Jeff Green to Re-Sign With Celtics?
Jeff Green was supposed to be the new centerpiece for the Celtics — the athletic wing with range who could give Boston the boost of youth and provide versatility. But instead, he could have lost his life. A heart condition was discovered and required surgery. He lost the entire season, and the Celtics lost to LeBron James (not really the Heat, just LeBron), who Green would have been invaluable against defensively.
But Green’s back to good health according to his agent, and is a free agent. Could he be headed for a fresh start? Not in Danny Ainge’s mind. Ainge told reporters at the press conference to introduce Boston’s rookies on Monday the Celtics intend to get Green back in the fold and get the plan back on track.
The question will be what kind of contract he pulls in and whether the Celtics can afford him. They already gave Kevin Garnett a sizeable contract. They’re planning on offering Ray Allen $12 millon over two years. They have money committed to Paul Pierce. They want Brandon Bass back. But it appears that Green’s at the top of the list.
