As expected, Jeff Green is close to re-joining the Boston Celtics, and he’ll be a much richer man for it. Per the Boston Globe: “The two sides have agreed to the framework of a four-year, $36 million deal to return to the Celtics and Green participated in a press conference nearly two weeks ago, but agent David Falk said they are still negotiating issues dealing with the new collective bargaining agreement. ‘I expect it will be done imminently,’ he said. ‘Just some collective bargaining issues that changed. Just some details stuff, nothing serious.’ Green missed all of last season after surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm but has been cleared to return to the NBA. Falk said Green was grateful for how the Celtics treated him during his recovery process and it was his top priority to return to Boston.”
