Jeff Green Seeks Long-Term Deal in Boston
Celtics president Danny Ainge has been in talks with David Falk, the representative for restricted free agent forward Jeff Green, who hopes to be on time when training camp begins on Friday.
Green is weighing his options, which include a best-case scenario of signing a multiyear deal with Boston, working out a sign-and-trade, or accepting the Celtics’ qualifying offer and waiting to become a free agent next summer.
“Jeff has a desire to be in Boston,’’ Falk said. “Boston has a need. I hope Danny and I can come up with a creative way to reach an agreement.’’
“Their ability to protect his value depends on his ability to make a multiyear deal,’’ Falk said.
