A couple of Celtics face familiar faces in OKC

Jeff Green and DJ White both played for Oklahoma City.

Jeff Green played against the Thunder in Boston earlier this year (and had a really good game, scoring 17 points by the way) but this will be his first time since being traded to return to Oklahoma City.

He developed close ties with his former teammates, many that he still maintains years later, and appreciates the time he spent in Oklahoma City. On this trip, though, his focus will be sending another win back to the city of Boston. "(Oklahoma City is) a special place, it's where I started my career," he said. "But then again, I'm a guy who moves on. This (Boston) is my city now. This is where I play. This is where I live. Thoughts and flashbacks will come back, but when it's all said and done, I'm there to play basketball."

Another guy that played for OKC was DJ White. Of course his 10 day contract is up today so he'll have to get another 10 day contract if he wants to have a shot at the Thunder. Then it is highly more likely that he'll see time against his other former team, the Bobcats. Which sounds fine with him.

"I've played Oklahoma, I've played them before, so it's just another game. It'll be good to see those guys. I'd love to play Charlotte though," White said with a laugh. "I'd love to see them. But that's a different topic. At the end of the day, it's basketball, so hopefully I'll be there for those games."

Gary Washburn reports that both White and Randolph were on the flight to OKC, so it sounds like they've got a good shot at getting new contracts.
