Celtics Close To Re-Signing Jeff Green

SATURDAY, 1:33pm: As Matt Moore of CBSSports.com points out, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe passed along a comment from Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge that seems to indicate Green and the Celtics have agreed to terms.

"We've added a couple of great professionals in Jeff Green and Jason Terry and we drafted three guys that I think are very professional and add to the locker room," Ainge said in Washburn's report. "Talent is a hard thing to find but we put a great deal of value into what goes on in the locker room also."

It could merely be a slip of the tongue, but it's seemingly one more indication of how close the two sides are. Terry and the Celtics reached an agreement Tuesday.

FRIDAY, 7:55am: SI.com's Sam Amick reports that Green and the Celtics continue to talk, but it appears likely they'll be ready to finalize a deal when the moratorium ends next Wednesday.

"We've gotten a lot of interest from other teams," said agent David Falk. "But as far as Boston, we're very confident it'll get done. He wants to be in Boston."

According to Amick, Green's deal may be "in the neighborhood" of four years and $40MM.

MONDAY, 10:33am: With Kevin Garnett on board, the Celtics are looking to fill out the rest of their frontcourt, and are closing in on their next target. Agent David Falk tells Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe that Jeff Green is "close" to re-signing with Boston, though no agreement has been reached yet (Twitter link). Celtics president Danny Ainge confirmed that the C's intend to lock up Green when the moratorium ends, tweets Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News.

The Celtics agreed to sign Green to a one-year, $9MM deal for 2011/12, but voided the deal when the forward failed his physical due to heart problems. With Green apparently healthy, it's unclear what sort of contract he'll be looking at this summer, in terms of years and salary.

    Great news. Tough day yesterday for us Celtic fans but Jeff Green is a guy that can take some pressure off of Pierce and Bass/Garnett. He is versatile and a key component going forward.

    $10 Million a year for guy who didn’t play one game last year…. gotta love the NBA all the whining and complaining about contracts being too high and here are the owners dishing out high contracts left and right like its nothing.
