If Danny Ainge picked up the phone and offered Jeff Green and his $32m contract for absolutely nothing, would any GM in the league take the offer?

Has a player ever been given away? Is it against the rules?

The guy is horrible. He's slow. Puts absolutely no effort. And I don't think he's sober. The way he gives interviews, the absolutely atrocious reaction speed, the complete lack of effort. I really think he's drugged out on benzos. Just watch him play... There's no way this dude he's clear-headed.

He needs to be gtfo. If I were Doc Rivers, he'd be riding the pine and would never come off the bench... but why pay $32m to a player who shouldn't get any minutes?

Liability for sure. They should have never traded for him. Signing him to that contract is another mistake.

From his body language he seems not happy. I bet he still misses OKC. Having Kevin Garnett has your team does not help.

Watch a few of his interviews. I have a lot of friends with bad drug habits and he sounds exactly like them when they're barred out. Listen to how he almost slurs his words, how slow they are pronounced, and how he's so "out of it".

There are some teams that are in dire need of a SF, like the Cavs or Kings. I suggested a trade on the Celtics board that I wonder if the Cavs would be willing to do: Green/Sullinger/Lee for Varejao/Casspi. It gives the Celtics the center they needed and the Cavs get an upgrade at SF, a young promising PF prospect and a good bench wing that they lack. Casspi becomes disposable in that scenario (well, he already is, as he has been playing pretty awful in the last year and a half and is now a fringe rotation player), so they send him as a filler, and the Celtics might be able to use him as a backup SF if Rondo/Pierce/KG can mentor him to at least return to something resembling his rookie year form. I think it's a win/win trade.

Varejao is valued highly by Cavs management and fans. It is a bad trade for Cavs to trade him for a player who is playing terrible and coming off a major surgery.

I honestly do not know why Ainge gave him that contract ? Were there a lot of suitors for him ?

This is a ridiculous thread. I am one of many upset celtics fans who is pissed at the start Green has had...but seriously pointing to drugs???

And that trade would never happen.

He has just had a year off.

This Green hate is pathetic.

Atm he is not playing great, but hes getting like 20mins a game. He needs time and confidence. Both will come.

Stop being SO DISRESPECTFUL!

The man had a major heart issue and for you to say nonsense like that is not right. Speak whatever and however you want to about his game, but don't make personal assertions like you know what's going on, that's just not fair.

he just had heart surgery, he'll get into form eventually.

I don't agree with the signing though, you don't drop that kinda money on a guy who needs time to recover and is still a question mark if he does recover fully or not, especially when you're trying to win a championship

Looking like a liability at the moment. Could have signed him for a discount. Who else was going to drop $40 million on him?

Hope he does recover.

At the moment a liability. But the Celtics might need him in the future in case someone goes down with an injury.

He was out for a year following heart surgery and people are already complaining? He's been playing OK so far IMO. Started the season pretty bad but has played pretty good recently aside from tonights Detroit game. Give him some more time and he'll be fine.

The problem is Jeff Green doesn't do anything really well. I mean, his BEST case would have been a Glenn Robinson career. That clearly did not happen. His next stop is Lee Nailon.

Green is an average defender, a bonus offensive player, but lacks 3pt range.
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

Liability. You don't give a tweener that has a bad heart and missed an entire season a mutliyear deal. I know Celtics need depth versatility for the ancient Pierce and KG, but you're not really getting that with Green until next season and on top of that he's arguably not that good of a player. Bad stuff for a window that is getting shut

This is right. People hoped he would be more like Marion than Robinson, but whatever.

Too bad a rebounder to play a lot of PF. Not much of an interior defender. Just a pretty defender against perimeter player (he has a much better reputation than he deserves). Not a good shooter. Not a good ball handler or passer.

The thing is, these limitations aren't new. They've been there his whole career.

The contract is real bad, similar to the Outlaw deal from a few years ago.

the lakers can offer the celtics


Chris Duhon
Steve Blake
and an option of Earl Clark and or Devin Ebanks.

This would make both teams automatically better.
