Danny Green is leaving the Raptors to play for the Lakers

Danny Green is leaving the Toronto Raptors to play with Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Green announced the decision on Instagram late Friday night, apparently after getting word that former teammate Kawhi Leonard planned to sign with the Clippers.

Green's deal with the Lakers will pay him $30 million over two seasons.

It's unclear if the Raptors made any serious overtures to re-sign Green.

While Green was to said to have provided valuable experience during the team's NBA Championship run his play was inconsistent and saw his playing time dwindle in favour of Fred VanVleet.
