Jeff Green Reached ‘Agreement in Principal’ to Return to Boston Celtics

by July 09, 2012

The 25-year old Jeff Green will re-sign with the Boston Celtics on a multi-year deal (terms are currently undisclosed), after missing all of last season due to a heart condition. Per the Boston Globe: “Green, 25, missed all of last season after surgery to repair an aortic root but spent considerable time in Boston rehabilitating and even sat on the bench during some home games. That treatment and the fact the Celtics signed Green to a one-year $9 million deal before the injury and did not give him the $5.9 million qualifying offer and then allowed him to be an unrestricted free agent was critical in Green’s return. ‘We’ve reached agreement in principal for him to return,’ agent David 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 long memory. I remember people who treat me well and I remember people who don’t.’ When asked if Green was official, Ainge told the Globe: ‘It’s looking good. We intend to sign him. We anticipate it being (official) by Wednesday.'”
