One day after completing a sign and trade deal that sent former Boston Celtics big man Glen Davis to the Orlando Magic for forward Brandon Bass, the “Boston Globe” is reporting that the Celtics have inked another one of their Free Agents to a one year deal. Although forward Jeff green was looking for a multi-year pact, he has settled for now for a one year tour of duty. Green’s agent David Falk told reporters “I think Jeff feels like he has unfinished business in Boston. I’m not sure the people in Boston have seen the real Jeff Green.”
The 25-year-old forward came to Boston last February in the deal that sent former Celtics starting center Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Green’s numbers were far from impressive in his stint with the club, coming off the bench in 26 contests as he averaged 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
The forward who has played four seasons in the Association was originally drafted by Boston in the 2007 NBA Draft. However he was traded that night to the Seattle SuperSonics in the deal that sent Ray Allen to Boston. Green has averaged 13.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists during his career.
