Jeff Green "essentially" back with the Celtics

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...

Report: Ray Allen to Get Quick Offer From Heat, Who Want to Lock Him Up Early in Free Agency

If Ray Allen is taking his talents to South Beach, the Heat would prefer an RSVP sooner rather than later. The Heat have made the Celtics veteran "their prime offseason target and will pursue him strongly" when free agency begins Sunday morning just after midnight, Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports.

Doc Rivers Thinks Ray Allen Will Return to Boston, Says Celtics Will Lock Up Jeff Green

He seemed to think Boston would have a pretty good chance getting both players to stay. "We...

Report: Celtics Willing to Double Heat's Offer to Ray Allen

They're reportedly willing to give Allen $12 million over two years, although they've yet to make an official offer. The Grizzlies have reportedly...

LeBron James Likes Ray Allen in Heat Jersey, Calls 'Slam' Cover Shot of Himself 'Epic' (Photos)

Winning it all has certainly changed LeBron James, and he's hoping it will change Ray Allen's jersey choice, too. With a title under his belt, James is back on Twitter, and he's been using his feed for some self-congratulation as well as a sneak peak at what Allen could look like in Heat colors. James retweeted a photo of Allen in Miami threads on Tuesday and more than...

Report: Celtics Express Interest in Jason Terry, Nick Young

Re-signing Ray Allen likely remains the top priority for the Celtics, but they have reportedly begun searching for a replacement just in case he signs elsewhere. The C's are pursuing Jason Terry, and have also shown interest in Nick Young, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Terry has been with the Mavericks since 2004 but is currently a free agent. Known for...

Danny Ainge Dismantling Celtics' Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen Looks Less Likely Every Day

When last season opened, every prediction involving the Celtics included an addendum: "if they can stay healthy." A team dominated by three players 34 years old or older and a fourth, center Jermaine O'Neal, just past his 33rd birthday was bound to run into medical issues eventually. Injuries indeed played a factor in Boston's inability to get past the Miami Heat...

Jason Terry, Come On Down!

So Marc Spears is reporting that the Celtics will be aquiring Jason Terry for the mid-level exception and still plan to sign Ray Allen. How, why or when are all questions left to people with a better knowledge of the NBA salary cap than me.
