Jeff Green, Celtics Agree to 4-Year Contract

Jeff Green’s agent, David Falk, is reporting that his client and the Celtics have agreed to the framework of deal that would put Green back in green next season. Green sat out the entirety of the 2011-2012 NBA season after having surgery to correct a heart problem.

This move comes less than 24 hours after veteran guard Ray Allen decided he was joining the Miami Heat instead of returning to his teammates in Boston. After losing out on Allen, it is obvious the Celtics felt they needed to move quickly to secure Green.

The 25 year-old forward, Green, has averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds in four years in the NBA. The Celtics are hoping that Green and recently added guard, Jason Terry, will be able to make up for the offense the team will miss from Allen’s departure.

The specifics of Green’s new deal are still unknown, but the contract is believed to be a multi-year deal with an average annual salary somewhere between $9-10 million. With Green, Terry and Brandon Bass locked up, the Celtics will now look to fill out their roster with minimum salary players. Look for names like Mickael Pietrus and Keyon Dooling to pop up.
