Nothing is official yet, but it could be by the end of the day. The Boston Celtics and Jeff Green are close to putting the finishing touches on a short-term deal to keep Green in the fold. If true, that is great news for Celtics fans everywhere, and a huge shot in the arm for team that is looking to make another run at an NBA Championship.
Green would help peel minutes off of Paul Pierce’s normal workload, and we all know that that’s a good thing. Pierce slowed noticeably during the playoffs, partly due to the knee injury and partly due to age. With Green, the Celtics would have a two-headed monster at the small forward position, one young and one seasoned, both very capable.
