The last big Sean Miller recruiting class is accumulating wealth.
Former Arizona Wildcats guard Josh Green has landed a 3-year, $41 million extension with the Dallas Mavericks, who took him in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
The 22-year-old Green is coming off a 2022-23 season in which he averaged career highs in points per game (9.1), rebounds (3.0) and assists (1.7) while shooting 53.7 percent overall and 40.2 percent from 3-point range. He appeared in 60 games, starting 21, with a career-best 25.7 minutes per game.
In three seasons with Dallas, Green has averaged 5.8 points and shot 51.6 percent.
Green is the second member of the UA’s 2019 recruiting class to pick up a contract extension in the days leading up to the NBA’s start to the 2023-24 campaign on Tuesday. Over the weekend the Denver Nuggets gave ex-Wildcat forward Zeke Nnaji a 4-year, $32million extension to stay with the defending NBA champs.
In his one season at Arizona, Green averaged 12 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 30 games in 2019-20 before Dallas took him 18th overall.
