The single trade deadline move that shocked the basketball world was the Kendrick Perkins/Jeff Green deal.
On one side, you have a defensive center heading to an already solid defensive team, making it a pretty great trade. On the other side, you have a prolific scorer and a guy who brings energy to the club.
That guy is Green. While the Celtics' number one priority is most definitely not the scoring game, Green has embraced his role with open arms. Now, there is absolutely no way that the C's will let him go this offseason. He is a solid shooter, makes his foul shots, and plays to an efficient rate, according to Doc Rivers.
He will (and I repeat, will) be their number one scorer in about four years' time. For now, his numbers will be flawed while he plays under the shadow of the Big Four.
He averaged just nine points per game after the trade that shipped him to Boston.
