Jeff Green put up 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game over his 26 games in a Boston Celtics uniform two seasons ago.
Everyone knows the story by now.
In the middle of the 2010-2011 season, the Celtics dealt their starting center Kendrick Perkins and backup combo guard Nate Robinson to Oklahoma City in exchange for Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic and the draft pick that became Fab Melo.
Now Krstic has fled to Europe for good, and Green was forced to miss the entire 2011-2012 season due to heart surgery.
Green will return next season for the Celtics with a fat new contract, having done nothing for the team to earn it. He will have to play very well, very early or playing in Boston will get rather uncomfortable as the Celtics learn to regret re-signing him.
