Jeff Green Qualifying Offer Withdrawn By Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics quietly withdrew their qualifying offer to free agent forward Jeff Green during the middle of December, making him an unrestricted free agent, general manager Danny Ainge confirmed to ESPN's Peter May.

Green could theoretically sign with another team today, but it's improbable that he will find a home soon -- he is scheduled for heart surgery on Monday to repair an aortic aneurysm, and the recovery will require that Green misses at least the rest of this season. It's possible but unlikely that another team could sign Green and stash him until he's ready to play.

The Celtics signed Green to a one-year, $9 million contract prior to the season, but the deal was voided after his heart condition led to a failed physical. By withdrawing their qualifying offer for Green, the Celtics surrendered their right to match any free agent offer he receives. They could still potentially use Green in a sign-and-trade deal.

Green would have been a restricted free agent after this season if the Celtics had not withdrawn their qualifying offer.

Jeff Green Extended One-Year, $5.9 Million Qualifying Offer From Celtics

Jeff Green has been extended a one-year, $5.9 million qualifying offer from the Boston Celtics on Thursday, making him a restricted free agent if he and the Celtics can't reach an agreement before free agency.

When the league is ready for business, the Celtics will have the right to match any offer Green receives on the open market. They could also sign him to a long-term extension. If neither option happens, Green could sign the one-year qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent after next season. (via WEEI)

Green averaged 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 26 games in Boston. Green was acquired at the trade deadline in the deal that sent Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Green and Krstic. In 75 total games this season, Green averaged 13.3 points and 4.8 rebounds.

The Celtics also picked up the second-year option on point guard Avery Bradley, who averaged 1.7 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.4 assists in 31 games in Boston last season.

Jeff Green Will Receive Qualifying Offer This Week From Boston Celtics

Jeff Green will receive a qualifying offer from the Boston Celtics this week, according to general manager Danny Ainge.

"It'll happen this week," Ainge told Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston.

Green averaged 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 26 games in Boston. Green was acquired at the trade deadline in the deal that sent Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Green and Krstic. In 75 total games this season, Green averaged 13.3 points and 4.8 rebounds.

The qualifying offer is worth $5.9 million over one year. Boston will be able to match any offer given to Green, who is a restricted free agent, on the open market. If he does not receive any additional offers, Green can sign the deal and will become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. In addition, the Celtics can work out a long-term deal with him.
