With a gluten of small forwards on the roster and possibly more incoming in tomorrow’s NBA draft, Donte Greene appeared to be on the outside looking in, especially when the Kings didn’t extend the Orangeman a qualifying offer earlier this week. Now, we have confirmation from Donte himself, as he announced his goodbye to Sacramento via Twitter this afternoon:
Bye-Bye SAC! Been a good 4yrs. Made so many friends and love all da fans!!!!

While never fully growing into the potential that many had hoped for, Greene became a fan favorite with his high flying ways and accessible personality, one that went out of his way to create a local charity game during last years NBA lockout.
So on behalf of we fans, thank you Donte – for being the professional you are, for the good times, for everything. You’ll be missed. A class act in every sense of the word.
Always a rough part of the NBA offseason. Good luck, Donte.
