Collison, who last played for the Indiana Pacers, was a first round pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

He was also named to the All-Rookie First Team in his first year in the league with the New Orleans Hornets.

Green put in heavy work with Collison, matching up one-on-one with the NBA-caliber guard.

Green is the top prospect out of high school in the United States and is projected to be a first-round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

He and Sotto will banner the new NBA G League squad under the tutelage of three-time NBA champion Brian Shaw.
