Jeff Green Receiving Free Agent Interest Beyond Celtics

Jeff Green, who is an unrestricted free agent after a heart condition requiring surgery ended his 2011-12 season with the Boston Celtics before it began, is receiving strong interest as he prepare to return to the court, his agent David Falk told SI.com's Sam Amick.

Green had surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm in early January, and is said to be back to 100 percent. He'd signed a one-year, $9 million contract with the Celtics in December as a restricted free agent, but the discovery of the aneurysm led to the voiding of the deal as Green had to go under the knife. Because Green was waived, he is now an unrestricted free agent.

Falk implies that while Boston remains at or near the top of the list, Green's camp will listen to all offers. Green was traded to the Celtics in February 2011 in exchange for Kendrick Perkins. He'd be drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 with Boston's No. 5 overall pick, conveyed to Seattle in the Ray Allen trade.
