Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Twitter is all a-twitter and Celtics fans are buzzing. Dare we believe that Jeff Green is finally, officially a Celtic after almost 2 months of the deal being "imminent"? Two things point to the possibility that he's finally signed. First, this from Sam Amick:
A bit of free agency housecleaning: The agent for forward Jeff Green, David Falk, told me last night that the four-year deal with Boston worth approximately $36 million should finally be formalized "in the next day or two...We just had some sort of technical and (salary cap) issues that were holding it up. Nothing serious." I'd reported in early July that I was hearing the deal was in the neighborhood of four years, $40 million and it wasn't too far off. So considering he's seen as a key piece of the semi-revamped Boston club, Celtics fans, do you like the addition or is it too pricey considering Jeff's health history?
Following that was this tweet from Jeff Green:

Now, it would seem that some long awaited event, like the signing of a contract, has finally been accomplished. But, since we haven't gotten any official notice from the Boston media, it could be that a package he was waiting for in the mail came, or his dog was housebroken, or his telephone got fixed, or any number of things. But, I choose to think that the contract is FINALLY (with 3 exclamation points) done. I'll update if there is any confirmation in the Boston press.

Mr. Jeff Green just signed a pretty nice contract, reportedly four years for around $36 million. That's a lot of money, especially for someone who will be the seventh man (sixth man, that's Jason Terry's job).
Still, you'd expect that Green is going to get some significant playing time relieving both Paul Piece and Brandon Bass next season and beyond. Why else...

Boston Celtics press release:
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed free agent forward Jeff Green. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Yesterday the Celtics were reimbursed for their loyalty and patience and had F/A Jeff Green re-sign with them. Last season Green was sidelined due to an aortic aneurysm and was greatly missed on the court. Green is expected to be a vital piece off the bench for Boston’s run to the ECF this upcoming season.
The Celtics officially signed Jeff Green, more than a month after coming to terms on a contract.
With the announcement that Jeff Green has finally been officially signed, it would seem that Danny's job of re-stocking the Celtics for the next season would be finished. The Celtics have the deepest bench that they have had since the championship season, and maybe even deeper.
Signed, sealed and delivered are Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass, Jason Terry, Chris Wilcox, Courtney...
