Grantland's Zach Lowe recently published a column "33 Crazy Predictions for the NBA Season." No. 2 on his list is "Boston will keep Rajon Rondo and trade Jeff Green." While everyone and their mother has a theory on Rondo's future, Lowe does provide some optimistic insight for Celtics fans hoping Boston can deal Green:
Green has a player option for 2015-16, meaning he may be working on a de facto expiring contract. His price will come down as the season moves along, but Boston might be willing to accept a diminished return. He’s a likable guy with more fans across the league than you might expect, and he can split minutes between the two forward positions.
We know now that Green isn’t a primary offensive option, but he has become a good spot-up shooter, he runs the floor, and he’s a nice secondary threat. He can attack gaps in the defense, provided a teammate cracks them open first.
Green could fit in lots of places. If Boston doesn’t view him as a long-term core piece, he’ll be easy to move.
Lowe mentions Toronto, Atlanta, Detroit, Houston and New York as intriguing potential destinations.
