Jeff Green Signs One Year Deal With Celtics

According to Chris Broussard of ESPN Jeff Green has signed a one year contract with the Boston Celtics worth 9 million dollars. 

Jeff Green signed 1-year deal worth $9 million with Celtics, source said. He did not sign the mere qualifying offer.

It had been previously reported that Green had signed the one year qualifying offer, worth 5.8 million, rather than nine. I'm not sure what changed, but Jeff Green just got paid, even if it's only for a year.

Green was acquired by the Celtics in a somewhat controversial trade deadline deal last season, which sent Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Green. Green went on to play 26 regular season games with the Celtics – starting two – and appeared in nine playoff games. In 26 regular season games with the Celtics Green averaged just under 10 points per game in about 24 minutes of action. In the playoffs he averaged 7.3.

David West Trade: Celtics Expected To Send Jermaine O'Neal Plus One To New Orleans

Details are starting to trickle in on the potential David West trade as Adrian Wojnarowski brings word that the Boston Celtics may be looking to send Jermaine O'Neal plus one other player (yet to be identified) to the New Orleans Hornets as part of a sign-and-trade deal for the free agent power forward.

The two-time NBA All-Star, who is coming off an ACL tear from last season, is averaging 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds across eight season with the Hornets, where he's played since being drafted in 2003.

The deal is expected to be worth $27-29 million across three years.

O'Neal, who recently underwent knee surgery himself prior to under-performing last season with the Celtics, today told that one of the only things bringing him back from the brink of retirement was a chance to play in the NBA finals.

Let's hope for his sake the Hornets have a big year.

NBA Rumors: David West, Boston Celtics 'Close' To A Deal, According To Report

The Boston Celtics may be close to taking another step towards bolstering its 2011-12 line-up after a report on Friday suggested the team was "close to a deal" with free agent power forward David West.

David Aldridge reports:

A two-time All-Star, West has averaged 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds in his eight NBA seasons. If healthy, West would be a boon whether starting or coming off the bench for the Celtics, who acquired Brandon Bass earlier Friday from Orlando for forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis.

West has been with the New Orleans Hornets since being drafted in 2003 and; however, the 31-year old veteran ruptured his ACL last season and has not been considered one of the "must-have" free agents.

Until now.

In addition, Adrian Wojnarowski brings word sign-and-trade deal would be worth $27-29 million across three years.

NBA Trade Rumors 2011: Why Would Boston Celtics Trade Rajon Rando?

It might come as a surprise for some Boston Celtics fans that their cheap, two-time All-Star point guard Rajon Rando is currently being shopped around by its general manager Danny Ainge, and there has been some NBA experts trying to find out why.

On Monday, SB Nation's NBA Editor Tom Ziller tried to answer this question in his weekly column The Hook:

"So then why would Ainge look to trade Rondo?

The answer on the Rondo question is the same for every question about Ainge's motivation: he is not satisfied with the current state of the Celtics, and wants to improve the club."

Ziller says don't expect that Ainge will just settle on possibly moving just Rando. More players could be on their way out of Boston.

"Garnett will be a free agent next year," writes Ziller, "and he's growing ever closer to the end. Allen will be a free agent, too, and while he can shoot forever, if the team isn't contending, keeping him could be difficult. Pierce has an additional guaranteed season. Because of their ages and those contract situations, they wouldn't be terribly attractive in the trade market. Each could pull maybe a sub-All-Star young player -- KG, especially, still has pull as a vet that can whip an underperforming roster into shape quickly -- but none of them alone can guarantee the future of the roster."
