In eight seasons with San Antonio - the bulk of his National Basketball Association career prior to this year - Green established himself as a starter and key contributor for some contending Spurs teams, and his exit wasn't almost as painful.
"I hope they react just as well and the same that they do with any other ex-teammate that comes back", Mills told reporters. "One of my all-time favourite point guards I ever played with, toughest competitor I ever played with, so I wish. he was able to be out there".
