Jeff Green Biography
Jeff Green was born August 28, 1986 and is an American professional basketball forward with the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Green attended Georgetown University until following his junior year, when he entered the 2007 NBA Draft. He was selected fifth overall by the Boston Celtics, and was subsequently traded to the Seattle SuperSonics (now known as the Oklahoma City Thunder) in a trade for Ray Allen and Glen Davis. Green would be traded back to the Celtics during the 2010–2011 season.
On February 25, 2011, the NBA's trade deadline, Green was traded to the Boston Celtics, who initially drafted Green, along with Nenad Krstic and a protected 2012 first round pick originally from the Los Angeles Clippers, in exchange for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson.
In Boston, Green was thought of being a future replacement for aging All-Star Paul Pierce as the small forward alongside All-Star Rajon Rondo. After averaging 15.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in Oklahoma City, Green averaged 9.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and .7 assists in Boston. Green saw a big drop in minutes per game as well, dropping from 37.0 minutes to 23.4 minutes. The Celtics made it to the playoffs as the number three seed in the Eastern Conference. They swept the New York Knicks in the first round. In the next round, however, they were eliminated by the Miami Heat. Green became a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
On December 10, 2011 Green signed a 1 year, $9 million contract with the Boston Celtics. On December 17, Jeff Green was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm, which would cause him to miss the 2011–2012 season. Because of the surgery, he failed his physical, which revoked the Celtics' qualifying offer, thus making him an unrestricted free agent.
Even though Green had season ending surgery, he spent plenty of time with his former Celtics teammates during the season and voiced his desire to return to the team for the 2012–13 season. Former teammate Kevin Durant dedicated his 2012 season to Green.
Green used his down time not only to rehab from surgery but to complete his coursework at Georgetown, graduating on May 19, 2012 with a degree in English with a minor in theology.
On June 16, 2012, the NBA granted Boston a 2013 second-round pick from Oklahoma City in a dispute over Jeff Green's medical condition. The pick was previously acquired by the Thunder from the Charlotte Bobcats in 2011 for Byron Mullens.
On August 22, 2012 it was announced that Green re-signed with the Boston Celtics on a four-year, $36 million contract.
On November 23, 2012 against his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, Green scored 17 points off the bench. Two weeks later he scored 19 points on 6 of 12 shooting, along with 8 rebounds, in an overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. On February 22, 2013, in a game against the Phoenix Suns, Green had his best game as a Celtic, scoring 31 points, shooting 11-14 from the field, grabbing 7 rebounds and blocking 5 shots, as the Celtics crushed the Suns 113-88.
