Rebuilding isn’t fun, but Celtics forward Jeff Green is staying upbeat about it, writes Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com. “You can’t really put a timetable on the rebuilding process,” said Green. “As long as you continue to get better each day — going to practice and just get better — that’s what it’s going to take for us to get better as a team and to increase wins. I think we ended the season well and this whole summer each guy took it upon themselves to get better, which is going to make our team better.” More from the Atlantic Division..
