NBA Free Agency Rumors 2012: Jeff Green Has 'Great Environment' With Boston Celtics, Says Agent

Jeff Green's agent, David Falk, said that the Boston Celtics will have interest in his client and could possibly even be in line for a little bit of a hometown discount.

Falk told the Boston Herald that Boston is "a great environment" for Green, adding that he and Danny Ainge have a great relationship which could help Green land in Boston.

"I have to do my job, and part of my job is listening to offers," Falk said. "But unlike almost everyone else in the business, I don't worry about what number the guys get drafted; I worry about being in the right environment. I think Jeff in Boston's a great environment for him. We just have to work out the business side.

"You know, in my 38 years in this business, I've written an owner a letter twice to commend him on the job of a general manager. One time was in Utah with Kevin O'Connor (who handled a situation with Jeff Malone differently after there had been some friction) and the second time was with Danny.

"I thought the way Danny managed Jeff's injury situation was beyond professional. It was special to me, and I went out of my way to let Wyc (Grousbeck) know how much I appreciated it. I'm a person who puts a lot of stock in goodwill, so to me Danny Ainge has earned a lot of goodwill. It doesn't mean we're going to do it for free, but I really feel good about the situation."
