Green had "active conversations" with Cavaliers star LeBron James before making his decision to sign with the team, per ESPN.

The minimum-level deal will cost the Cavaliers roughly $8 million in salary and tax for next season. Cleveland's current payroll for the 2017-18 season is $135 million with $46 million in tax.

Green averaged a career-low 9.2 points on 39.4 percent shooting and 3.1 rebounds in 69 games with the Orlando Magic last season.

Before joining the Magic, Green played eight seasons between the Seattle Supersonics/Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers.

The former No. 5 overall draft pick in 2007 has career averages of 13.5 points and 4.7 boards over 705 games.
