Jeff Green Traded To Celtics, Back Where He Started

Jeff Green has only been in the NBA for three and a half years, but he has made his presence known. In just a 289 games, all with the Seattle Sonics/Oklahoma City Thunder, Green has put up impressive numbers, averaging 14.2 points and 5.8 rebounds while shooting 44.3% for his career.

Green has gone under the radar for the majority of his career, but with news of Thursday’s blockbuster trade in which he was traded along with Nenad Krstic to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson, that may change.

The trade signifies a homecoming of sorts for Green, who was drafted by the Celtics with the fifth overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft. However, Green’s draft rights were immediately traded to the Seattle Sonics in exchange for a sharpshooter named Ray Allen.

Green is having another solid season this year, averaging 15.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in 49 games for Oklahoma City. In addition, he is shooting 43.7% from the floor and 30.4% beyond the arc.

The 6 ’9", 235-pound forward played college ball at Georgetown University and attended Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, Maryland.
