Do You Want Jeff Green Back?

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?

Things ended badly for Jeff Green last year.

Green eyes future with Celtics - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Green averaged 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 23.5 minutes in 26 regular-season games for Boston. His statistics dipped even more in the postseason when he averaged 7.3 points and 2.7 rebounds. He had just one double-digit scoring performance in the playoffs: 11 points against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their second-round series.

So what went wrong?

"It was tough to gather all that information so fast and try to gather the concepts of what they are trying to do," Green said.

Well, as things stand, he won't have a training camp or preseason to learn the concepts before some abbreviated (at best) season begins. So with that in mind, do you want Jeff Green Back?

I think the key factor is what his price ends up being.

Update: Jay King asks the question "How tough was the situation for Green?" (I think it was tougher than Jay gives him credit for, but we agree to disagree)
