Gerald Green is set to re sign with the Boston Celtics after being away from the team for 9 years. Welcome back to Boston Gerald Green!
So the Celtics actually drafted Gerald Green in 2005 with the 18th overall pick. While he wasn't the worst player on our team, he certainly had a lot of things he needed to work on. For starters his jump shot was weak, and he was really just more of fast break guy who had A LOT of "ups". Over the years, Green has improved his defensive game and has added a decent jump shot to his repertoire. Not to mention Gerald looks like he's flying anytime he goes up for a dunk. Boston is going to sign Green to the veteran minimum of 1.4 Million dollars for the 2016-17 season. The Celtics dealt him away in 2007 when the whole KG trade went down. But I'm sure you guys can remember some of the dunks this guy has made over his career. Check out some of his top plays and his performance in the 2007 dunk contest before we traded him away to the Timberwolves.
Here's his top 10 plays of his career. WATCH THE NUMBER ONE PLAY ITS FUCKING NUTS..
Insanity. Green looks like he's floating every time he takes off for a dunk. I can't wait to see a few highlight reel dunks when he's back in the green and white this next season. What does this mean for the Celtics roster you might ask? I'm not exactly sure, but sadly if you ask me, this might mean a big trade could be in the works. If and when we successfully sign Gerald Green, we will now have 3 small forwards with him, Jae Crowder, and Jaylen Brown. In my opinion, this signing definitely hints that the Celtics might be willing to trade Jae Crowder in the hopes of getting Blake Griffin, Westbrook, or possibly even Jahill Okafor. While I would hate to see Crowder go, I am looking foward to seeing what Green has to offer. Stay tuned for more updates on the Celtics, as I am confident some more plays are going to be made this summer.
