He headed home in late May to see his friends graduate at Georgetown, then trekked to Seattle for an NBA Draft watch promotion with SuperSonics fans. He flew to Orlando to participate in the NBA Summer League, then jetted to upstate New York to volunteer at a summer camp for cancer survivors. The next stop was Las Vegas, where Green contributed to a 10-man team selected to help the U.S. team tune up for the Olympics. In the span of one late-July week, Green flew to Oklahoma City to search for a new house, back to the District, then up to the Pacific Northwest to move out of his condo.
“I have been all over the place,” Green says. “My flight miles have been piling up.”
It was his first visit to Oklahoma City, and while he said he “never really cared too much to learn anything about it” before, he has done some sleuthing. He consulted New Orleans Hornets center Tyson Chandler, who learned about the city during the Hornets’ one-year refuge in Oklahoma City following Hurricane Katrina.
“He just said there’s not a lot to do there, but the fans greet you with open arms, the arena will be sold out every night, and whether you win or lose they will be behind you,” Green said. “I have been doing my research, but it takes time, you know. It’s a new place.”
