howard’s addition appears to be unlikely, because acquiring him will give the San Antonio a logjam at the small forward position with Richard Jefferson and rookie Kawhi Leonard already in the lineup.
The deal could happen, but for all we know, these are just rumors and will not likely take place.
However, if you are the Spurs, will you be willing to give up Green to get Howard’s services?

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
topic but I had to tell someone!
