Jeff Green Close to Agreeing on 4 Year $40 Million Deal With Celtics

A lot of money for a player coming off heart surgery. Green has a lot of potential and the Celtics appear to believe he will live up to that potential.

I am not convinced.

“I’m confident it’ll get done,” (Green’s agent David) Falk told of Green’s deal. “I guess (Boston) got (Brandon) Bass’ (contract) done, which is great. Jeff is trying to get a sense of what the team looks like first before he makes a commitment, but I expect he’ll be there and I expect it’ll be done by the 11th (when the free agency moratorium ends and deals can be formalized)….”

A source with knowledge of the talks said Green’s deal may be “in the neighborhood” of four years for $40 million, though the two sides are continuing talks.
