Danny Green is no longer a Toronto Raptor, but judging by how much time Green has spent in Canada this summer, you’d never know it.
Seems Green really took a shine to Canada during his lone Raptors season, so much so that he recorded much of his experience on video — and he’s compiled it into a documentary that will air on TSN next month.
Green announced the project, entitled “Beyond the Arc,” on social media today. You can see the trailer on Twitter:
Hey Canada, this summer was my time to explore a country that showed me so much love. I documented all of my experiences, airing 09.09.19 on @TSN_Sports . Follow @beyondthearc_tv for updates and behind the scenes footage pic.twitter.com/lZX9cDUTlj— Danny Green (@DGreen_14) August 28, 2019
On Instagram, Green said he made it a priority to explore Canada this summer — explaining why he’s still here, from running basketball camps in Winnipeg and hanging out with Russell Peters in Brampton. “This summer was my time to get to know a country that showed me so much love,” he said.

For a lil under a year Canada was my home and quickly became a special place for me. As an NBA player during the season we never really get a chance to explore the places we live. This summer I made it a priority of mine to really explore the culture and get to know Canada first hand. So yes I see all the “why is he still here” tweets, and No I didn’t forget that I’m a Laker lol. This summer was my time to get to know a country that showed me so much love. With that being said I documented all of my experiences, and you can check them out on TSN September 9th. Special thank you to all the guest that took the time out to show me around their city.

The trailer hints at cameos from his Raptors teammates and well-known Canadians — from George St. Pierre to Justin Trudeau.
You can catch the doc on TSN on September 9th, and follow Beyond the Arc on Twitter for updates.
Green signed a two-year, $30-million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for 2019-20, but the love he’s shown Canada will keep him in Raptor fans’ hearts for a long time.
Will that love open the eyes of future free agents to how great our country is? Time will tell! Surely, the experiences of veteran players like Green and Kawhi Leonard, and the way in which Masai Ujiri and his team have run the Raptors, has placed Toronto in a very flattering light. Hopefully the days of “having to learn the metric system” and “the bad cable” are behind us!
In the meantime, be sure to tune in to TSN on the 9th to see more of Green’s Canadian experience.
