Green, a 6-7 guard/forward, is returning to the team that drafted him 18th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft. He spent his first two pro seasons with the Celtics before being a part of the trade that sent Kevin Garnett to Boston; he would spend the next seasons bouncing around between the Timberwolves, Rockets, Mavericks, New Jersey Nets, Pacers, Suns, and the Miami Heat. At one point, Green spent some time in Russia with Krasyne Krylia.
His most recent campaign was spent in South Beach, where he appeared in 69 games for Erik Spoelstra and averaged 8.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. The Celtics, who run a very high-paced offense, should be a great destination for Green, who’s at his best when he can utilize his athleticism in transition. He’s also a reliable shooter, despite being an erratic player, and shoots the long ball at a 36 percent clip for his career.
Back in 2013-14, as a member of the Phoenix Suns, Green put together the best season of his career when he averaged 15.8 points, shot 40 percent from three, and finished fourth in the league with 204 threes made.
