Jeff Green Rumors: Celtics Could Sign Forward For 4 Years, $40 Million, According To Report

Jeff Green has been a sub-optimal return for Kendrick Perkins since coming to Boston in a trade in 2010, and not just because of a heart condition that forced him to sit out the 2011-12 season. So it makes abundant amounts of sense for the Boston Celtics to be considering signing him to a deal worth around four years and $40 million, as SI.com's Sam Amick reports.

On the Celtics front, agent David Falk continues to say he thinks a deal gets done with Boston for free agent forward Jeff Green. One source with knowledge of the talks says it may be in the four years, $40 million neighborhood, but it is not done. "I’m confident it’ll get done," Falk told SI.com.

If Green does, indeed, get a $40 million deal over four years, he'll be getting more millions of dollars per year than he scored points per game with the Celtics in 26 games in 2011 — he managed just 9.8 points per contest in 23.5 minutes per game.
