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:

FINALLY!!!

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.
