On the Celtics front, agent David Falk continues to say he thinks a deal gets done with Boston for free agent forward Jeff Green. One source with knowledge of the talks says it may be in the four years, $40 million neighborhood, but it is not done.
"I知 confident it値l get done," Falk told SI.com. "I guess they got (Brandon) Bass' (contract) done, which is great. Jeff is trying to get a sense of what the team looks like first before he makes a commitment, but I expect he値l be there and I expect it値l be done by the 11th (when the free agency moratorium ends). We致e gotten a lot of interest from other teams. But as far as Boston, we池e very confident we値l get it done.

Jeff Green is overrated.

Yes. Can't rebound. Not a good defender. Very spotty efficiency for a PF.

And the Celtics, if anyone, should know that. He averaged 9.8/3/0.7 for them off the bench! THEN he has his condition that knocks him out for a season. Very, very suspect choice there Boston (if this does go through). He's probably the 25th best PF in the league. Might be high for him right now, actually.

By all accounts he's a great guy though - so hey, good for him.

07-05-2012, 09:46 PM
seeing as how everyone is getting overpaid these days, i would say 4/40mill is a good contract for Green last season before the heart surgery. Now, im not so sure, if hes healthy i think 8 mill is more than enough. People are making it out to be much worse than it is though. Bass got 7 mill, Glenn Davis got 7 mill, Thadeus Young got 7 mill, and Green is much better than all of them.

Is there some clause where Jeff Green has to take the court alone?

Bottom line, he was the best player available (since Boston doesn't land free agents. ever.), we had the bird rights, and the FO has ****-all to worry about next year because the window is about to slam shut.

We need Green, Green wanted security, Green is getting paid. Who cares.

yeah these contracts that have been given out this off-season have been mind boggling. what is going on?

bcc
07-05-2012, 11:33 PM
Overpaid? Sure he is but look around.
Lin's getting $30M for four years. Dragic, with all of 28 games as a starter, is getting $35M over four. Roy Hibbert and Eric Gordon just got the max; $58 over four years and Gordon played 9 games last year.
Not justifying Green's money but if he got $35 over 4 years it wouldn't be outrageous. He's 6'10", athletic, can really run the floor and had a solid 15 pt /7 reb. line over 3 seasons in OKC. He'll really help a frontline that needs length. He's been cleared for all basketball activities and he's had no post-surgical issues. Most important, if Boston manages to get another ring, it'll all be worth it. The Celtics were a bad rebounding/interior defense team last year and with this guy, Brandon Bass, maybe something from Sullinger or Melo, their front court is improved, no question. Just don't try to convince me Goran Dragic is worth $35M while a guy like Green is not worth $40M.
This Just In: NBA free agents get overpaid.

my gut tells me he ends up with something close to 7-8 per year.

Considering he was out of the game for a year, and had a heart issue, I was expecting him to get something like a 2/$10m deal... I doubt the rumored 4/40 is true. There doesn't exactly appear to be much interest around the league for BOS to go that high.

For next season yes that team will certainly contend.... beyond next season though that roster's key pieces are aging quickly and will break down even more. The free agent pieces they added were an old SG to replace and old SG and possibly $40 million to a tweener SF that didn't even play last season. Also there is very little possibility Ray is going to go back to Boston and compete for minutes between Terry, Bradley and Pietrus.

Rondo and Bradley are about the only long-term pieces there that make a meaningful impact down the road. I don't think that Sullinger is going to be anything more than a rotation big in the NBA and the Melo pick was just terrible (depth pick I'm fine with, but Melo will not be anything more). Long-term I honestly think they are in some trouble.

Beantownsboss
07-06-2012, 05:06 PM
It won't be 40 mil, it will be just under that probably about 37, 38. Which IMO is a good deal, Green has the talent to be an all-star, but at sometimes can be too passive. But with his injury and almost losing basketball, I believe he will become more assertive, and become a better player. 8, 9 mil a year isn't bad at all, look at what other people around the NBA are getting, like Asik for example. Green is leaps and bounds ahead of Asik, and will virtually be getting paid the same. So in conclusion, GOOD JOB DANNY.

considering his age and pedigree, and assuming he has a clean bill of health, this is just bogus.

OKC traded him BECAUSE he would command more or less 10 million. after losing ray, who else should they sign besides the 6 9 hybrid forward with three point range.

he had a rough first go with boston but it's a very different situation. he's not going to keel over on the court.

OKC has the best #3 in the game. Why would OKC want to pay Green starter money to be a back-up? Does that mean Green sucks?

As for the price tag it's high, but eventually DA will use it in a deal to get someone else.

I mean look at Josh Childress, he's making $6.500.000M and he shouldn't be in the league. There are countless examples. Marvin Williams is making $8.500.000M. These are players that aren't half as good as Green. It looks bloated at the out set but there are other very worse deals.

So the player OKC deemed expendable gets 4/40? Ainge, join Joe Dumars on the "I was once a genius, really, i was, ask anyone" list. Awful.

lol. yeah ainge is just a "terrible" gm. please..

he was expendable in OKC because of the dirth of young talent at the positions he would play. not because he is bad at basketball.


pretty much


is he even getting any other offers? it seems dumb to bid against yourself....

i agree but again, who else was out there to fit the need? and do you really think they would have done this if he wasn't healthy?


he got 4 years 36 million get your facts straight

hustlin the haters. its nuts how a guy can go down for a year and become worthless. it's like some of you guys think he should be playing in the freaking summer league.

again, former top 5 pick, 6 9 hybrid forward (a commodity in the world of lebron james) who can shoot and defend multiple positions.

roy hibbert deserves a max because he is tall, but jeff green can't get an extension b/c of a heart condition NO ONE on here knows anything about.

rondo, bradley, green, sullinger, melo. they are preparing for life after KG and pierce and this is a perfectly acceptable move that will not hinder them in the future.

Probably a bit more useful than 9 pages of comments centered around a false subject, right ?

Same money he got on a 1 yr voided deal. Big whoop, 4yrs & 36. Ainge is constructing a very nice bench. If Ainge hits on 1 of his 3 draft picks, that Celtic team is damn scary. Pietrus & probably Wilcox up next. Maybe even Krstic.

Rondo/Terry
Bradley/Pietrus
Pierce/Green/Joseph
Bass/Sullinger/Johnson
KG/Krstic/Wilcox/Melo

1 spot left open, maybe for Moore or Dooling. Or a trade Ainge has in the works.

4yr 36 is still overpaying.

What team with cap space was going to sign Green for $9M a year? That's all the GM needs to ask himself. Its called common sense. Should have simply priced him slightly higher than the mid-level. 3yr $24M would have been my max offer. Somebody wants to pay him more than $8M coming off a heart condition so be it.

Moore will make the regular season roster... I doubt Krstic (would be nice though)... Sean Williams will make the regular season roster also...

So you're saying 8 mil per year is acceptable but 9 mil per year is overpaying? That seems kind of arbitrary to me.

Yeah, could very well fall that way.

Ainge is still pursuing OJ Mayo options so this could get interesting.

$8M over 3 years is very different from $9M over 4 years. $12M less to pay out.

Even at the $8M it is overpaying, but if it's too close to the mid-level he may choose to just go somewhere else. In reality he is a mid-level player. Career averages of 14/5 on mediocre efficiency, only an average defender.

Really I want to know from Boston fans or people supporting this contract... what makes Jeff Green better than Brandon Bass who reportedly signed for 3 yrs $20M?

$6.7M over 3 years vs. $9M over 4 years.

He's not a better defender or rebounder. Not a significantly better scorer. Is it because he's 2 years younger? The Celtics management must see a lot more upside and potential left that I don't. I really don't see him getting much better already being 25 and sitting out a whole season.

He's a good player if healthy. Versatile, can score, can rebound, can play defense. Good youngster to pair with a QB like Rondo for the future. Greens game isn't a finished product by any stretch. Still developing & it will be good for him to get a training camp under Doc.

For some odd reason people conclude that this guy can't improve or develop? How much floor time has he seen in Celtic Green ? How many practices, training camps ?

IMO, this guy can still develop & improve & is far from a finished product. Define his role early, & let him develop under guys like Pierce & company.
