San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green had a solid season despite a lackluster series in the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.

He averaged 9.1 points, 1.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds, shot 44% from the field, and shot 43% from the three-point line in 23.1 minutes during the the regular season. He later would find himself inserted into the starting lineup and became a key contributor throughout the Spurs' season.

And now that the season is over, Green will soon be a free agent and the Boston Celtics may be targeting the swingman.

An emerging player on the Celtics’ radar could be San Antonio restricted free agent Danny Green, who had a solid playoff stretch with the Spurs and is one of the league’s most improved players. Green started most of the postseason games for San Antonio, and because he is a second-round pick under the Arenas rule, the Spurs can match any offer to him. The Celtics will be seeking an athletic swingman who can play defense and has long-range shooting skills.

The Spurs are sure to match any reasonable offer made to Green in the offseason but he isn't worth re-signing should any team over pay. Green may have had a great regular season, but his poor playoff performance may have hurt his value. In the playoffs, he averaged 7.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists, shot 41% from the field, and 34% from the three-point line. And of course there was his disappearing act towards the end of the Spurs' playoff run and versus OKC.

What do you think Spurs fans? What would be a reasonable offer to re-sign Green?
