EAST LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan State will be retiring Draymond Green's No. 23, head coach Tom Izzo announced on Monday.

Green, 29, is from Saginaw and played for the Spartans for four seasons from 2008-2012.

"This is a fitting honor for one of the ultimate winners in Michigan State history," Izzo said.

In his four seasons at MSU, Green had 1,517 points, and is the university's leading rebounder in university history. He's one of three players in MSU history with 1,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.

He had 80 double-figure scoring games, 40 career double-doubles and three triple-doubles, ranking second behind Magic Johnson.
