Found July 02, 2012 on Celtics Life:
To be clear, Danny Ainge spoke as if Jeff Green will almost certainly sign at end of moratorium so essentially he's back with #Celtics.— Scott Souza (@scott_souza) July 2, 2012 Chris Broussard also added: "His agent, David Falk, told me Boston is the first, second and third option for Jeff Green." Seems like this is a done deal? Though, there was never a serious worry that Green wouldn't return to the Celtics. In one sense, Danny Ainge really has to bring Jeff Green back because otherwise he would have traded Kendrick Perkins for literally almost nothing.
