Green was drafted by the Celtics with the No. 18 overall pick in the first round of the 2005 NBA Draft and played two years with the C’s. Green only played in 32 games in his rookie season, averaging 5.2 points and 1.3 rebounds, but had a much better season in his second go around with Boston, averaging 10.4 points and 2.6 boards in a career-high 81 games in 2006-07.

Despite his improvements, Green would not return to the Celtics the next season, as he was part of the massive trade that brought Kevin Garnett to the Celtics. Green played 29 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 5.1 points before being shipped to the Houston Rockets, where he only played one game in 2008.

Green played 38 games with the Dallas Mavericks in ‘08-’09, averaging 5.2 points and 1.4 boards, but has not played in the NBA since.
