A few pieces of paperwork remain, but just about everything else is in place for Jeff Green to return to Boston next year. Green agreed to a multiyear deal with the Celtics on Saturday, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Green's agent, David Falk, said the contract will be official Wednesday, when teams are allowed to start officially signing players. "We've reached agreement in principal for him to return," Falk said. "You see a situation like Jeff's where there's a tremendous level of goodwill that been built up over the last year and half -- I've got a...

Lil’ Wayne once said he woke up in the morning, ashed his blunt in his grammy award, looked into the mirror and told the man staring back, “You’s an ill n****.”Well, I woke up this morning, drank a glass of water, read the Boston Herald, looked into the mirror and saw a smidgen of vomit trickling down my chin because JEFF GREEN JUST GOT PAID $36 MILLION OVER FOUR SEASONS...
Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who lives a few golf shots away from Rollins College, where the Celtics summer league team is practicing, swung by for tonight’s session, and shared a few thoughts about the loss of Ray Allen to Miami.
“I thought we (courted Allen). Danny (Ainge) in particular did exactly what he should have done. Kevin Garnett was our focal point, and...
INSIDE THE MIND
One report says that part of the reason Ray Allen chose to sign with the Heat is because he wants revenge on the Boston Celtics.
Looking at the photo above probably extracts an emotion from
you one way or another but to me, the photo above doesn’t mean much. The acquisition of Ray Allen for the
Miami Heat will be perfect for both parties. Ray Allen now gets his wish of standing in a corner taking
four three pointers a game while not doing much else. I get that making your opponent stronger is...
I completely understand why Ray Allen chose to sign with the Miami Heat.
He gets to go to a team that will contend for a championship every year for the rest of his career, his game is made easier for his aging legs as he’ll likely have many more open, spot-up jumpers with the Heat, and not running through multiple screens to get open. He’s going to Miami, where he can play golf...
Of those lamenting Ray Allen leaving Boston for Miami, Celtics coach Doc Rivers will be among the saddest to see the shooting guard go. In the run-up to free agency, Rivers was optimistic that Allen would return but also admitted he wasn't sure what Allen was thinking. When the news finally came that the player Rivers had once said would be "scary" to lose was going...
One offseason shoulder surgery for Celtics guard Avery Bradley appears to not be enough. It's going to take two to get him in shape for next year. Surgery on Bradley's right shoulder, scheduled for Tuesday, may keep him sidelined into the beginning of next season, Celtics director of player personnel Austin Ainge said Sunday, as reported by ESPN. Bradley has already had surgery...
While Jason Terry will help fill the void left by Ray Allen, the Celtics could still look to add some backcourt depth. O.J. Mayo is one name that's been tossed around throughout the offseason, and the Celtics apparently aren't closing the book on acquiring the free-agent guard. The C's are still interested in acquiring Mayo, according to CSNNE.com, but they may have to...
